Just so people know the Play Double Packs come with just one power supply unit (PSU) which has three inputs so you can plug three play bars into the one PSU. The Extension Kit has one Play Bar and no PSU. Not a problem unless you want to put the play bars in separate rooms or a long way from each other.

BTW Phillips don't sell separate PSU's separately for these.

Heat added. Good price. I would have bought at this price but with BF around the corner I’m going to wait and see what’s to offer then.
These should be great with the new HDMI Hue kit coming out. But like poster above, think I'll wait.

Very interesting re the HDMI sync box. First time I’ve heard of this. Hopefully it works well like the rest of the hue stuff

Thanks for the info. I didn't realise there was a limit of 3 play bars into one PSU. I think that would be fine for most people, with TV's on stands or angled on a wall...but mine is relatively flat, and would have liked a play bar in each direction (ie up, down, left right). Without buying another full kit (the double pack with psu), that doesn't seem possible. Still, I'll look forward to the HDMI kit and get the 3 at some point.

Does anyone know the 'spread' of these? For example, if my TV was 65", would one on each side be enough to light up the entirety of the side lenghts of the TV?

It’s not cheap, about $200 over on the other side, our price to be announced.

It will only sync what’s played through external devices connected via the box so set-top box/smart HDMI sticks/games console etc.

What it won’t sync is anything you watch directly from TV such as broadcast TV or built in apps

Wonder how the hue sync box works with an AVR.

Also looks like it won't support Dolby Vision pass-through and is HDMI 2.0a only with no support for eARC, ALLM or other HDMI 2.1 features. Pretty much the worst time Philips could have launched such a product - late, over-expensive and out of date on arrival.

You're probably better off buying a lightstrip + extension and wrapping it around the edge of the TV or just behind.

Yes, you might be right. Any advantage to these as opposed to the strips?

Just been reading up on this.

Not good.

Nearly everything is HDR these days, and seemingly the box won't sync with this content (though it will pass it through)

Well, that sucks.

For me personally, it means effectively no PS4 (or PS5) support, nor the best Netflix content. As well as 4K movies via my Nvidia Shield.

That limitation had effectively removed everything I watch, except my Sky Q.

Silly from Philips.

Edit: I need to read up more on this. A few sites saying different things.

I guess the only advantage is these can be set to two different colours simultaneously, whereas the strip can only be one colour all the way around.

May I ask how you use the shield in your setup to watch 4k movies on your TV? Are they coming from a home server or do you just use that for streaming? If so why a shield? I bought the tablet and it was terrible so never bothered with the shield TV.

Sure.

I watch 4K content on my Shield two ways.

1. Via Netflix
2. Via Plex

Plex is connected to my computer where the Plex server runs. I then run the 4K content via my home network.

I chose the shield for its power, video output and sound output.

I wanted something that wouldn't struggle to run 4K content.

Previously I'd use Plex via my last 2 Samsung TV's, this wasn't ideal with stuttering and drop outs. Despite the network being exactly the same, the Shield doest not suffer this at all.

I also wanted something that could output HDR.

Regarding sound, I wanted something that would support all the latest formats. In particular Dolby Atmos to match my speaker set up. The Shield supports everything I've thrown at it. My Whereas for example my TV only supports DTS or DD.

Finally, not important to some, but I wanted the Shield as a retro gaming machine - I have all my emulators set up on it, and can use a number of different controllers
