    Don't worry, that is not a problem. You can pull out mains cable anytime. So far nobody from Philips gave us the reason for cold rebooting need in recent FW images.

    Hi,

    I have the 40PFL8606H/12.
    After upgrading to FW 14.99 I hear a lot more cracking over the speakers. Never really noticed it before but since this update is installed, I hear it quite often.

    This happens with (HD) tv via a settop box but also when playing a movie or dvd from my media player with the sound through my tv.


    Haven't looked much at the difference in image quality as I'm still not quite sure what the optimal settings are so can't really comment on that.

    It's not just me then. I too have audio crackling on my 46PFL9706. I have reported this issue on every firmware since january but it has never been acknowledged.

    My audio/video sources are a BluRay player, a Boxee Box and a Xbox 360. All are connected with HDMI and configured to output regular stereo audio (PCM). Optical out on the TV is connected to DAC and then amplifier. I had the exact same setup with a Samsung TV (even same cables) before the Philips and that worked fine. The crackling is rare, at most once every hour or so, and it happens with all sources. It seems to happen slightly more often with the Xbox but that's difficult to verify.

    I'm also experiencing the cracking sound more often when watching TV thru a settop box connected thru HDMI and also when using asus o!play also thru HDMI.

    I had experiencied the the cracking sound in previous firmwares, on 14.99 it happens more often and the only way to stop it is once it starts happening, put the tv in standby and power it on again, and for some hours it stops. My tv is 46pfl9706h.

    Now we also have users, reporting to us that it was better before.

    I saw some Photos from Toengel already and asked him for some more Details.
    Thats the same i can ask all other who are complaining about the Black or local Dimming.
    Share Photos and Picture Settings.

    Hello Thomas,

    Would it be possible for you to comment on further development on the FW of this TV? Since the developers managed to improve the local dimming issue, does that mean they now know where the problem is and are able to improve it further?

    In my post earlier in this thread I showed how my screen still have some issues though it is better. But my question is; is the delopers satisfied as it is or are they still looking to improve?

    and BTW: Too bad Philips will discontinue the 21:9 series. Really really bad news. I was exited to see what would be the next step for this model during IFA 2012..

    Philips seems still interested in our (members of the forum) opinion about their decision regarding stopping making 21:9 TV's. For this purpose I'd created a poll:

    http://www.supportforum.philips.com/...king-21-9-TV-s

    Can all 21:9 fans please vote and maybe we can do anything about this decision after all!

    Unfortunately the decison is/was made by the markets as the 21:9 aspect ratio was too odd and expensive for average consumer. Lucyly I bought 58PFL9956/T12 two months ago - hope it works ok years and also that Philips still continues to improve its firmware. Best set for movie fan like me

    I agree on the expensive part, however I think the Philips Cinema Gold 21:9 was quite affordable. The new Cinema Gold TV would've also been affordable. I'd rather buy a 50 inch 21:9 Philips Cinema Gold TV than a 46 inch 16:9 LG TV. The price point should've been chosen to be more or less the same to be interesting for the masses.

    @hardsoft: Could you please vote on the poll?

    Hi

    sure we further improve our Products. But not only for this but for all Devices, if and when there will be a new Firmware is something noone can say.

    Thomas (or anyone else at Philips who knows the answer),

    Do the different picture 'modes' (Vivid, Cinema, Games etc) actually have different built in settings? What I mean is, if I set all the setting in the menus the same for each picture mode will they all behave in the same way or are there differences inherent to each mode that I can't change, and if so what are they?

    I’ve got a 46PFL9706 by the way...

    Thanks,

    Eliot

    Angry

    My TV started to reboot again with 0.14.99.0 Don't know if it is the 2 hour bug or randomly. Happens every night. Picture goes blank, ambilight turns off, ambilight turns on, and picture appears again. 52pfl9606. This is not acceptable! I complained about this a few months back.

    Other bugs, or is it features that no one will ever fix.

    Local dimming works like sh..
    Artefacts in fast moving objects,
    Sharpness is always on.
    TV does not know how to auto-fill the screen when turned on, have to zap back and forth to HDMI2 and HDMI1 again.
    24P is not 24P but 3:2 pulldown.

    And so on and so on. I payed 2800 euro for this piece of s...
    Sence and simplicity???
