This is Pio EU response to my last email:
"It's been a while since we contacted you about the problem of AV receivers
powering off while LAN was connected. It took a long time collect data
when this problem occurred, to investigate the root cause of this problem
and then to reprogram the firmware to fix this problem. The last 3 weeks
we tested a beta firmware. It needed to be so long because we wanted to
make sure that it solves this issue and this problem could occur a few
times a day or only once a week, so testing took quite long.
Since 23 jan 2012 however, firmware 0.112 is made available for service
center to fix this issue:
VERSION : 0.112 (MAIN: 1.009, SUB: 1.207, DSP: 1.003) released on Jan 23,
Fixes the following issues.
- The power turns off and on automatically when connecting to certain BDP
Philips BDP8000, etc.) with LAN (Related QI : B1067206)
I'm sorry to hear that you felt the urge to sell your VSX-1120. I wanted
to be able to offer you a solution for this issue sooner. That said, the
VSX-1121 doesn't have this (or any other known) problems, so enjoy."
and update right after that:
"I'm sorry, I made a mistake in previous e-mail. Because of differences in
internal structure, there are 2 firmware versions available to fix the
power off issue when LAN is connected:
In case of your American VSX-1020 you'll need version 0.111 Please
understand that this is not a "lower/older" version of 0.112. It's the
same firmware but for different hardware."
I´m just not sure where exactly are we supposed to get this AVR firmwares...checked both Pio EU an US web sites, nothing´s there...
I immediately replied to them, let´s see then...
As I´m out of AVR at the moment, I can´t say anything about this...though I´m curious if the guy was true about VSX-1121...I´ll see once I have it...
