CFULLHDMA: beta firmware

  • Just released before the weekend for beta testers: version
  • Samba Mount could not be removed after unplugging cable
  • Samba shares could not be found, when you leave the server and you enter it again adding a new Samba share it will not show server list (code scenario)
  • Fixing the display of JPEGs not correctly (grey images with wierd stripe through it)
  • Fixing a space in the URL issue (web interface)
  • Fixing DVD chapter issue (hickup video/audio)
    note: many times IFO files are incorrect and causing issues during playback of a DVD,. So rather denying an error we have to make ways around the error.

Beta program stops 31-07-2008

CFULLHDMA: Remote Control

I saw a request (but cannot find the e-mail anymore) from someone asking if it could be possible to separate the power ON and power OFF for the CFULLHDMA

Unfortunately, the Power ON/OFF is not only controlled by Firmware. the IR codes are, next to firmware, also controlled by another micro processor (a very small IC on the PCB) so therefor it’s not supported. I’ll keep it in mind.

If you want to have the IR codes: find them here
