Just downloaded Release 1.06.16 (8/2/2011).
After the download, it shifted to a new screen:
Your HD Media Player is being upgraded. Please DO
NOT disconnect power or the attached storage.
AND it's been like that for the past 2 hours! Does it really take that longer than that??!
Against the above advice, I turned it off, tried rebooting, took out all the USB devices connected, tried rebooting again, downloaded the upgrade on my computer, unzipped, put into a thumb drive at the root directory, plugged it in, rebooted again... I still end up with the above screen.
Is my 3 month old device permanently bricked at this point?!
Any help would be appreciated!
