Still no EPG for Greece (either DVB-T or from NetTV).
It seems that the firmware is binary exactly the same as the firmware of the 8000 series.

Looks like the only need the extra time to test it on the 7000 series.
With a reaction of Philips we know for sure.
in the changelog says:
Introduction of the new Net TV Service Portal 2.5. (Only applicable to Net TV models.....
I went in the net tv menu but I have not seen differences with the previous firmware verison,where is the difference?
Portal is not live yet, read this.

Unfortunately videofiles larger than 4 GB still don't play. Since v0.140.23.0 the aspect ratio of videofiles are correct (before that onlyvertically streched images for 2.35:1 videofiles) but files bigger than 4 GB don't work anymore. Before firmware v0.140.23.0 files bigger than 4 GB played without problems. Please fix this.
After the update my 42PFL7655h/12 gives sound problems
The sound on the TV stops for about 5 seconds. This happens on every channel. Also when i am playing on my Wii. It happens every 1/2 to 1 hour.
Before the update i never had this problem.
The same is happening with my 32PFL7605 since I had the last update. This sound problem occurs independently of the source. Is this a know problem to Philips? When a new update will be available to fix this bug?
@Emanuel, if you do the steps I mentioned that should solve your problem, but you will only have standard sound and picture ( I havent tried changing the settings) as for the last week I havent had the sound problem since.
Hopefully there will be a new revision of the firmware out before christmas
Good's and Bad's with 32PFL7605
Hello Phili lovers,
here I will be short after I have written a lot on a previous web page on this topic and lost it, and I have lost my ideas there.
I am a first time user of a Philips TV and with all the bad's i have noticed it still leading High with AmbiLight,Net TV and the rest you like
I have bought this TV 3 weeks ago and I manage to discover next:
1. The TV cannot be started from numeric buttons(direct number keypad) like all the other normal TV's.. it is a huge disappointment . for example you want to start straight on channel 7 , please consider it for the next FW.
I think maybe the " OK" button , which is the first at hand , would be nice and neat to start up the TV also, now it is dead .
2. I get the Philips logo every time I start TV with a 7 seconds booting, are you serious about this way of starting up? before this update this was only happening when switching off totally.
3. I am still confused with the clock settings and EPG , whatever I set, I am off with one or two hours + or -
4. Menu's are sometimes slow and with a lag. Not before the update
5.. How can I reboot my tv set without loosing settings and channels. Only for refreshing menu's and software...
6. where to use Picture Shift? no clear mention about it.
Remote Control: the best!..
some reviews I read on the net before I have bought my TV said it is bulky and hard to feel.. no way!
easiest to learn in complete blindness...
could be that channel + and - instead of Menu and right click menu..., but that is how I felt to like it .
Please make a better FW to keep your gold line of products.
All the best dear Philips owners and Inventors of....
Happy New Year !!!
Sorry to bump this old thread but the problem above still exists, unfortunately. Tested on my 37PFL7605 and my 42PFL7655. Please fix this because it greatly reduces the use of the build-in mediaplayer.
