Pioneer and Yamaha receivers were not able to get multi-channel SACD DSD working with HDMI 1; some Onkyo and Integra users could not get anything through HDMI 1.
The new firmware should allow Pioneer and Yamaha receivers to do stereo/multi-channel SACD DSD; some Onkyo and Integra users to at least get stereo SACD DSD.
If you are using the player's ability to do SACD DSD to PCM decoding, then there is no performance difference in the new firmware in this regard.
I cannot connect via wireless. Ran connection test to be sure. Nflix works fine, so it's on the net. When I go to FW update and choose the third option, I get the same connection error it's been giving since day one. USB adapter connected to extension cable.
Release date: December 17, 2010
Category: Latest Official Release
Main Version: BDP9x-33-1216
Loader Version: CN0500
Sub Version: MCU93-06-1008
1. HDMI compatibility improvements.
2. Compatibility fix for multi-channel SACD playback over HDMI in DSD mode.
3. General disc compatibility improvement based on recent and upcoming Blu-ray releases as well as user-submitted disc samples.
The release notes are incredibly sparse, but believe me, the changes are very dramatic and will greatly improve the performance and compatibility of the player in most configurations.
The Firmware also adds media compatibility for APE, as well as fixes some issues related to FLAC media playback over USB and eSATA (have not tried DLNA yet).
This Firmware can be upgraded through Network (Ethernet only, WiFi does not work with the current 21-1108 Firmware), CD, and USB methods.
The BDP-93 User's Manual is also available.
What about the HDMI handshaking issues via HDMI 1? Going through all the stuff in this thread, the only thing that sticks out as something that was a universal pre-release issue (not limited to a specific receiver, or not some obscure file format via DLNA), seemed to be lots of handshaking issues with HDMI 1. Is that fixed with this update?
If so, Oppo is really on the right track.
