Updating our Philips BDP5x00 BlueRay/DVD player, Philips PFL767x 3D TV and MyRemote apps for Android & iOS

Some tips on the links of the Philips site above:

  1. Replace the 42 in the URLs with the screen size of your TV to get the download specifically for your TV.

Is it coincidence, or not that these 3 got updates last week?
