It is expected, if the output of the new firmware for the A-100? Many files have stopped play. It is waiting for help from you ...

I doubt whether there will be another firmware - the links to firmwares for A100 and A110 have recently been removed from forum's front page.

so that's it then. the product is dead. well, except that it seems to still do everything that I want it to do. so really, I have no problems with it.

Yes im pretty much 100% positive that 100/110 is EOL. it had a good 4 year stretch. And still plays everything that is out there besides crappy encodes.

I hope the final and last firmware upgrade will be on 31th of March. It will be exactly 1 year of the last upgrade. A celebration to close the first product line. Hope Sybass will be publish and be open with the source so other users may continue developing 3rd party software/drivers.

To be honest i have much more problems with my C-200 compared with my A-100. C-200 is slower and has problems playing mkv (audio breaks due to network, or something else - cannot really find out). The only advantage for me at the moment is that you can play BDs.

Well it's good you love your A-100. I got the most out of mine and the 200 series is miles apart in terms of capabilities.

TBH I would like to hear it from Werner or another syabas emplyee to make it 100% official that it is EOL, although I am also pretty sure it is.

And in my A-110 experience, over those 4 years it has played ~85% of what I threw at it. The other 15% required manual intervention usually accompanied with a reboot of the device (IDX/SUB problems in 4 firmware releases, DVD over SMB playback stutter in one firmware release, MKV header compression support only in latest firmware)

Really? Apart from playing BDs, what other advantages does 200 series has that sets it "miles apart" from A100? Not trying to be smartass here; I really want to know.

Let's just say I outgrew it.

I bought the very first units when they came out and after a couple of years it just seemed slower and slower to me.

It's kinda like a laptop, when you get a new one it's really fast but after a couple of years it's just seems slower.

Or maybe it's because I was beginning to personalize it to my needs like stuffing oversight on it while running torrent downloads and streaming at the same time. It just got too much for what I wanted to do.

Admittedly I'm beginning to feel that now with the 200 series, but I'm not as interested in media players anymore as I once was when this gadget was still the "in" thing.

But don't let me dissuade you, you're lucky you're happy with it instead of gadget geeks like moi who seem to be always looking for the next gadget to spend money on.

P.S. What sold me to the 200 series was playing back TrueHD/DTSHD tracks within MKV. I don't like m2ts files as I don't own a PS3.

Maybe it's now the time to have a "Soft DTS Downmix" Upgrade flash since there will be no future updates (EOL) anymore.

I've still not installed a Soft DTS Downmix because every time I want to do this Sybass release a new firmware.
It's been more than a year with the latest firmware. I was hoping they will release a new one after a year to support the latest codecs and the multiple language Sub/IDX subtitles.

IIRC one of the resellers (dragontech) had something like this in their firmware.. but it was a test firmware and while kind of worked, it wasn't flawless and sometimes the power of the cpu was obviously not up to it.. these units really are just enough to play the video cpu wise.

I keep seeing people post about upgrading codecs though and my main reason to reply.. what codecs are you all running into that you can't play.. of course the hd audio things but with all these auto-tools now, it's really fast to add in an ac3 downmix upon download for lower end players.

I just pulled my A-100 out of the closet (got shelved when I got my C-200) and was surprised at how many of my HD file formats it would play. The only problem I ran into was some wouldn't play audio. Then I read about the Soft DTS Downmix. I did update to the latest FW. Is this a modified FW or just an addon and is it something that can be removed if it causes problems? I realize it won't play HD audio.

A couple of my BR rips to MKV stuttered bad. I assume this is due to the limitations of the chip?

I guess there is still life in the old boy....

Do you really want to ask about cross flashing firmware on this forum. Think very hard.Wink
