I think you can hold on, and wait for a little bit more time, I do think that new firmware will be released in June as a-300 has some news on new firmware finally, I guess we will receive update very soon

I feel ya man. A buddy of mine asked me what type of media player I had because he really liked it (at that time it was my C-200, which worked very well and still does). I told him it was the C-200 and where to buy it. After he looked it up, he informed me that they had a new version out, the C-300, which he purchased. I needed a 2nd media player because I was wanting one for my bedroom and living room and I was already about to buy another C-200, so I immediately ordered a C-300 as well. Big F*cking mistake! My friend is pissed off as hell and I am too! They should have advertised on their website that the product was currently unstable. This is making an awful impression on Popcorn Hour/Syabas.

from my understanding, the firmwares have been in QA to get past the basic testing and come out with the first round of sigma fixes. it shouldn't be too much longer to start getting players that are usable for more people. i'm seeing other brands on the same chips with even more issues so it's not syabas specific.

If you haven't checked, make sure your particular problems are posted in the 300 bugs section so they aren't overlooked.

Is this true? I am waiting for my c-300 to receive a major update dealing with instability and tons of playback issues

Don't read too much into it.. they've gone weeks and months with failed tests before something comes out.

So I always suggest the need of releasing beta firmware for public test.

Watch the forums, when/if they ask for c300 testers put your name in for consideration. At this time I don't think a c300 beta group is planned but you never know.

They tried that with the 200 series. And in the beginning it was working great but then beta testers kinda fell off the map and posted random stuff, would ask in beta threads when the next beta was coming would just say ok firmware worked or ok it did not work without explaining how they tested it. It turned into a huge mess people posting bugs that were not actually bugs but user errors but would not listen to anyone's input.

It just got to be to much work for werner which was who sifted through all the useless information hoping to find some good detailed reports.

What about restricting the format of the reply like beta tester must follow a specified reply format or they will lost the test ticket?

Model name:
Which part video/sound/network have bugs:
What specifically the bug is:

etc.

Thats how it was but still takes a lot of man hours to manage, as someone has to make sure people are posting, and doing good reports, then if you lose people you have to add more, It was a lot of work, and werner is not always around so it can get out of hand fast. Hopefully there comes a time when they bring it back again but im not counting on it.

Hi. I know that patiente is a virtue, but four months since last firmware update, with machines with a lot of bugs, I think its a good problem, and the problem is that the buyers loose all the patiente. If I buy a mediaplayer I cannot be lot of times looking in the forum to solve a problem. I'm not a fanboy. I only want to sit to see a good film without problems. So please, less think to sell and more to programe (its not to moderators, obviosly), thats my opinion like A200 and A300 user.

PCH A-300
Toshiba TDP-S20 proyector
