Firmware update ammendments (Re: BDP8000/78).
I have done the same update, namely from version 1.56 to 1.60, and it does flawlessly work now.

I had two consecutive audio dropouts and finally the picture and sound froze completely.
It occurred to me that in past firmware updates it was necessary to carry on a hardware reset after updating, and regardless of the player resetting itself.
To do this you must disconnect the player from the AC mains, wait a few moments and reconnect it.
This should do the trick. In fact, I urge anyone in this forum to the same, regardless of the update results.
And I hope this info can help you out. If the update had errors it wouldn't work in my player as well.
