How to update your Philips Saphi Smart TV software via USB [2018]


To ensure an optimal experience with
your Philips TV it is advisable to check for software updates regularly. In order
to do a software update via USB, you will need an empty USB flash drive which is
FAT formatted and a computer which is connected to the internet via a
broadband connection. Insert the USB flash drive into one of the USB ports on
the side of your TV. Press [Settings] on your remote control, select [All settings],
[Update software] and [Search for updates]. Select [USB], [Identify the TV],
[Ok] and [Start now]. Finally select [Start] and then [Done]. Insert the USB flash drive
into one of the USB ports of your computer. In the flash drive locate the
file ‘update.html’ and double click it. After that, click on the [Send ID] button.
If a new software version is available, proceed to download the zip file. In case
your TV’s software is already up to date, you will see a message announcing that
there is no software available. Before downloading the file you will need to
accept the User License Agreement. The download process may take a while. After
downloading the software file, unzip it and copy the file with the ‘.UPG’
extension onto the USB flash drive. Place the file straight in the root directory,
not inside of any folder. Insert the flash drive into the TV USB port again.
The update will start automatically and it may take a few minutes. When prompted press [Ok] to restart now.
The TV will switch itself off for about 10 seconds and then back on again. Please wait until this process is completed.
