I have a few problems with my TV set.
First it is strange that I bought it for a H/12 (on the bill) and now that I look behind it says K/12?
I think even the box said H/12, I will have a look later when I am in my storage.
Can anyone tell the difference?
Maybe I should go back to the store with it, since I saw the H/12 displayed?
I updated it several times, even with a USB stick send by Philips once(good service btw) and have now version 93 running.
My TV didn`t find the new update while on 92? But on the site I could find it.
Strange that it is on the web but that my TV doesn`t find it there?
It is very difficult to sort channels.
First I have to make all the channels favorite even to be able to sort them,without making them favorite I don`t get the option to sort them. It took a while before I figured this out since it is nowhere mentioned in the manual.
Since this goes one by one, it takes an annoying long time.
Then I can only switch channels, not put them in between. I. e. I can change channnel 40 for 5, where 40 becomes 5 and 5 becomes 40, but not put 40 before 5 while the rest moves up. So I have to change every channel from a pre written list in order to not make a mistake in my list
So to make a favorite list it takes ages because you have to move them one by one, better starting from the last, since the changed not wanted channel ends there.
Then when you by accident de-favorite a channel it will disappear from the list, only to be found in the all channel list where it will be put last. Once favorited again it will appear in your favorite list as the last one and to get it back on, for example 5, you have to switch all channels one by one to get it on the 5th position. Which will take you forever again......
Then every time I start up the TV it starts at all channels, so I have to call the channel list, call options, call select listsand select favorites.....
When I switch off and than on again I have to do that all over again, time after time.
Both should be fixed in an update since it is getting very annoying.
The remote hangs every now and then, not reacting at any button, not even on/off.
I have to go to the home screen, select TV, where it was at, press TV and then the remote works again.
Sometimes I have to pull the powercable before the remote reacts again, after a cold startup. This will make you miss a few minutes of a show. Annoying.
The rubber square on my remote gets loose on the left side, not even half a year old. (probably warranty and not the proper place here, but I thought I should mention this here too)
The back button works only in the source it is in, I can`t switch back to any other source when that was last, for example between PC and TV.
This should be fixed as well in a new update.
In all sources my display goes black for about 2 seconds, on various times after start up.
To me it looks like the TV searches for a source, but I am not sure what the reason is.
Watching something or working in PC mode it looks like the tv turns off, since the screen goes totally black.
The on screen keyboard can be better.
It would be nice to be able to move to the left and enter on the right side, it will speed up texting in stead of moving all the way back over the whole screen to get to a letter on the other side.
It will be handy as well to be able to use all blancs in the keyboard (ie between letters and numbers) as a space, now the space is situated on the bottom.
I think this can be easily changed in a new update.
Switching channels and overall speed;
Switching several channels (6>) fast make the tv think too long, sometimes it takes a second of ten, or more, before the channel appears.
By that time I start wondering if the software freezes and start trying other options, what will make it even react slower.
The response time should be worked on IMO.
The PTA 507 is made of such a rigid plastic that both ears of my pair are broken at the point of the metal pin.
So or the choice of plastic is wrong, or the hinge is a faulty design.
Either way IMO they are too expensive to break so easily and quickly.
So I`m stuck with a pair that is glued and can`t be folded anymore.
Overall I`m not too unhappy with the set but I think Philips has to tweak the software a bit better.
