This is good.
I suspect that the bug fixes to Component will mean that anyone upgrading from V1.11 (or earlier) WILL need to re-calibrate Component inputs, and quite possibly also a Component display for best results. Folks upgrading from earlier than V1.11 (or V1.10) will likely ALSO need to re-calibrate HDMI inputs and display given the changes I found I had to make back when I went from V1.06 to V1.11.
I found that if the D2 gets into the multiple static-y screens state while trying to lock onto my Comcast/Motorola HD-DVR then, even after it locks in and settles down, the Video Source Adjust settings are all back to default (just like with a power cycle). I suspect what is going on here is that the video board is crashing and rebooting, and not picking up the user settings when it does so. This would also explain why I briefly get the HDCP failure message from the Comcast box (i.e., during the crash/reboot the video board isn't responding to HDCP checks).
However, I verified that a power cycle causes loss of Video Source Adjust settings even if you are using an S-video input, so at least the power-cycle part of this problem is not related to HDMI input. It might be related to my DVI display.
It may be that V1.31 is not quite up to snuff for my vintage of video board.
I've also determined that it is still the case that the scaler can not recognize the S-video user interface from my Velodyne DD-15 subwoofer. S-video pass through still works fine, but the scaler won't pick it up and convert it to HDMI. However it is very close to working. The image goes in and out, and appears to be screwing up vertical sync, as the lines of video are all legible when it briefly comes in -- just not properly positioned vertically.
Real sorry to hear this is giving you grief. You of all people deserve an nice clean upgrade.
For what it's worth is this the upgrade steps you used? Not sure of the bootstrap vs others etc, but I followed this to the letter and it was all good.
1.) Shut off the D2 using the rear power switch.
2.) Removed all HDMI inputs and output.
3.) Plugged-in the RS-232 connector.
4.) Powered up unit from rear.
5.) Used Live View to turn on unit, get current settings and save.
6.) Used remote to save current settings via setup menu.
7.) Restored Factory Defaults.
8.) Shut off unit via Front Panel.
9.) Cycled on/off rear power switch.
10.) Uploaded 129.k
11.) Turned on unit via Front Panel and after 30 sec. shut down.
12.) Turned on unit via Front Panel and loaded Factory Defaults, then loaded my saved settings.
13.) Opened Live View and loaded my saved settings and uploaded to D2.
14.) Turned of unit via Front Panel and shut down rear power.
15.) Removed Rs-232 connector and plugged-in HDMI Inputs and output.
16.) Turned on Rear Switch and powered up D2.
PS. One thing I did notice after running ARC-1 the second time was that NOT ALL SOURCES DEFAULTED TO ROOM EQ: ON for some reason. I noticed when I tried a BR through the PS3. Then when checking others it was almost random which had it on and which had it off.
Is there some input setting/audio source default that might trigger it to default or not?
In any case I strongly suggest checking all sources for EQ ON before listening after running ARC-1. I will email this to Nick as well tomorrow unless he reads it here first.
