Would be awesome if someone who gets the new firmware wouldn't mind sharing...Do we need to update the soundbar and the sub?

So they won't play ball

I guess I'll have to wait until it's released next week.

Updated my 7.1. I'm using shield and Samsung smart TV. Netflix on shield have major lags on the navigation screen and playback is barely watchable. Kodi on shield works fine along as the video isn't atmos and 4k. For atmos and 4k, video and audio will drop out such that it's very difficult to watch. I also noticed some cec functions are intermittent. Like switching between inputs would not shut off equipment. I think it's a good update and hopefully will improve in the near future.

That's a good update?

My setup is pretty much identical to yours, and what you had to say makes me leery to update, even if the option were available to me.

sorry guys. I got a hold of nakamichi and suggested I reboot my shield. I did that and all is good! All videos (4K + atmos), netflix, prime, and youtube are buttery smooth (short testing). Again good update.

Well, in the case are you able to pop that firmware file somewhere it can be shared?

Can someone upload the 7.1 SSE firmware update (early access) to a Google Drive and share it?


Would be greatly appreciated.

Having trouble updating firmware on my 9.2. Going from 3.1 to 3.2 FW. I've tried multiple USBs and i get a "NO FW" message. The first firmware update months ago was smooth im thinking its a hardware issue at this point.

As of now, they are still on track for firmware 3.3 to drop the latest by June-30. Of course, that ultimately depends on how their testing goes...
I have been holding off on the Atmos update on my 7.2 after seeing negative comments on here. Once the 3.3 is out will I be able to update directly to that or would I need to do it in steps and get the old one first?

Well done piece by Brian...one common observation I picked up from his interviews with the participants was the clarity of the dialog. I’ve said all along that the clarity of the mids is what separates the Nak system from all others!

AFAIK you should be able to apply 3.3 directly without futzing with the prior firmwares....

I'm using 4k version of apple tv If there anything you need tested let me know But haven't ran into any issues through with it. Watch a few itunes movies and they all worked perfectly with vision and atmos.

Hoping they release it any day now, as I've said before they released the initial 7.2 atmos update at the same time they re-released the 9.2 with the 2nd atmos update (to fix some initial problems)..... So I would expect the updated 7.2 veraion to be released very shortly as well!!

just updated my 7.1 with the 3.3 update and i haven’t been able to get atmos working. i’ve got a firestick 4k in hdmi2 on the bar. i’m playing a number of movies on vudu that have atmos and dolby vision. dolby vision works great but for atmos when i hit info it’s displaying dolby d plus on the bar. are there any settings i may need to tweak to get atmos to work correctly? does it have to do with eqs or pure direct options?

also to those requesting an upload of the 7.1 update it explicitly states in the email from nakamichi not to share it until the public release.

The only streaming service that fire stick 4k supports atmos with is Amazon prime... If you have it, turn on jack Ryan as that's the only show with atmos...

So you have exactly 1 show u can stream in atmos with the fire 4k lol welcome to the club! (I'm in it also haha)

you can “sideload” any android app on the firestick as well so even tho amazon and walmart don’t get along you can still get the vudu app on your firestick and it works fine and should be able to stream atmos.

that being said i did try jack ryan and it played dolby vision but still no atmos.

When that has happened to me in the past it was because the name of the file was screwed up because I unzipped it too many times. For example, “FW21.xxx” had a second unzipped file on my home screen which was something like “FW21 2.xxx”, so make sure the name is correct.
