and just for the record i did in fact render my TV completely inoperable at one point during the process. the firmware upgrading materials supplied by olevia online are somewhat incomplete to say the least, and if you try to improvise by using just any old "PL-2303 USB-to-Serial Bridge Controller" you are asking for trouble. i downloaded an old one (hey- the name matched, what could go wrong?) and OF COURSE the firmware update tool bluescreened just AFTER the "erase" stage, thereby turning my TV into a brick the night before the super bowl.
fortunately a very helpful post elsewhere on this forum indicated a valid PL-2303 driver is included in the 537H firmware download currently located athttp://188.8.131.52/jsp/firmware/d...11_061121B.zip
so i was able to resurrect the TV and save my marriage after all.
[ok, if you really want the full story, i actually bricked it *again* immediately after resurrecting it by forgetting to quit the updater tool and disconnect the USB cable before hibernating the laptop i was using. but after *three* tries i did get things completely back to normal. i include all this for your amusement only; sort of a "what not to do" for olevia firmware updates...]
