    If anyone has just bought a Sony 300 player and wants to update the firmware but doesn't have a burner or access to a PC then I have an update cd sent to me from from scgf that I am happy to send on to someone else. See thread here

    If you want to use this disc please post your interest on this thread and it will be sent on to the next person on the thread. Please PM the person above you with your address.

    Hope it helps a few more folk ...

    Have received PM from MindVox at 15.20pm and one from Bosque at 17.49. I will ask both to post here and Mindvox for his address and so it will hopefully continue.

    Glad to be of help ...

    Hi jont

    As requested I am posting here to request the 3.7 firmware disc and would be very grateful to receive it when MindVox has finished with it. My Blu-Ray arrived upgraded to 3.2 level, so I assume I need to further upgrade it to 3.7. Many thanks in advance and will pass it on to the next person.

    Hi Jont & Bosque,

    I received both your PM's and per Jont's request I'm posting my request for the Firmware disc here. :thumbsup:

    Jont, I'll PM you my address when I finish this reply.

    Bosque, I have your address via PM and will get the disc off to you the second I'm finished updating my own player.

    Thanks again for all your help guys, much appreciated.

    Regards,

    Arthur. :smashin:

    despite PM'ing Mindvox for his address and not getting a response I am aware there are folks still waiting - I'll send it straight to the next member on the list who needs it and if Mindvox re-appears then it can go to him from someone ...

    Can Eye_on_me, a1matt and lemans55 please post here to say they still need it and I'll take then in that order ...

    Just contacted Sony in regards to the problem, They said they have never heard of anything like this before :suicide:

    Needs to go in for a repair, In the meantime I do what exactly. Player is 3 months old and has had very little use and the firmware has killed it.

    From what I have read over the last few weeks there has been several instances of problems after installing 3.7. :lease: be warned.

    It's a strange player anyway. In order to get it to playback via an HDMI lead it appears to also need component leads going from the player to the monitor. I also had to reset the resolution because one of my TV sets is 720 while the player default is 1080i (or p, forget which). Why can't it simply auto-connect ? And the profile features on the 3:10 to Yuma disc really screw it up with stuck images frozen on screen and needing a manual reboot to get rid.

    They must have some volume manufacturing problems. Mine worked straight out of the box with 2 leads - one power, one HDMI. The 3.7 update (from the US site) updated it fine. It's a UK region 2 player.

    Once however, the picture froze in the middle of a movie. Disconnecting & reconnecting the power sorted it though, not had any trouble since.

    Sounds ominous!

    I'll give it a good going over tonight, if it freezes it goes back where it came from (Amazon).

    Only spun Casino Royale and POTC 3 but both seem fine ... POTC seemed to load much quicker than I had expected ...
