So I was able to successfully do my first firmware upgrade to 1.04! After messing with my network settings for a long while to be able to see the Ref. 70 (had to add its MAC address into my filter list, duh!) the upgrade went fairly smoothly. After several reboots (automatically) I was back up and running. Unfortunately, every setting known to man was reverted back to the factory defaults
Does anyone know if there is a way to save those settings somehow? I sure don't look forward to setting levels, distances, input names, resolutions, ect. every time a firmware update comes out.
By the way, here is an update from B&K regarding my issues with SACDs and DSD playback...
"We were able to get SACD to work with your OPPO player. We found an error with our default DSD EDID settings. Once we plugged in the correct numbers for use with DSD over HDMI, all worked as expected?? FYI, we currently control the SACD/DSD by our BKC-DIP back door debug commands.
The OPPO must have its SACD over HDMI set to DSD under setup page 3?.
We still have a few user interface issues with how SACD (DSD) it is to be selected. Ideally we should set the SACD EDID capability on our side, then when the AVI info frame from the player changes we will would automatically select SACD on the OPPO player. Currently we manually configure our Audio EDID which then requires the OPPO to select SACD manually again under Setup Pg 3 again.... to hear the SACD audio.
We are in the process of another Rev for the REF70, it will fix a few PnP pink video color mapping issues and add support for 1080P 24 Hz monitor resolution. We will attempt to put in a way to select SACD, but it might not get finished until we get to the next Rev sometime next month. The reason for the delay is that we need to test the code with our current list of Blu-Ray and HDMI DVD players (about 15 and growing). But, we will get to the SACD play back, we just need to get the interface to not break our PnP with other players."
