    As far as I know, the other diffs are as follows :-
    9617 has 4 scarts (2 RGB enabled), 9527 has 3
    They have different menu systems, with certain option diffferences.
    Auto format - works on 9617, questionable on 9527 (read some other recent threads on this subject).
    From the samples I've seen - TO DATE anyway, the 9617 has a Panasonic tube, whilst the 9527 has an LG/Philips tube (and in my opinion - again judging from the samples I've seen) is much the worse for it.
    On a technical note, the 9617 has an MG3.2E chassis and the 9527 has an EM5E chassis. As to what difference that makes, Zacabeb can tell you more than I can.
    Have I missed anything guys??

    In theory, there should be no difference picture wise between the two, in fact the other Philips sets I've seen recently that have had the LG/Philips tube were great.
    I personally favour the latest LG/Philips tube when its set up properly. (it has slightly less curvature in the corners than the Panasonic anyway).
    But the fact remains that 4 out of 5 9527s I've seen in the last week (in Leics, Derby and Milton Keynes, FYI) were soft, picture wise compared to the 9617, and in fact to all of the other Philips 32" sets on display.
    All you've got to do is switch to teletext (the more white text on display, the better). It tells you alot about the tubes convergence and focus.
