Re: [BETA] ACR-PV73100 v7.4.x.r4585 Playon!HD
only 5 pages of comments after 3 weeks into the release...guess people have given up
Exactly the same thought occurred to me - I believe that the problems that plague every version of the firmware have discouraged so many users that they have given up on this product. I know that I used to check the discussion frequently in hopes that things would improve significantly. Now I only check back once in a while, but the situation always seems to be the same. Too bad.
There are probably more factors to this. I personally think the firmware is getting better for every update, there might be those who disagree. This is normal when it comes to online support/forums, happy costumers make less noise than unhappy costumers. It's also summer time, this is a kind of low season for movie watching in general.
In either case, back to work!
I also disagree, I was at a shop looking at Media Players yesterday they had a whole bunch and quite a crowd (I was amaized at how many brands), even the salesman (I bought my ACR from 9-months ago) was pushing 'other brands' when I asked why, he said I get too many complaints, when I got him to expand nearly everything was firmware related.
I am looking to sell mine off and get something else; why? I'm sick and tired of re-booting because the network is unstable. I dont want to go back to PV73100_v7.3.4 because the UI was crap especially the colour scheme.
So now I have to keep carting my sodding unit around the house to my PC to copy movies using USB cable.
In my opinion you are wrong with your comment "happy costumers
make less noise than unhappy costumers" fed-up customers who have complained about the same thing over and over and over again with no news or ETA on a cure just loose the energy to complain, if that's ACR's tactic then re-think because I absolutely promise you it's loosing you reputation and sales.
What should I do post every week with the same question? Will that make you realise I'm fed-up?

6) Description of problem: when trying to copy media from PC to ACR over Wired LAN, Networked drops and HDD1 is reported "No Longer Found"
Windows Network Diagnostic 'report' its said: file and print sharing resource (PLAYONHD) is online but isn't responding to connection attempts. Detected
The remote computer isn’t responding to connections on port 445, possibly due to firewall or security policy settings, or because it might be temporarily unavailable. Windows couldn’t find any problems with the firewall on your computer.
My problems is ongoing network problems, I have to re-boot so many times I feel like throwing the damn thing away. File transfer speed over the LAN Cable is also inconsistent, most of the time I can't even get 1mb/s.
