I picked up an open box BDP-52FD this week, hooked it up and upgraded the firmware to BDP-440_V02.19 without testing DVD-A, SACD, etc. Blu-rays play fine and look better than expected. However, the player will not recognize any other disc format, CD, DVD, etc.
1. Has anyone successfully rolled back firmware without bricking the unit?
2. If it is possible to roll back, does anyone have an older firmware, like the v02.08?
I contacted Pioneer and was told no previous firmware files are available. I would really like to check to see if it is a firmware issue before returning. I am happy with both BD and DLNA performance.
Thanks for your time,
