Casting Resurrect Thread!
I've run into kind of an odd situation. I recently got a new receiver and blu-ray player, both of which updated themselves with new firmware shortly after I set them up. This got me thinking, and I realized I'd never updated the firmware on my TV. I haven't really had any problems with it but I figured usually having the latest firmware is for the best, just to squash any obscure bugs that might pop up or any weird possibly incompatibilities (Like HDMI handshake issues and such). I looked into it and couldn't find any problems caused by newer firmware so I figured I'd try to update my TV.
The instructions for doing the firmware update aren't terribly well written but I was able to (I thought) figure out how to to do it though it was a bit awkward to try to do by myself (unplugging while holding down buttons on the TV with a USB drive plugged in). Anyway, after trying a bunch of times and using a couple of different USB drives I couldn't ever seem to get it to update.
Has anyone else tried to update one of these TV's? Is there some odd trick to it I'm missing entirely? Is it possible I need to use a different procedure since my TV is running firmware a few "generations" old (I think it is at least...).
It's not a huge deal, as I said so far I haven't had any issues, but I'd like to have the best running TV I can, and for it to continue to do so with newer equipment etc, so I thought I'd see if anyone else had had any luck with such things.
