I just installed the latest firmware via ethernet download and I'm having issues with the Eagles Farewell Tour I HD DVD version.


It seems that when I'm accessing the pop-up menu, scrolling through the chapters, some of the chapter numbers are not shown but the chapter names are still there. The whole menu systems operates very flaky on this disc.


I don't recall this happening on my older firmware so I guess I'd like to downgrade to see if the trouble disappears.

Are there any links anywhere to download previous versions of the firmware for this fine unit?


I know I could try to read all 200 and some odd posts in this thread but it would take a quite a while.

Sounds kind of similar to the Nine Inch Nails HD DVD. It worked on the older firmware, with the newest one the whole player freezes as soon as the NIN logo appears.

I can't understand how they can do anything to mess up HD DVD playback since there are no new releases. Hopefully they fix it next update. Overall I am happy with this as a blu-ray player and it does well with most hd dvds I have tried.

Oh, they messed it up on several levels alright. Can't watch most Paramount AVC-encoded files at 24fps without frickin' flickering.

Thanks for the confirmation that this latest firmware has its problems too.


Now how about an answer on where the previous firmware links may be?

Well, the worse part is all these problems seem to be regressions in the code.


Also, I'd give you a location if I knew of such an archive.

I have a copy of 1.2 in 2 files (WinZip 11.2).


Does anyone have access to an FTP server, where I can e-mail them the firmware?

1.3 is the latest one available via the ethernet download. There is a 1.4 that is only available as a download from their site that you have to burn yourself. You may want to try going up to 1.4 to see if that fixes your menu issue before going back down. I had a disc that wouldn't display the menu at all with 1.3 and upgrading to 1.4 fixed it for me.

The reposts of this firmware are no longer up at the latest links in this thread--anybody who got those, could you possibly re-upload them somewhere?
