    Hi all,

    I have a Panasonic TH50PZ81 and within the last two weeks prompted ota to update the firmware, which I done and from then have a intermittent issue when I switch to freeview, either get black screen or invalid dvb channel message. Re-tuning solves this and normal working is resumed except randomly this only lasts a couple of days or worse switching between freesat and back to freeview.
    Picture quality and signal strength is A1 and before update no issues.

    Is any other owner have similar issues?

    Thanks

    OTA firmware update for the PZ81?
    Is that even possible?
    And a new firmware for a set from 2008? They don't even update the sets from 2 years ago anymore...

    I just got the OTA update for my TH42PZ81 yesterday. I was amazed for such an old tv.
    I haven't noticed any problems but I mainly use freesat.
    Do you know where I can find the changelog/fix list for this update?

    Received another OTA update as well, pretty sure it was the same version as before. Perhaps it was corrupt, freesat was unaffected just the freeview issues stated. Freeview now is more stable and have not had to retune for a couple of days - touch wood.
    Thanks for the link interesting read - thought my tv was end of life, previously has the A boards replaced already.

    Can't find the change log for pz version might have to check a more recent version for update log- link below
