Last night I got tired of the notifications that I kept getting about new firmware, so I decided to do the update. I was all excited to start watching true blood season 2. But no, the updated firmware wouldn't even get to the menu. So, I set out to find the firmware I did have v2.05 when it all worked. While doing so I ran accross an idea to try, after it dies trying to play it, hit the power button to turn it off, then, hit play on the remote, not the power button. It then brings up the menu. Woohoo!
