Is latest beta firmware pre-installed for the recent shipment of 1070?
Mine will be arrived on next friday. Do I have to update to the latest firmware to fix the " no audio " problem?

The beta firmware will not be pre-installed, but it's worth installing as it appears to have eliminated or substantially reduced the instances of "no audio."

Is there an official thread with feedback on the effectiveness of the latest beta firmware? Anyone still having issues?

There has been very little discussion of it. I found this thread and this thread in the 970 forum.

Thanks Gonk....sounds promising from the little response that is out there. If it's fixed I may just have to pick up another 1070!

sorry to be the bearer of bad news...
but I've had two ''no-audio'' events...with the latest firmware...both when turning on unit...
once while simultaneously turning on unit and unplugging headphones...
That's a big NO NO...
and the other time...it turned on ...
but remained unmoved from either remote or front panel volume controls...
volume was stuck at -40 and wouldn't budge
I could switch sources...
but no audio was getting through anywhere...
both times shutting down the unit from the rear panel switch and then turning it on fixed it...
it's been a couple weeks now and I haven't had it since...
and even if it happens again...I'll forward the available info to the Outlaws...as I did the last time...
and I'll still love my 1070... cool

Yeah, that's no fun... The second case sounds different than the "no audio" situation that the firmware beta was addressing, since the volume control was also stuck and switching sources didn't resolve matters - sounds more like a lock-up of some sort. Either way, keep Outlaw in the loop as you've been doing and we'll see where it takes us.

I just installed the Beta firmware today. The process took approximately 3 minutes. I do not have my HDTV yet. I still need to complete my shelves and get the speakers tehn power up the 1070.

I Think that would be nice if Outlaw will move the RS-232 port to the front in the future model. It may make the unit does not look good as is but who care, we are here for the good sound quality and easy software upgrade.
Any though?
