    On the german website of the BDP5200/12,
    there is only the Firmware upgrade V1.42 of 2012-02-14, not 1.52:

    http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/d...&slg=de&scy=DE

    Can you fix it or post a direct downloadlink, thank you.

    Hi,

    Simply Share is based on Twonky Server - you can install this also on PCs.

    Hi,

    I think, the firmware is now ready for Maxdome, but the app isn't disabled until a certain amount of users have installed 1.52.

    What a crazy idea to enable a feature in dependence of the number counts of customers firmware upgrades. Are you sure about that behaviour?

    Hi,

    first - I noticed a wrong word in my post - replace "disabled" with "enabled" or "isn't" with is...

    I don't know, if the Net TV portal can check if you have the latest firmware on your device. But imaging you have the old firmware and maxdome is enabled and you are paying for the content...

    I think that installed apps can check for the version and tell you about a wrong firmware.

    Hmm, are these really the only changes in the firmware?
    And is Maxdome even going to be available in the UK?
    If not then (since I don't see the need to hook up an Android phone) I guess I'll skip this one.

    Still hoping that iPlayer will be uncrippled some day soon :-/

    You can also just use Windows Media Player.
    The BDP is listed as 'media streaming device'. Just right-click on the media from the library and select 'Play to...'

    The strangest thing is, that this now works on my BDP5200 (so I can push audio/video to the player from the laptop), but still the 'Browse PC' Option from the HOME screen still blocks... e.g. it just animates and stays on the HOME screen).

    Have a nice weekend!
    Greets,
    Chris
