I'm currently doing the firmware update for my Pioneer VSX-822k: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Home/AV-Receivers/Pioneer+Receivers/VSX-822-K?tab=firmware
Now I followed the instructions, but my front screen as been flashing UPDATE for over 30 minutes now. Anybody know how long this update is supposed to take?
If I turn off the receiver... will it restore the previous firmware version?
After 1 hr+ of waiting, I finally turned off the power. Nothing critical happened, but the update did not work.
Initially, my NTSF usb key was not recognized at all. I've used a smaller FAT key. The file was found and the update begun, but never completed.
I'll try to find my older keys and try again... but now now : now it's movie time.
I had the same issue. I even re-partitioned the 8 GB USB stick to 2GB. It didn't matter. I formatted the USB stick with fat32, fat16... Nothing worked. Always received "File not found"
Fortunately I had a 1GB stick that was formatted with DOS (yes DOS 6.2.2)
BOOM! finally the firmware update completed successfully. It seems the Pioneer "operating system" is based on an old OS. Be sure your USB stick is formatted with an older OS. Win XP should work but I haven't tested it.
This thread is over a year old. Hopefully it helps someone
tried 5 different USB sticks, FAT32, NTFS, BOOTABLE DISK, etc. nothing works. I keep getting the "FILE NOT FOUND" when trying to flash from 1.53 to 1.59 firmware on my VSX-822.
I just spent over an hour last night trying to do it. It is a bit frustrating.
