BD590 won't play bluray & also won't downgrade - help?  

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My BD590 said "upgrade available" so I allowed it to network-upgrade to what turns out to be BD8.97.423 / H90378 / H09LGN.
Now it won't play BluRay discs at all - every one that goes in results in a disc error.

I have downloaded alternate firmware and tried to downgrade but the player is not recognizing the downgrade. Can someone give a hint what I'm doing wrong? Here's what I've tried:

1. Downloaded a .ROM.zip file which unzipped to a .ROM folder with .ROM-00 and .ROM-01 files inside
2. I tried putting the folder (with two files inside) onto a flash drive and inserted into system. The system did not say anything about upgrading.
3. So I tried taking the two files out of the folder and putting the two individual files in home directory of the flash drive. Same result.
4. Then I tried putting the two individual files into the home directory of a CDROM and inserting that. Same result.
5. I unplugged and plugged back in.
6. I used the "initialize" command on the setup screen.
7. Still same results.

BTW I am using an iMac to write to the Flash and also to burn the CDROM. Don't see why that would make a difference but just in case.

Any clues on how to make the player recognize the downgrade image?
Also: does anyone else have experience with this new .423 image? I tried 4 bluray discs on it and all ejected without reading. It actually works fine for Netflix streaming and for DVD but not for Bluray at all.

help?!
thanks

Best idea since most of the guys are subscribed to that thread and won't even see this one. Thanks.
