    Have just joined this forum after reading the many threads regards the Philips 32PF9986, I bought mine last Wednesday and after using the recomended settings I checked out the firmware version, slightly dissapointed that its 2.1.

    I e-mailed Philips asking for an upgrade, their response was to go back to my dealer, unfortunately my dealer is not a Philips dealer, he had this one set as a demo which I promply bought.

    My question is has anyone had the Philips 32PF9986 firmware upgraded, if so how did they go about it.

    Great Forum.

    Don't bother. v2.1 is perfectly alright. Upgrade could take weeks and you will notice nothing different.

    So relax. Enjoy.

    The TV would have to go back to Philips Engineering (UK) They would keep it for weeks, upgrade your Firmware, whilst scratching their heads as to why anybody would want to upgrade from 2.1 to 2.3.

    Definately not worth it.
