How do I upgrade the software if I already have the newest update and the TV cannot find software that is downloaded on the flash drive. The TV is unusable


Contact the authorized service center for Philips. Please do not play more with firmware/s with these sets; especially to Philips brand. To get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

I brought Home Theater PHILIPS HTS3565 but when I tried to play my file "AVI" it says codec is not supported but this file can be played in all of my device except PHILIPS. I have already upgraded it to the the latest software but still it doesn't work. Some of my DVD doesn't play as well


Greetings - Your home theater setup will not play xvid or mpeg 4 files. The formats supported are MPG 1 and 2, Divx, and WMV .

If you'd like to view any .AVI or .MP4 files you would have to use a computer and re-encode them to a compatible format.

You will find a list of the software and links to download (much of it free) tools HERE that you can use to convert video to a compatible format (MPG2 is always a good safe format that plays on anything).

Good Luck,

Can't communicate between Garmin Nuvi and computer? Get an error message that says some devices have been found but none contain the necessary...


You must use the newest Software (free) from Garmin.
Start with the newest program for YOUR computer BEFORE you plug in your Garmin:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.
