I was told that its been discontinued.
As you may be aware new users are experiencing problems when downgrading theoir machines to earlier versions of firmware (eg. 1.80).
The advice given is NOT TO DOWNGRADE LOWER THAN THE VERSION OF FIRMWARE SHIPPED WITH YOUR MACHINE.
This is because old firmware may not be compatible with the EPROM chip present in the latest SC-200 machines.
I am conducting a survey to understand bettter what hardware/software combinations are about.
Please go to the Secret Software Menu Page:
"OPEN - SETUP - STOP - MENU"
and report the following if different from previous threads :
1. HARDWARE CODE (first line on screen)
eg. ADV7172 = Chipset
00000003 = EPROM Model (AMIC 29040 in this case)
2.ORIGINAL SHIPPED FIRMWARE
3. DATE PURCHASE
4. LOWEST FIRMWARE VERSION SUCCESSFULY RE-UPGRADED FROM (do not try lower versions for this survey!)
Niviz - I concur with Filip. Upgraded this evening but SVCD`s still don`t play. Disappointing !
I created a MP3 disc to check out MP3 playback on V2.14.
Everything appears fine.
So the problem is only with SVCD.
I upgraded my SC-2000 from 2.06 to 2.14 today.
VCR friendly mode works (after entering codes twice), however SVCD`s that have played OK on V2.06 no longer play (disc ejected).
Has anyone else tried SVCD`s with this firmware ?
Gamesmaster : Where did you get your V1.8 firmware copy from ?
Also reading past discussions, I have seen a comment that after adding the firmware file to a CD-R, the structure is like a VCD. When I have done this (to NiVZ FAQ instructions) I just have the tdvd-000.rom file on the route directory of the CD. Is that how it should be ?
What`s wrong with the copy @ http://hdubois.free.fr/scan ?
I have download this but not used it yet.
Is firmware V2.14 not working correctly ?
I was about to give it a try from version 1.6 when my scan (1 week old)
died while in standby ! The 3 A plug fuse was blown & on replacement still no life.
Its being returned to Scan.
