Indeed it seems they do not really have their act together: the different functions do no seem to know what the other is doing or what is going on.
For now, I am just going to wait for next update.. hopefully it solves it (though I doubt it). At the frequecy with which they have been sending out new software, it cannot be long before a new one shows up.
But if anyone else has the same issue, I hope they report it. Not just on this forum but also to philips. Maybe if enough of us report these issues, someone at philips will finally realize there is a problem.
From your complaints we realized that there might go something wrong with Net TV and software 14.96 on a 50PFL7956H. The TV of Bluevoice gives us the possibility to analyze this strange problem.
I recommended our software team to redraw this software for this model until we clarified the issue.
Thanks Mark. I hope the software division can come up with an answer soon and that no other owners of this TV-model make the same mistake of installing this version of the software.
PS: @Bluevoice, I hope you get your TV back in one piece after the Philips team completes their experiments … (or they give you a new one )
Hi Philips - Mark: this nice and all and I keep reminding me that it serves a higher cause (getting the software fixed). Now seen the fact that I can't use my product and that you're not willing to believe my findings in first place, why should I suffer the consequences of Philips's faulty software implementation? Why doesn't Philips test it on its own tv's? Should the tv's of your clients be used as test devices?

I'm really mad about it. I only updated to the new 14.96 software because I hoped it would solve the reset / reboot / crash problem I have with this tv when I use it together with the HTS8562/12 (which, BTW it doesn't solve):
This is another case of an issue that was long not acknowledged by Philips. I reported this issue back in October 2011, this is 5 months ago, and I still kept asking about a resolution, still nothing. At this very moment, there is still no solution for it...
Philips doesn't care about it customers it seems.
Same problem on 42PFL7605C/08
Also my 42PFL7605C/08 TV show this message "To complete NetTV sign-in, please switch your TV set off and on again", so I have read the thread hoping to found a solution but it seems that the only solution is to contact the service helpdesk to repair the TV.
I agreed that it is really disappointing to see that Philips can't solve these problems with firmware. I have just send an email to email@example.com and I hope to receive some good news from them.
The Network parameters are good. Some time after clearing "NetTV cache", Net TV loading first page and hangs some other time a white screen hangs.
The serial number is: VN1D1114001009
The firmware is: Q5553-0.140.46.0
The mac address is: 18:8e:d5:21:65:db
Hope to receive soon informations from the support.
It seems the software team did not yet redraw this faulty software: it can still be downloaded as the latest SW update for 50PFL7956H, meaning more people run the risk of loosing their NETTV connectivity. Is the software team taking any action? Or did they not follow your recommendation?

This is nice, except I still don't have my TV back... It seems Philips does nothing to speed up things.

Philips deliver the damn part, I want my tv back!!!
Got my TV back last Friday. I can confirm that NetTV now also works on the Philips Cinema Gold on firmware 14.96. Seems that, as JustMe reported, the issue has been resolved on the server side.
It's nice that Philips shares this info with us and communicates with its clients saying the issue has been resolved (NOT!).
same TV, same problem, still not solved
Hi Philips - Hi Stefano,

I have to report this error too. Initially, the message was "philips server not found" with no changes at the router or internet provider (I work at the internet provider). Internet access is just fine through the same home network.
Today, the message switched to "To-complete-NetTV-sign-in-please-switch-your-TV-set-off-and-on-again". I cleared the Apps Cache, then I got to the initial welcome page of Net TV. I got the registering e-mail, activated on the Philips portal, the TV said thank you for activating. Then it fails to load Net Tv again.
The TV is 40PFL6606H/12 with the latest firmware 000.014.096.000.
Philips, I would expect this to be resolved quickly, as I am using Net TV on a daily basis. Please follow up on this as soon as possible.
And yes, I find the information on this forum that "all services are up and running" totally misleading. Is it just a ping test to the server? It shows as completely inaccurate and usefull.
Hello to the Philips team,
I have started to experience the same problem only yesterday, although I have installed 0.14.96.0 4 days ago.
I own 46PFL9706 TV with mac address: 5C:33:8E:82:AB:CC.
Although I have rebooted several times the TV, I keep getting this annoying message which asks to restart the TV in order to complete NET TV sign...
I paid so much money for a "state of the art" Philips TV & I cannot accept this to happen.
Please advise what to do to have this resolved immediately.
