Oh man I am not feeling good...
I just tried to do the update with my HD-A2 and never got anything more than "S/PDIF Update..." so after 10 minutes I powered off and back on. When I checked the DSP version it said "????.????." or something close to that. My heart sunk, my throat swelled, and blood rushed to my head! There was no sound from any source. I just got this thing today already I funked it up!
On the A-2 I had it set Digital Out SPDIF to Bitstream and Digital Out HDMI to Auto.
After realizing the version was ???? I powered off and removed power completely. When it came back on it would play analog audio from Game source and I thought it had reset, but it still does not have audio from anything digital. Can anyone please help me? I have tried again with HD-a2 set to PCM and no change. Is there a way to do a factory reset? Thanks in advance.
Why can't I leave well enough alone?
I held down VCR/DVR and pressed Standby until it said "Clear" and shut off. I removed power completely, then restored and powered on. Crossing my fingers, I think everything is fine now, but I still have the old firmware.
