MZpro5, I think the answer would be no. However, I am very critical, perhaps even cynical. But, I like what they have done with 990 firmware. Sure I would like more stuff addressed, but it sure is nice to be able to see the current mode without changing it. Also, being able to get to 7.1 direct from the panel is great too...

Oh, wait a sec, someone had posted about the "uninstall option" I didn't notice it, but then again I wasn't looking for it either. The interface is a multi step process to install, and the graphic that comes up on the PC had a few buttons grayed out, perhaps after software install they become active. But again, I am "happy" with the update.

Thanks. I had no issues with my 990 previous to the new firmware so am hesitant to install per the number of problems people have reported plus "if it ain't broke . . ." The fact that an uninstall might not be possible makes me even more hesitant.

Thanks again.

mzpro5,

If one truly wanted to roll back to the previous version we would help them with that. However, this software update adds requested features and fixes some bass management issues.

There would be no reason to roll back, but again, if you wanted to do that we would provide you with the means to do so.

Best,

Scott

mzpro5 - Unless you are talking about problems with the actual install the new FW is definitely a step up from the old one. For me the 7.1 front panel select and the delay readout alone make it worth while. Iím only aware of one problem with the new FW and that is with the 2 channel sub offset that only manifests itself when you have a large (negative) attenuation on the sub channel. Sure there are lots of features we would still like to see implemented but this FW is a step in the right direction.

Scott, obie

Thanks for the info. The 7.1 front panel select is of no real interest to me the remote control is fine.

obie, not sure what you mean about the "delay readout" feature, could you elaborate?

From the installation description:

"The ability to view the Lip Sync delay time on the front panel display so that you may use this important feature even when an HDTV signal is in use through the component video or DVI inputs."

Very handy for those of us with projectors and digital interface.

Thanks again obie. Not quite at that point in my display technology and have had no lip synch problems so far.

I have just (I think) installed the new firmware into my 990.

Excuse my ignorance but what is the most obvious indicator that I have the new software installed?

To me, it appears nothing has changed. For instance, activating the 7.1 direct input from the front panel-how is this done?, by cycling thru- pushing the input button? I have tried this and I can't seem to input 7.1. This leads me to believe that the install failed. Same with renaming the audio inputs and also the surround modes on the front display. It all seems to work the same way as before.

Thanks in advance for any input

Did all of your previous settings get erased?
