I mean I will put in a new hard drive as the old one failed so it will be a fresh install of Windows. Don't know if I should run Win7 or XP.

Actually, the HEMC update file is a single file containing firmware and motion codes. It is currently about 1.2gig in size...

New movies this week include The Hobbit: Five Armies...

I checked the HEMC and the 3rd hobbit installment is not there, nor are any of the others...

So back to manual updates.

Sony VW1100 | Stewart 156" Ultramat 150
McIntosh 151 | 3 x MC601 | 1 x MC205 | Oppo 105 | Lumagen 2041
B&W 800 / HTM 2 Diamonds | 4 x Paradigm ADP3 | 2 x Fathom F212
D-Box HEMC & 2 x SRP 330 platforms

Argh, fresh hard drive and get NTLDR missing error. I actually have 3 old 340c controllers I can fix if I can get a good lead on the motherboards. (I have 2 additional stand alone chairs that are not in my theater that I would like to get back running.)

Here is the link to where I present my modded 340C:
For all D-Box enthusiasts !

I also described how I exchanged the harddrive (twice). You need to use a tool that also copies the boot sector.

As for the motherboard, exchanging the defect/domed capacitprs helped with all 340C controllers that showed symptoms like crashing (blue screens), not booting anymore, etc. that I laid my hands on. If you want to replace the motherboard(s), the LN10000EG is an option. Like the ML-series, it is EOL, but you might find it somewhere and I can confirm that it works - and in the message above, I describe what needs to be changed (e.g. on the old board +5V are taken from a WOL-socket and since the LN10000EG doesn't have that socket, I took the +5V from an internal USB port). You still might have to exchange a few capacitors on the small daughter board for the power supply, as it is needed with most Mini-ITX motherboards ( there are a few out there, that you can connect directly to an external 12V power supply, but then you would have to re-think all the 340C-internal wiring...). Continuing to use the power supply daughter board and the existing wiring also makes sure you don't need to re-think how to supply the voltage needed for the controller board.

If you make a fresh install, you also need to make sure you have the drivers for the CrystalFonts display of the controller. I never did such a fresh install, but in my 340C, I found a registry key labeled "embedded mode". I suppose this one is needed to make sure that the controller software always claims the top position of all windows. The CrystalFonts display and the front panel buttons use the PS/2 keyboard port and this can only work if the D-Box controller application is active/the top window.

Hope this helps!

Markus

Anybody know of any new media tanks that will do simultaneous optical/coax and HDMI output and also allow that setup for outputting hi-def audio (for rips)? Best D-BOX/3D compatible solution I know of is Mede8er and I have to sacrifice the best audio if I do that.

I know I can use an HTPC or upgrade to new D-BOX hardware--not doing either any time soon (HTPC too flaky, D-BOX upgrade path not to my liking).

Might be an option I'll have to reconsider, although I hate the thought of being stuck on an old level of firmware.

Not sure if everyone is tracking, but D-Box has been greatly expanding commercially thanks to their partnership with Cinemark, their first major theatre chain partner.

I noticed that. Still seems like a bunch of theaters pull out their seats. Maybe Cinemark is getting a deal on refurbs? Quite a few large metro areas within a couple hours of me and nobody has them (the one Wehrenberg theater pulled them out probably over a year ago now). Which is kind of nuts considering the amount of releases D-BOX is coding for.

I think they need to start pushing their loungers. I don't care much for the standard D-Box theater chairs.

Kinda starting to catch up with the obvious older titles that I always wanted to see. I'm glad to see the addition of older with the new titles.

Still waiting for the iphone HEMC app. Carl promised at the ISE that they are working on it so hopefully it will happen soon.

Talking about classic movies that need coding, Léon, the Professional (1994), directed by Luc Besson, starring Jean Reno, Gary Oldman and a very young Natalie Portman, is a movie that immediately comes to my mind when this topic comes up.

Cheers!

Great movie!!! One of my all-time favorites! D-BOX should definitely code that movie!

No HEMC update this week. I guess we've been getting spoiled to expect one after another.
