    Below are links to 14.97 and 14.98 firmware for 8&9 2011 series:

    https://dl.dropbox.com/u/73234139/autorun_0.14.97.upg
    https://dl.dropbox.com/u/73234139/autorun_0.14.98.upg

    They are still uploading to my dropbox account, because connection is slow, they will be OK in 1 hour.

    EDIT: 14.97 and 14.98 are uploaded.

    You should check first if you can download this version, as not all software versions can be downloaded. Some may damage the TV, I can confirm a second hand. I really did with the previous 9955 model and right service. I would not do so lightly.

    Hi

    What he was saying is that Downgrading without Instructions can possibly harm the TV.
    If the TV is somehow damaged this is not within Warranty so before you Downgrade, you should always contact your local Support.

    @Philips - Thomas
    We appreciate your warning about downgrade Thomas.
    But as this is already a 70+ posts thread about 14.99 black level regression - care to comment? It will be a lot better than just warning us.
    Thank you in advance.

    Hi

    sure i can comment.
    We do have users here reporting that local Dimming is working fine for them, we have users reporting that it has been much improved, which was the reason for us to make the changes.
    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.

    Regards
    Thomas

    @Philips - Thomas
    Thank you Thomas!
    That was my idea - to give us feedback, that you have noticed our posts and ask for additional info if you need it.
    Of course I am even not demanding changes, as it looks like many users feel there is improvement in local dimming operation. For me a discussion and some explanation what had been changed and why will be nice.
    Everyone can go back to earlier version if he feels it suits his taste better. That way we are all happy.
    Thank you once again for taking your time to engage in this thread!

    I can confirm the problems mentioned by Toengel with my 9956 using activated dynamic backlight settings and activated perfect contrast.

    Moreover and worst: it seems to me that the "moving artefacts", which I almost only knew from the 9955 up to today, now are also appearing much more often and painfully more visible on the 9956.

    "moving backlight artefacts", I think this is the right term for what I want to express in my previous report here in previous page. Yes, this was very bad and very distracting in 0.99 and I downgraded mainly because of that issue.

    @Philips, please roll back what you did for Local Dimming logic in 0.99 and preserve other fixes in the next firmware built.

    I have been experimenting a bit with setting after 14.99. Lowered backlight to 50 and brightness at 52, gamma at 2. Now black levels a A LOT better, picture seem a bit darker overall may be. Can't complain about blacks performance while watching Olympic opening yesterday. Will continue observing before I decide to downgrade.

    BTW, I have a VU+ digital satellite receiver and Mac Mini so watch MKV/Bluray ISO . My experience shows that TV and bluray content needs different settings. I like vivid colors with very high contrast while watching TV (football matches, live, shows, etc) but this settings make blurays awful. Instead I like more balanced settings like in Cinema Mod. However I still not fully satisfied with the default cinema mod setting, this is why I'm asking desperately a professionally calibrated setting.
    Hi,


    I posted the settings have been calibrated by myself @ D65 Rec709

    DT-94 colorimeter, AVS HD 709 - Blu-ray, Panasonic DMP-BDT110 @HDMI 1080p

    Link settings: http://www.supportforum.philips.com/...ll=1#post36995.

    Here, the measurement protocols for example for isf night...




    Black is black with Firmware 14.99 @my 21:9 platinum.

    37pfl9606

    Yesterday evening i watched a digital channel.
    After 75 minutes the TV turned off on itself after green lines, ambilight flash and acoustic noise for 5 seconds.
    Then i tried to turn on the TV again. I did'n see the Philips Logo.
    After 15 minutes the TV turned off on itself again (without green lines, ambilight flash and acoustic noise)
    I turn on the TV again and I did'n see the Philips Logo again.

    Smart Picture: ISF Nigth

    Colour enhancement: off
    Gamma: 1
    Video contrast: 90
    Light sensor: Off

    I notice for great blacks change brightness to the minimum possible for me 40. And Dynamic backlight i change to Standart less calculations, they should by much faster so we shouldnt notice, and i put sharpness to 3 it seems it works better with PNM on. I hope Philips improve this, its acept but not good. The problem like i said is with upper layers where are subtitles and logos timers etc.
    I know its dificult to get close to reality, i give a lot importance of the color and sharpness of skin,wood,metalic etc, dark scenes and fast movements. see movies. Taken with Cyber-shot of sony, the movie you will see is in blu-ray the "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides " hope it help
