Downloaded and installed this morning. Went on in about 4 mins.
I had hopes for this, being my first f/w upgrade. The loud POP! on the DtsHD soundtrack for Golden Compass near the start of ch5 is still there - made the cat jump, again. As are the spurious glitches in the image. I suppose it must just be a shoddy disc?
good god will I ever be able to access the damn firmware page without receiving an error message of some kind?!!
Tried looking for somewhere hosting the file but have been unsuccessful. sigh.
I've just done the 'pop' update for my wOnkyo 605 this morning via the BD30 and its all sorted, no more cats jumping out of their fur!
Worth mentioning here that the update wipes out all the assignment and EQ settings on the amp. Now where did I put that little microphone...
Did ur update work straight away through the BD30? Any particular settings used?
Can you not get Panasonic to send you out a firmware disc? or is that just to damn slow.
All the best.
See my post here:
Poor service if you ask me.
Had a massive pop happen 11 mins into it. Never had that before. Then had another dropout after 54 mins. Turned the movie off after that. Will try other TrueHD disc later.
Im really getting fed up with this BD30. Wish i didnt buy it if im honest. Might order a Denon 2500BT if it doesnt improve on other discs.
The file sizes of the compressed and decompressed files seem to bear no relationship to the sizes quoted on the Panasonic Update site. Is it sensible to try and install? Roger
I put this link up for a mac user having difficulty with the .exe file - be my guest!
