Why is it ? That everytime i try and run the update and then update my network NMT apps firmware says it doesn't match the firmware of my pch-200 ? This update doesn't work via ethernet or USB !!!!
This thing (C-200) has a RIDICULOUS amount of set-up ! Can someone tell me when a Plug-n-Play model will become available with the features of the C-200 ? This is over my head Angry

Cause every time you fail to upgrade the NMT applications, download them from the popcornhour website... put them on a USB stick and upgrade the NMT applications from that stick...


PCH-A100/A210/C200/A400 500GB EXT3 HDD<-->HDMIv1.3<-->Onkyo TX-NR1010<-->HDMIv1.3<-->Panasonic TX-P46S10 + 6 Bowers & Wilkins speakers.
10 NTFS 2TB USB drives on 3 hubs attached to the A400, 2 Seagate blackarmour NAS 3TB, 2 Seagate Central NAS 4TB.


The inability to setup and configure the NMT should not be disguised as a defect of the box...

And now instead of it displaying the file name it just says (play video.jsp?id=51&ext=.avi all this after installing those stupid apps that did nothing but screw everyting up. Stutters like no other.Big Mistake DO NOT INSTALL ANY APPS ESPECIALLY "YOUTUBE" oh and BTW that was the very lastest updated Youtube app that came out today or yesterday.How do I get file names back in the display I don't care about apps anymore if it plays my files I'll be happy with that.

Now how do you suppose anyone can make heads or tails of your problem and how to solve it if you continue to assume the system is at fault, first accept the fact that it does work correctly for all other users, then provide the facts on how you setup your C200 and see if anyone can help you in getting your setup in order.

first thing I would do is reset the configuration to factory default, then insert a USB stick with the latest firmware and NMT applications, then configure the C200 to match your audio, video and network equipment.

When in doubt read the WiKi.... link at the top of each page of this forum.

Oh yeah dont forget this is a user forum and we all dont work for PCH but are willing to help each other if we can. Ranting and taking your own experience for a fact will not get you anywhere...

But on c-200 I've got only sound and black screen, same like before an update. Can someone finally tell me if this update does anything to play full side-by-side MKVs?

Thanks.

I dont think full SBS is allowed only supports half SBS


Then what is the point? half SBS worked fine even before a firmware update.

The point is (I think), the firmware makes 3D MKV support "official" following Matroska standards for use of it's container.

The Sigma 8643 cannot display 1080p 3D video streams.

It also signals your tv to go into 3d mode.

Yep I think that's the change in this firmware. By auto-switching it makes it the first 3D player apparently. It would play before but you had to switch your TV into 3D mode, now it should autochange back and forth.

More reassuring for me is to see how close the guys at Syabas are getting with Matroska. With Haali also involved in the development its quite a powerful team now working on the NMT MKV side of things.

I also am happy to see/hear this part. No guesses and the right people to ask.

That's funny? I hadnt tried to play 3D before this firmware update, but I have to manually switch my TV to 3D mode with the new update anyway. Mine doesnt auto-switch :-( I love the 3D though, and both my TV and the C-200 say that the signal is 1080P , but i guess that means overall and not for each eye

How does it signal? CEC?

If CEC is functional, can we have automatic input switching and amplifier volume control from the PCH remote, please?

If it doesnt autoswitch it is because you have either more than one '.' in the filename or the filename does not follow the instructions in the changelog and have 3DSBS or 3DTAB at then end.

Here's two test files:

Its not cec its a flag that is sent over plain hdmi signal line. If it was CEC that would be horrible. AS no tv does CEC the same lol.

This firmware upgrade caused some headaches for me!

1. Upgraded f/w, rebooted and ran nmj. Scan stopped at 50% on one movie and would not continue. Deleted that movie and tried again - same result.

2. Decided to go back to directory view (pressing red button) and started watching film (720p mkv file). No problems there but remote was now totally inoperative.

3. Rebooted C200 and continued to watch film OK with remote working.

4. Deleted and reinstalled nmj but scan still hung at 50%. Went back to directory view

5. Movie played but remote inoperative. Let movie run to very end to see what happened. C200 locked up, no response from remote or front controls.

Seems there is a problem if scanning fails to complete?

Huh? Do you mean that Haali is working with Syabas?? Does that mean that we might be able to enjoy 2in1 bluray rips using the MKV feature Ordered Chapters (see references)? That would be so great!

- Ordered chapters as described by Haali himself:
