Philips PUS7555/12 .flac Audio file format support

Whilst I am here having posted about an Amazon Prime sound sync issue, thought I'd drop a note about another finding I have made about this TV.
Despite not being listed as a supported format, I have discovered that it is possible to play .flac format audio files on this TV both via a USB port, and via a DLNA audio server (although in the latter case if the server recognises the TV it may think it has to transcode .flac files, but if you modify the relevant profile file to tell the server (I tried it with Unversal Media Server) that the TV will happily render .flac files it seems to work fine). Only aspect I haven't got to work is to correctly display any embedded album artwork for .flac files - mp3 files work fine.

Just putting this out there in case there is anyone else like me with a large lossless music file collection, who wanted to be able to play through this device.
