I checked the 302 firmware on the CP-72 and it works fine. I went from v266 to v302. From the little testing that I've done I can say I've noticed a difference. It may not be huge, but it's a good difference! Anyway, either today or tomorrow I will be doing this on my XP30

Regards,
Jon

Here is another thanks to Sango! He helped me get the firmware update for my XP30 last night, and the update installed perfectly! I was at v268 prior to the update, and now I am at v302. I had to do some creative image burning, as the Blindwrite program just wouldn't work correctly with my rather old burner... I found a program called Magic ISO which is able to read Blindwrite images, and burn it in a format that was compatible with my burner... After 3 coasters using Blindwrite, the Magic ISO worked like a charm... The firmware cd now had the correct files, and the update ran flawlessly on my XP30! It was getting late, so I was only able to watch Gladiator, and I definitely noticed an improvement. I watched the opening of Toy Story today, and it looked great! Thanks again, talk about going above and beyond the call of duty!!

Oh, someone beat me to it. Oh well, Sango sent me the update, but I haven't applied it yet. At least now I don't have to worry if it will work or not.

I too like to thank Sango for the generousity and unselfish act he has done for sharing this firmware disc with me. It is totally way beyond call of duty. Thank you again Sango!

FYI, I have tried this firmware disc on A310 DVD player. Since A310 was built in 1998, so it has only single laser pickup therefore cannot read CD-R. Only certain brand of CD-RW will work, so I used TDK CD-RW and A310 was able to read it. Unfornately, there was no update screen shown up, so I guess this firmware disc doesn't contain firmwares of those early players, or perhaps there is a different way to update early players. Does anybody know?

BTW, my A310 has already updated once by the Panasonic service center, so its firmware version is U733. According to a Panasonic DVD players link, it is supposedly to be the latest firmware version. Can anyone verify that?

So far, we know this firmware disc will work on multiple Panny DVD players built circa 2001-2002 plus Denon 1600 and will not work on DVD recorders. What about 2003 models of Panny DVD players? Has anyone tried them yet?

hey all, I upgraded my xp30 with the upgrade Sango provided. It went smoothly and is working well!

If anyone needs the upgrade for the xp30/50, pm me. I'm more than happy to send it to you via AIM.

Anyone have the update for the RP91 or a host link?
I would rather give Sango a break from all the email.
I understand what its like, I did the same thing for members in the under $3500 pj forum when Infocus posted then pulled a firmware upgrade.
Pm for a email addy.

I have a Yamaha S-1200 (sister player to the RP-91) and would like to try the upgrade to see if it smooths out motion some (juddery motion on slower movement and on pans). I'm not sure how I can get the update though, at work we can't have messenger clients and at home I'm on a dial-up (don't laugh ), so if someone would be able to host it somewhere (or upload it to a binary newsgroup) that'd be super neat!

Another big thank you to Sango! I just upgraded my XP30 (previously at v268) with the firmware he so graciously took the time to send me. So far I don't see any real big differences but then again the player was pretty good before so big differences probably aren't where it's at with this update. In any event, it's nice to be up to date and the player certainly doesn't seem to be any worse off at v302.

A big thanks to Tyler Durden for sending me the file and Sango for walking me thru the CD burning process.

Have updated the firmware on XP30 without any problems and it works fine!

I updated the firmware on my XP50, there were no problems. It now shows version 302. DVD-Audio, DTS 96/24, DTS, DTS-ES and all other DVD's and CD's I've thrown at it still work, no problems. Now to see if there's any PQ difference.

Hi,

I want to jump on the bandwagon! If anyone can IM (MSN) me the file I can host it...at least for a while until my web host smacks me down.

My MSN IM is jjonesx86@msn.com.

Thanks,
Jeff

I just put this on a site-here is the url- there are two -rar and zip- I would try the rar first- you must have winrar download software for the first. This is a test none have been downloaded yet - it may or may not download-lets see. Sango and I did this to try to help everyone out . If it downloads properly then you must use Blindwrite 4.57 to burn the CD on your computer as per Sangos previous instructions. It is only good for about 100 DownLoads.

I would think we would have to do some double blind(lol) tests before we say this firmware actually makes the PQ of the XP-30 (268 firmware version )better. If it does, as some say, then the DVI DVD players might as well hang it up. BTW -I have nothing against DVI - I love my Bravo D1.

HoustonGuy,

Thanks for putting up the link. I just downloaded both files and everything went well with the download. The .zip file only contains the same .rar file you have on the site...wasn't sure if that is what you intended.

Thanks again (to you too Sango)!

I'm having trouble finding the burning instructions you mention below. Could someone please re-print them here? Must I use blindwrite 4.57? cd-creator won't work?

Thanks and sorry I'm late to the party.

Best,
jeff

Correct you must use Blindwrite 4.57. Blindwrite is one of the best powerful recording tools to use(Alcohol 120% is just as equal). CD-Creator is like nothing compared to Blindwrite, same goes to Nero if you want to do perfect copies (which also include protections).

Settings for Blindread:
Put a check in this checkbox: Extract subcodes(if your reader allows it) <- This is how youm make perfect copies of CDs, because of this!!

Settings for Blindwrite:
Writing mode: DAO Pw
Speed: *Lowest as possibe

*note: Don't trust what BW saids on the lowest write speed when you select it. Make sure you're unit actually support it, if not it will write at a higher speed which is the unit's actual lower, or it burns super quick (but it really doesn't burn!).
