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

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/06/01

Since the auto-update nor manual update feature of Philips devices over the internet never seems to work:

Today is Philips firmware using USB stick and app update time (:

One bummer is that the “firmware installation instructions” do not mention that you have to start with a cold boot one time before updating the devices. If you don’t, then the devices (especially the TV’s) do not recognize there is an update available.

So: always start with cutting the power (either by switch or by plugging the cable) then enabling power again. You only need to do this once before plugging in a USB stick with the update.

Another bummer there is that Philips does not publish direct links on their site either, so you have to browse through pages, select languages, then download the stuff. But the actual files are still static.

So below are the URLs of the pages and download links I used.

Note the links have been static, even over firmware versions.

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.
  2. Replace DEU or ENG in the URLs with your own language abbreviation to try getting it in your language.
    This is the list of language codes and languages that Philips uses:

    AEN English (US)
    ENG English
    JPN Japanese
    BUL Bulgarian
    POR Portuguese
    HEB Hebrew
    ELL Greek Modern
    VIE Vietnamese
    RUS Russian
    ARA Arabic
    DEU German
    SLK Slovak
    NOR Norwegian
    LSP Spanish (Latin)
    NLD Dutch
    CES Czech
    ESP Spanish
    ZHS Chinese Simplified
    LAV Latvian
    LIT Lithuanian
    KOR Korean
    BRP Portuguese (Brazil)
    DAN Danish
    SLV Slovenian
    KAZ Kazakh
    POL Polish
    ASP Spanish (Argentina)
    THA Thai
    CFR French (Canada)
    MSA Malay
    UKR Ukrainian
    GLA Gaelic
    SRP Serbian
    RON Romanian
    TZH Taiwanese
    ITA Italian
    FIN Finnish
    ZHT Chinese Traditional
    TUR Turkish
    FRA French
    HRV Croatian
