Andorid 8.0 Oreo on PHILIPS 65OLED873/12


Novice Member
Official Android 8.0 Oreo updated on my PHILIPS 65OLED873/12 now.
It's really faster. New "channel " layout is better, I have only one - youtube.
Apps I have: spotify, youtube, kodi, vlc.
That's all. All other apps I unistalled or stopped. Have separate SAT reciever and NAS Synology.
New features: DTS TruSurround, 5band audio eq, DTS auto audio levelling.

5band audio eq. I can't get the same quality audio like before with bass -2 and treble +4. Simply can't with the eq...
Ambilight with TV OFF is MUCH brighter. (Used as bias lightning when listening music)
Ambilight switches to game instead of relax every time I start TV. I have to switch back to relax every time.

And important bug/problem: I can't pair stick bt remote with the tv anymore. Tried everything, new batteries, different position, nothing...
And every 10 minutes TV has the message with "new firmware for remote please update - ok/cancel" but I can't because I can't pair the remote.
It's really annoying.
What to do? Someone has the idea?
Thank you!

Is the 873 in the same family as the 803 and 903?
I've heard doing a factory reset is probably the best way to go in order to fix bugs - same goes for updating the "wand" remote.

No, 873 oled = 65" 9002 oled, the same model, hw, everything, only bigger screen and new number.
I'll try factory reset, but after update I had to setup everything so I thought factory reset already was during update... And now again :(
It will be great to have to possibility to save audio, video settings...

Factory reset solved problem with the remote, but not with the ambilight...
Maybe next firmware...
