I had the same problem.
Just installed the update and it is solved!
Even think NETTV is faster than I have seen it before.
Since today i have a black screen if i choose NET TV or EPG. Is it possible the server is down? If it's only today how often is this gonna happen?
Since the systemboard of my 32PFL9705H was replaced, everything -Net TV included- worked perfect, with firmware v140.39 installed. Then I got an e-mail that v140.40 was out, and would make Net TV even better. I installed 140.40 and the very same day I lost 4 HD channels on my TV (Ziggo-provider). At first I thought it was a provider problem, but they stated that nothing changed and there were no disturbances. 3 Times a day I got an announcement that there were channel-updates, and when I tried to update, the result was no new channels....After a few days, Net TV stopped working too.
I flashed the firmware down to v140.39 and everything was back to normal! All channels present and Net TV working.
At the end I must say that v140.40 for my 9705 is a no-go!
Problem solved. I put the power off (no standby) and everything is working fine. In the future I will try this first. It can fox your problem most of the time.

I have made a "hard switch off" for some minutes, that did not work!

a) no subtitles on media player files from usb or over the network
b) stupid Net TV infrastracture that does not work
c) slow and often crashing operating system, especially if pushed (like for example fast change between functions or switch off and then on in few seconds and try to change a channel or reduce volume - it stucks and needs shutdown by tv-set button for a few seconds)
Once more they have made all us feeling stupid that we have chosen philips instead of any other brand.
Of course for all the above there are extremely stupid and ridiculous replies from philips among the posts of this forum!!!
A big thank you for everything to philips so far...!!!
These people (together with germans and french) are those who decide the future of my country these days. I am very afraid of the outcome since as I said above it is all a problem of ankylosis that all europeans suffer from. And what is worrying is that they do not seem to understand that it is a european problem and not each separate european country member problem...
nettv works at last
I had no nettv the last months.
My tv 37pfl7605 said there was no software update and nettv only said "no connection with server, try again later"
On the site http://www.philips.nl/c/televisie-70.../nl/?t=support I downloaded a upgrade for my tv and with a usb stick......nettv works great and fast.
Hope it will last a long time
Yes it was the update...
The TV set is equipped with a network adapter. Does this work or not?
Is it available to perform software update or not through the internet? Or does this exist on the menu just to impress me...???
Then why does it say my TV set is up to date...???
Maybe because this update never had the option to be performed through internet???
Why was that...???
Nice work philips once again...!!!!
With my sincerest condolences
I have exactly the same situation. This option in the menu is useless. It always says "TV is up to date"... So all the updates I have been doing with USB flash stick only. Stupid

The problem still persist even if I tried all possible changes to my network configuration at home.
the strange things are:
- my DLNA is working fine, I can see all videos from my TV
- I have a BDP7500B2 also with NET TV features and it is working perfectly.
I'll make some final tests and then call local support since TV is younger than to years and warranty in Italy is still valid.
in the mean time I wish all the best for Christmas.
I am VERY puzzeld WHY Philips never reacts on the fact that updates via internet are not available and have to be done nowaydays very old fahsioned via an USB stick ! And WHY Philips does not fix bugs like it not being possible to switch to FM radio with a HTS 5590 and the TV remote. Philips simply seems to ignore this, like they tried to do with the DynGOP32 bug in Germany that caused so many problems. It is that Ambilight is "magic", otherwise I really would have ditched my Philips TV and HTS already. Is it that difficult ? Does Philips really "test" things or do they let the things ripe at the customer ?
It really pisses me of, when Philips is experimenting with online Services... usually a trade mark like this, should pre-test the software before it goes "live"...
