I tried to perform the downgrade, but wasn’t able to. maybe if someone succeeds, can share the technique.Someone on another thread linked to a site with downgrade firmware, looks like an easy job:
! Do NOT upgrade your TV to TPM211EA_001.001.233.022 ! After performing the update to my 55OLED936 to TPM211EA_001.001.233.022 firmware I've noticed that the ambilight now stays on,on white whenever a black scene is present. It's so annoying that I'm returning the TV and replacing it with a new...www.avforums.com
Waiting for your move Philips. If nothing changes back, who knows, maybe one should try to downgrade?
For now I turned off autoupdate, who knows what else will get "improved"
Its not yet released for Internet upgrade/deployed to the servers (the file was sent by Philips to one of forum members and he kindly shared it having had installed and checked it on his TV set). But it looks stable (enjoying it for several hours already).Nice! Is the new firmware already released?
Ok looks good. Do you have a download link?Its not yet released for Internet upgrade/deployed to the servers (the file was sent to one this forum members and he kindly shared it having had installed and checked it on his TV set). But it looks stable (enjoying it for several hours already).
I would support that too, and alternatively I would propose to Philips just to add "custom mode" to the existing set of modes ("standard", "natural", "vivid", etc.) with the following settings:Is anyone else interested in pursuing Philips to implement a menu option to have Ambilight ON persistently or OFF during blank/black/dark screen moments for Follow Video mode? I am.
Agree with that but I think they gonna say; you can choose option "game". But that mode responds too fast in my opinion.So we're back to the factory fit FW state on the 65OLED936/12 or the post update state from FW TPM191E_R.101.002.098.000 on the 65OLED935/12. Better, I guess, but still not great IMHO. The original behaviour on the 65OLED935/12 was ALL Ambilight Follow Video modes turned completely off when the panel was blank/black/dark, which gave you a great sense of immersion when watching content in the dark.
Surely the point of Ambilight Lounge Light mode is so you can have Ambilight ON ALL THE TIME if that is your preference...

FYI: two my posts (sent 13 and 7 days ago) on the Philips forum thread which you had started, still have status "Pending review"...
Just had same reply as Daniel Ewan from Philips help for 77OLED806/12 but with
"We can not confirm, deny or provide the TPM211EA_R.001.002.092.000 Software as we do not have any further information about it and it is not yet confirmed if it will be released or when if it will.
We do not recommend installing that Software from avforum.com as it is not an official Software release provided from us and can not guarantee the functionality or that it will not damage your Tv"
White light stays on in game mode for me so I have asked them to reopen the helpdesk incident and reply ASAP.
Thank you very much for addressing Ambilight issue to Philips once again. I was going to upvote your post but the tread on Philips forum is not accessible (yet?).I also created a post on the Philips forum here: https://tv-sound-monitors.philips.c...reen-moments-for-ambilight-follow-video-modes on Sunday which still says "Pending Review".
If Philips won't approve it, here it is. Its content reads as follows:
WHAT??? Intentional?? Are they at Philips wacky???we would like to inform you that the changes you are experiencing on your Ambilight features are intentional
Due to the high demand of requests and complains about the Ambilight staying Off during dark/black scenes these changes have been applied to the Ambilight Features
This is normal behavior on your Tv and it is not considered an issue but an improvement
I also created a post on the Philips forum here: https://tv-sound-monitors.philips.c...reen-moments-for-ambilight-follow-video-modes on Sunday which still says "Pending Review".
Guys, thanks once again for addressing Ambilight issue to Philips.They have reopened my incident
Hey, yeah that confused me for ages too. The way I found to do this is to visit an existing post, scroll to the bottom of the page and the left blue button should say, "Ask the forum", click that and you can create your own new post. You can use @maik096's original to create your own: https://tv-sound-monitors.philips.c...123322-the-behaviour-of-the-ambilight-changed and also upvote any relevant existing posts on the Philips Forum..Guys, thanks once again for addressing Ambilight issue to Philips.
I think we can't leave it as it is presented by very confusing statement of Philips Support that permanent white light is "intentional behavior" (which actually makes Ambilight practically unusable for me).
I also opened a case by "sending e-mail" to Philips support from the site.
I was also going to start a new forum topic on Philips AV Form about this issue but did not manage to find any button or menu option for that... How did you do this?
