    Thumbs up Your experiences with FW v 150.48.9 for 6, 7, 8 and 9xx7 series (2012 models)

    Hi all,

    Please share your experiences with this new SW version here in this topic. Channeling your input will make it easier for users to search and find relevant info.

    Remarks
    - Due to the global IT structure, there might be a delay in the uploading/synchronizing of new SW releases (and their release notes). Please, have a little patience if you cannot immediately see the new files on the support web pages and try 1 or 2 days later.

    - IMPORTANT: After upgrading your TV, it is necessary to perform a "cold start": after the TV is running again (after the update), shut down the TV, wait 2 minutes (till all components are shut down), unplug the TV from the mains (pull power cord) for a few minutes before starting again.

    Note: Each release contains all solutions identified in the earlier version.

    QF1EU-0.150.48.9 (Date published: 2012-10-25)
    Besides general improvements on functionality and performance, the following items were added:
    • Pointer functionality for Smart TV applications and Open Internet (*).
    • Use of preferred channel list with M7 Satellite.
    • Smooth streaming support for Microsoft Streaming video channels.
    • Display of Digital TV channels to iPad/iPod/iPhone (MyRemote App 'WiFi Smart Screen').
    • Additional aggregation views in Content Browser: extra Audio and Video view besides existing folder view.
    • New channel logo database used.

    The following items were improved:
    • Control of TV via Smartphone or Tablet (MyRemote application).
    • Zapping speed on analogue and digital channels.
    • Speed of menu’s and ‘On Screen graphics’.
    • Start-up behaviour with certain HTS devices.
    • HbbTV performance.
    • Improvements for Skype contact lists.

    The following items were solved:
    • Picture and audio problems when zapping to FR3 (France).
    • Loosing WiFi connection.
    • ‘No channel problem’ when selecting analogue channels (Russia).
    • Crashes after using FFW/FRW in streaming video.
    • ‘Files not playing’ when applying streaming video sources from Maxdome.
    • Failing CI+ authentication in case of use of CI+ cards.

    Note: (*) The pointer device, for use in Smart TV, is set by default to OFF.
    To switch it ON, you'll need to select Smart TV and push the ‘Options’ button. An ‘Options menu’ will pop up.
    The bottom row gives the possibility to put the ‘Remote control navigation’ from ‘Arrow keys’ to ‘Pointer’ and vice versa.

    IMPORTANT: Once the software upgrade is complete, you need to disconnect the power cable from the power outlet.
    Wait one or two minutes, then reconnect it. After that you can start your TV in the usual way.

    Best regards,
    Benedickte

    Benedickte,

    Thank you very much for this software update! Hope it will solve the Natural Motion problem.
    I have one question regarding the update process, and I want to be sure I'm doing the right thing this time before this FW update:
    I remember from my last update (via USB) that when the TV finished updating the new firmware version, message appears on the screen asking to disconnect the main power cable.

    According to the user manual and firmware update instruction mentioned in Philips website, I should press the "power" button on the remote control after the update completed.
    Do I need to press the power button on the remote control after the update is finished or just disconnect the main power cable as the TV asks?

    Thank you

    Any changelog? I also hope it solves the issues with perfect natural motion, if not I will have to sell this TV if the store refuse to give me a refund.

    Hi NaC.

    All you need to do when the update is done, is to disconnect the mains like stated over (2 minutes).

    @All.
    Changelog will come.

    I think the right question is not if judder should be addressed, but will Philips address it? For sure was not addressed in this firmware.

    Or perhaps it can't be addressed, is it just a limitation of their hardware? Who knows - does the problem effect the 6,7,8 models or just the 6?

    If they admit they can't address it, then my next question will be about official return policy.
    I think they should refund those asking for it. We don't get what they promote. This is what I thought I was buying, and not what I got (I likw copy/paste from Philips websites):

    Philips invented HD Natural Motion to minimise juddering effects that are visible with movie-based picture content. The award winning algorithm estimates motion in the picture and corrects juddering movements in both broadcast and recorded movie material (such as DVD and Blu-ray Disc). The resulting smooth motion reproduction and excellent sharpness take the viewing experience to a higher level..

    I can understand some other customers just don't care and decide to keep the TV.

    Hello Philips... Do you copy ?
    We seem to have some communication failure.

    Benedickte,

    Thank you for your quick reply.
    I upgraded today the new firmware in my 42pfl6007k/12 and I want to thank Philips for the effort and the hard work, however one very important thing is missing un this firmware version: Improvements in picture quality.
    After the update, I tested my TV and disappointed to find out that Philips did not focus on picture quality which was discussed in this forum by many people many times.
    When I purchased my TV, I only had one thing in my head: Picture Quality. Not 3D, not smart TV, just picture quality…!
    Can you tell me please if Natural Motion bug (which discussed a lot I this forum) is software related or hardware related?
    Does Philips know that many customers having this serious bug, desperately asking for solution?
    Please answer that question, many of us want to have Philips response on that issue.
    Thank you
