I have some issues:
1) DHCP on gives me no internet connection, DHCP off (same gateway/DNS) works (like before). Cisco router / switch.
2) black picture/no sound if I resume BD-Folder (simple BD). (OSD still works)
3) After booting, I cannot play any BD-folder or BD-ISO from NAS (Samba, WHS): the unit hangs completely. Sometimes it boots again. In the former fw I got a endless spinning wheel. Workaround: if I play any other file first, there is no problem.

In the plus: 192/24 bit 2 CH FLAC files now play on my Denon. It did not in former fw.
Subtitles ok now, like on the C200.

I do not use NMJ.

in a few weeks ??? I hope not , and I hope the firmware for A-300 will come this week.
A-300 and C-300 are almost the same.
(same chips , same memory ,etc etc...)

I upgraded the firmware, but now I cannot upgrade the NMT apps because of connection failure.
I reinstalled the network a couple of times, sometimes successfully, but even so the download stops with "some error occurred".
Is this server overload at the PCH end ?

Great update, lots of fixes. What I would recommends, instead of trying to fix 100+ things at a time, and take so long to update the firmware, do more frequent updates, with a smaller subset of fixes. (instead of waiting 4 months for 100 fixes, release every 1-2 months with fewer fixes).

Waiting for the release for A300. Hopefully I will be able to delete files without both my units crashing.

Unable to upgradeAngry

Tried the online method and also downloaded the firmware on an USB-stick: it will NOT install the firmware!
All I get is a blue screen with "Failed ERR029"

Any ideas??

29 means it can't shut everything down that's running to safely update. Shutdown the pch and remove the drives. update and put the drives back in.

Thanx.. I found a similar answer on the forum and already removed the hard-disk during upgrade.
Strange behavior for an update-procedure, remove any HD.
If needed: please document it before I start!

I agree.. I wish people releasing software that others are installing on the pch would at least test they turn on and off correctly. The fast fix is pull the drive so the software can't start up and be in the way.

Quote:If needed: please document it before I start!

odd, there usually are instructions that say that. They appear to be missing this thread.

Online update went off tracks a little. At the end the update screen stated Update successful Rebooting... stayed there for 2 hours. I hard reset it and the unit came back up. Went thru the setup and all seemed well. Went to the app store and the unit states "Cant connect to server" Try to uprate the NMT APPS via online mode. It formats the USB and get stick at 2/3 Downloading NMT . Now screen says Fail to download NMT Rebooting now... and the unit is stuck again.

any suggestions?
