I have just bought this device and I must say my experience so far is terrible.
I have tried to play 4 movies :
Avatar is few frames per second, terribly slow and thus cannot be watched.
I have tried the 3 Jason Bourne.
In the 3 movies:
- I have a perfect image and perfect sound for about 5 minutes, then, no sound at all!!! When I tried to restart the movies, the sound shut at exactly the same frame. when I try to look at these movies from my the same HD on my computer, it works without any problem.
Everytime I use the forward or backward button, the speed of forward/backward is such that I am going up to the end/beginning of the movie! And I have to push play several times to get the movie to play again.
It is a mess! So I tried to upgrade the firmware: but whatever gen 1 or gen 2 files I put at the root level of my HD, the firmware icon would not show up and there is nothing in the Settings System menu to upgrade it. Since I didn’t find the icon I found this forum and here I am.
Do you have any idea what is going on ? How to upgrade the firmware? Why I encounter those erratic behaviors?
You are my last hope… before I return the player to Amazon…
