UPDATE (Nov 14th, 2009): Check out my new blog post about the issues with the 42PFL8404!
Supports all the new stuff
Just a few weeks ago we (my wife and I) bought ourself a present : A brand new Philips 42” LCD TV with the latest technologies. If I read the specs correctly (see below) it will support MP3, LPCM, WMA v2 – 9.2, JPEG Still picture, MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4, AVI (DivX, Div5, DX50, DXMF), H264/MPEG-4 AVC, MPEG Programme-stream PAL, WMV9/VC1. And it even supports DLNA!
Because the model is brand new I really couldn’t find any negative things about the TV and because my experience with Philips as a TV brand has always been good, so we decided to buy one.
