Has anyone tried flashing the LX55 with the BDP-450 4.04 cfw ?
The hardware seems identical, so it might work.

Im currently using CFW 4.03 on a BDP-440, and for some reason, only when playing BD or DVD Movies, the player likes to randomly switch off or fast forward. Has this happened to anyone else? Anyone know how to fix this??
post #1686 of 1810
I just bought a BDP-150 and im looking forward to try the cfw on this player. (I have the lx-55, but found this one very cheap in norway today)

Maybe your TV doesn't support PAL? I think ive read that somewhere on this earlier in this thread.

Looks like you use activation free FW 4.03 for BDP-440.
post #1688 of 1810
Ive used the FW from MortUK's links, and they're supposed to require activation. I have activated them myself with no problems. And the TV i have accepts PAL/NTSC.

have no clue what CFW you've downloaded from MortUK links but let's hope it's OK. So - reset to factory, re-flash CFW, factory setting, activate, check. good luck

I tried od BDP- lx-55 external hdd 2TB with 2 partitiones 1st about 500 GB fat 32, and second the rest NTFS. Works fine on player. I am interesting is any one tried 3 TB drive in two partitiones ( 1TB + 2TB NTFS)?
post #1691 of 1810
Ok, im in the process of buying the cfw from the chineese "studendts". I paid around 200$ for it, so i hope it turns out OK. A modchip would cost me around 300$, so well see. cool.gif An agent is processing the order trhough taobao at this moment.
post #1692 of 1810
Oh dear! I've bought brand new BDP-140 for $100! Why did you buy it? Are you desperate for NFS and Samba and network playback? However if you share you experience with Chinese FW (what version, network problems etc) it would be highly appreciated. Between me and - you don't need to buy from Chinese if you need NFS and Samba... smile.gif

I need audio return channel like i have on the lx-55, and want it region free on BD. Yeah, i use network playback alot, and would be nice to have the ability to use BD-iso. I dont wanne trade it for 140 or have 2 players (the 140 costs around 200-250$ over here in Norway) I know the price is high for the cfw, but a modchip would cost me nearly 300 bucks, and that would have made it region free only on BD. The fw offers nice features aswell smile.gif

I feel sorry for you man. You don't need to buy Chinese FW for this. Free CFW 4.03 without activation (or with free activation) gives you DVD region free, BD Zone free (2 clicks on the remote to choose BD Region), BD ISO support and 3D BD ISO support over USB..... and DVD-Audio support for home made disks... Try 4.03 and see yourself...

@bendikh, if you are into sacd.iso's then it may salve you that there will be Chinese CFW's released (hopefully in few days) for sacd.iso playback on Pio 140/150/440. I think you won't need to pay for that fw upgrade. Should it be the case and happen I'm looking forward to hearing your experiences on sacd.iso playback.

Didnt know it was available for the lx-55?

@bendikh, oh, you own an LX-55? Did you buy the latest CFW supporting the sacd.iso playback?

That's cool. Did you try to play sacd.iso's? What is your experience?

Well, finally got the cfw installed and activated. Man, what a process! eek.gifeek.gifeek.gifeek.gifeek.gifeek.gif

The first thing i was after, was region free on bd. For the activation to work, i had to type 6666 in the menu (not 1122). For getting it region free, i had to type 9999 on the initial setup menu. Took me some time to figure that out. The agent at yoybuy was really helpfull serving me. I will try SACD-iso and tell you how it works.

Tried downloading a sacd.iso, tried streaming it from ny NAS. Maybe you have to burn it to disc to make it work?
post #1705 of 1810
No. As I read at a relevant Chinese forum sacd.iso's should play fine from HDD (attached through USB or mayba from NAS). Afaik an SACD disc should be inserted during the sacd.iso playback.
post #1706 of 1810
Unfortunately I updated to 2.09 official before I heard of the CFW. Do you think it would be possible to use CFW 5.10 to flash and then downgrade to CFW 4.04 to get around the restrictions?

(Sorry, wrong forum - this is actually about the BDP-450)

I´ve got a question about the BDP-140.

Yesterday I´ve started to use the optical output to transfer SACDs to my computer digitally.

But I´ve discovered that the player ALWAYS uses the multichannel SACD layer when available instead of the stereo SACD layer. Is there some way to configure this? I didn´t find anything in the manual.

Or is there a way to switch between the layers (not only between CD and SACD)?

Help!

On my BDP-LX 55 I have button on remote CD/SACD, as I can see you have on yours too. When you load SACD disk, press stop then push that button and you can see on display changes from mutichannel sacd, stereo and CD normal.

Wow. That is a perfect answer: short, precise and working (I hope). Thank you very much... though I feel really stupid right now biggrin.gif

Thank you again, that was most helpful.

I hope someone can help me...

I changed my BD-140's firmware to 4.03, as discussed in this thread.

I changed my DVD region to 0, and my Blu-ray region to 1/A, but I can't manage to get DVD-A discs to work. I end up getting an error message on the front of the player saying ROOT. I've also tried switching the DVD region to 1 (I'm in North America) with no success.

I didn't have any trouble playing DVD-A discs prior to changing the firmware, and now when I attempt to revert back to 1.17, it always gives me a message that my USB stick doesn't contain any firmware files.

Can anyone help?
