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.
even with this firmware release I still do not hear the audio of this video(mkv) said in the previous firmware in this post
it's possbile to improve the function of forward and rewind of the video read from USB?(ex.: go to function)
I have since update 75-60-1 a problem, before this update I had no problem.
I have the TV (32pfl7605) connected via an HDMI ARC cable (1.4) connected to an HDMI ARC home cinema.
Now, if I turn the TV Standbye, the sound through the home cinema goes off, only after about a half minute, the sound goes on through the home cinema again, always with the sound of Ned 1 (the first chanel in the row).
Then after a half minute the home cinema is automatically disabled as it should behave.
So it likes the home cinema is so yet again fed with a signal for a half minute from the tv, thats strange!!
The TV stayed all the time in the Standbye position.
This happens about 1 in 4 times, not always.
For version 75-60-1 this was not the case.
In the latest software version 140.25 this is not yet resolved.
Is there a solution?
the strange sound behaviour is also present with the 140.25 on the 58PFL9955 (coaxial sound output)...
TV send a non-compliant dlna information to a dlna server, so twonkymedia identify it as generic and not philips tv.
please implement a better dlna support and add subtitle and fast/back forward support, please !
I update my tv 37pfl7605 to the latest SW and encounter also sound
Problems. The tv sometimes starts wthout sound. ( standby -> on ) only way to solve is switch to standby and on again and hope it starts correctly.
Please solve quickly as this is a major bug!
