  1. Disabled editing NTE number assignments because there is no keyboard, which is needed to enter the letters & symbols for each number.
  2. Remember last workgroup entered in network file browser & restore the last workgroup path when returning to the parent of the server currently being browsed.
  3. Added support to recognize BluRay disks in the video browser & other places. Also added generic BluRay icon.

When using the STP-HD200 as a SageTV media extender, it is recommended that SageTV server beta v6.5.15 or newer be used.

beta firmware "20090526 2"

STP-HD200 Beta firmware version "20090526 2" is now available for testing.

To use beta firmware:
While using the HD200 as a Media Player (standalone mode), use the remote's number pad to enter the code 2382 ('beta') on the HD200's Settings -> System Update menu in order to tell it to look for the beta version. For help about how to update the firmware, see the HD200's manual (found in the box the unit came in) or this FAQ.

The above method is faster, but you can alternatively use that FAQ's "Recovery Procedure via USB Drive" using these download links, remembering to rename the files to match the FAQ's instructions:
http://download.sage.tv/firmware/stp200-20090526-2.ver
http://download.sage.tv/firmware/stp200-20090526-2.bin


Submit any bugs you find to here please: http://sagetv.com/bugs.html
Forum posts about this firmware should be posted to the SageTV Beta Test Software forum.



Changes for beta version 20090526 2 include the following:

Core changes:
  1. Improve network performance
  2. Fix hang in some mkv files.
  3. Modify range of volume control
  4. Fix vorbis audio decoding
  5. Fix early ending in some streams
  6. Improve game dvd playback
  7. Add support for HFS+ external drives
  8. Fixed issue with ReadyNAS 'share' security mode and file playback
  9. Fixed issue with browsing network shares on Buffalo LinkStation
  10. DVD aspect ratio fix

Media Player (Standalone) UI changes:
  1. Updated Speed TV online videos.

  3. Added "Rescan Existing Library Files" option in Advanced Setup -> Advanced, used to redetect file format & metadata info for imported files.
