factory reset is not the solution.. after a while, subs are gone and a reboot fixt it.
waiting such a long time for a new firmware that's full with even more bugs?
I just downgrade to the last firm.

That what I'm getting when I try to Install Firmware. I never had that problem with other versions.

you have most likely installed some CSI applications and they are not shutting down properly to allow the drive to be unmounted for the firmware quick fix pull the drive update put drive back in.

I did not installed anything new. Everything is what was original with A-300.
But I will try what you said.

You do realize the only people that have problems are the only ones that are going to post? for all we know 98% of people are problem free and if people dont try a firmware how do you expect things to be fixed.

Some positive comments for a little balance perhaps.

I have had no problems with an install of the latest firmware - went very smoothly (I have no additional software on the NMT).

I reported three bugs on the previous firmware to Syabas.

One bug, where NMJ took up to 80 secs to open a TV Series and two minutes to open a video file (when you have a large number of series) seems to have been resolved. Navigation in TV Series is as quick as Movies now.

Another bug led to freezing during playback of a single vob file (most of my DVD movies are in a single vob file). I have watched a couple of these movies now without difficulty. FF and RW in vobs has also improved. I can now get up to 8x FF when only 4x was previously available, and it stops at the point you press the button, not some minutes further on in the file. RW remains a little problematic and can drop you out in an unexpected spot. More testing to be done, but an improvement nonetheless.

The last bug I reported, concerned the listing of FLAC music files by the PUBLISHER tag rather than the ALBUM ARTIST tag, when viewing by Artist Name in NMJ. This was to be fixed in this firmware. Not sure about this one as I am not about to remove the ALBUM ARTIST name from the PUBLISHER tag only to have to replace it. I have seen others mention a continuing problem with Various Artists, with songs from a single album contained in individual albums per song in the NMJ database. No reports of this occurring for other Artists. So maybe some improvement, but not completely resolved.

I thought re-scanning was quicker - 10 hours instead 18 for 1000 movies, nearly 2600 TV episodes - but probably can't attribute that entirely to the firmware with all the variables involved. Re-scanned the DB onto the internal drive for the first time - went very smoothly (thanks for the instructions Chris57!).

Subtitles have not been a problem for me - I avoid them.

All up - for me, a positive experience so far, in respect of a box that I could have cheerfully launched off the top floor of my office building on many occasions!

Thanks for the new firmware! The main issues i had were about subtitles (srt.) not showing properly, now i just tested all on mkv. and it seems everything works fine.

Hallo,

I installed the new firmware but I still have problems with the subtitles. More specific I can not activate the "dutch" subtitles of any HD mkv files (.sub files). The subtitles are not displayed in the subtitle menu so I can not select them.

Is this a known problem?

Thx

Niko

Start a new thread post a mediainfo output. Also are you making these files yourself? is there a chance its a hires .sub file and not the dvd standard of 480p for it?

You do realise bugs are in the firmware, meaning in ALL the A300 out there have them. Posting bugs or not doesn't change the FACT.

true but if more people dont try how are bugs going to be found. Like the subtitle bug was found and was also found a factory reset fixes it.

This new version introduces a problem playing (FLAC) music. After selecting an album or a song the NMJ restarts at the moment the music is about to start. A large majority of my library on the internal HDD (all FLAC) does not play anymore. Tried to rebuild the database, but that did not help at all. All files were generated from CD with the EAC tooling and thus have in principle the same format. Will have to find out how to downgrade as this firmware version makes the A300 useless for my use.

Hello,
I have the same problem. It seems that new firmware refuses to play almost half of my FLAC albums.

I tried to trace any differences. It seems that files that are unable to play have following tags.

Part : 1
Part/Total : 1
Track name/Total : 10

I removed them by use of foobar2000. It makes that NMJ can start playing such file but then NMJ becomes very slow/irresponsive and anyway it leads to its restart.

How hard was it to add a little option so that when in NMJ we can just press up to get to the last movie.
You're on A, the only way to get to Z is to go through all the damn movies, with the four or five 2-seconds freezes that implies.
Also, now the thing just freezes sometimes and nothing will help but a hard reboot.

The new firmware cause a problem whit nmj (in my case).
After a new scan of my video folder, all the film have the wrong poster.
The poster are duplicated and in random position.
