I don't know why the firmware was not up to date and neither did the sales rep at Definitive?
To make sure I get the correct up grade I sent them the email from NAD with the firmware zip file.
I should add that the dealer I am using is with a new satellite store from their larger parent store in Seattle so they seem a little bit in disarray as to how all this is done. The main store will be doing the upgrade.
I still have the old T773, which is still no slouch, in the system so I guess another another week wont be that bad, but!...
I got the T785 back finally from the dealer late yesterday, so today I dove into reconfiguring the whole rack setup, pulled out the T773 got the T785 HD in and guess what no sound!
The message says Check DSP Board, I did several shutdowns and other checks,I finally stood on my head with flashlight in mouth mirror in hand and stuck a optic cable in, nothing, even the tuner and test tones don't work.
I check the firmware and this is what I believe maybe the problem.
VART: unknown ? I am not sure what this one is. But you think they screwed up putting in the firmware? I mean there should be a version for the DSP !
I have found the cable and adapter for my laptop and could try and redo the firmware myself but at this point don't know if I should try and redo their screw up if it is one.
I will give the main dealer in Seattle who did the upgrade a call tomorrow and see what they say.
