    Technical feedback for FW 150.82 - for 6/7/8/9000 Series - 2012

    Hi all.

    The new FW is now live. This thread is for technical feedback only. For other discussions please post in the discussion thread.

    Note: All posts need to be approved in this thread, meaning it will not be visable before this is done. No need to repost if not come live.



    IMPORTANT: After upgrading your TV, it is necessary to perform a "cold start". This means that, after the TV is running again (after the update), shut down the TV, wait 1 minute (till all components are shut down), and unplug the TV from the mains (pull power cord) for 2 minutes before starting again.

    TV Model: 47PFL6907T
    Previous Firmware: 150.48

    Negative:
    - Dynamic Backlight Flicker (also present in previous firmware).
    - HDNM (does not seem to work. picture distorts - was same in previous firmware)
    - Menu seems very slow (was the same in previous firware)
    - USB 3.0 Flash Memory Stick not working (same problem in previous firmware) (tv says USB detected - reading files, however, this message does not go away. When you go into USB source, it says no USB device detected.

    I only received my TV yesterday and am considering sending it back. The picture quality is fantastic, however, the backlight flicker and HDNM issues are concerning.

    Hello,

    Update done, here are my feedbacks

    TV Model: 47PFL6907
    Previous Firmware: 133.X dowgrade with philips support because of noise when chanel change

    Positive:
    + No sound when change channel
    + Faster navigation in the menu
    + No probleme with Dynamic Backlight flicker


    Negative:
    - HDNM issue always persists (please focus on this bug for next update) If it's an hardware issue, Philips have to fix it
    - Social TV doesn't work on smart Tv
    - Menu are very very old-fashioned, please look at Samsung UI

    Negative:
    - Dynamic Backlight Flicker (disappears with the setting off)

    but now already with exchanged 2nd Phil. 47PFL6007K/12 ! **

    + Found new device popup seems gone (by the way, seems that after downgrading back to 150.048.14 its gone there to..not tested thorough!)

    Previous Firmware: 150.48

    Negative:
    - Remote still acts up, now the led is blinking when i press buttons but nothing happens
    - Graphical glitch in options (icons not aligned)
    - TV is doing something at nights, it switches on several times every night (WTF?!?). HDD's spin up, last night it switched on 6am for 5min and then again 6:13am for 2min. This is ABSURD! What kind of a feature is this?
