Check out the Post "Beta Update" - then follow the directions.

I'm sure SoFo are taking it very seriously - I see the 'public beta' as evidence of that. Are you saying you want a fix released before it's been fully tested? I think the 'public beta' route is exactly the way to go to make sure the fix does what is intended. It sounds like you want to put the cart before the horse.

Did the beta fix the problem you were having?
Clyde200 wrote on 3/13/2003, 12:31 PM
I'll let you know... testing right now.

I downloaded the beta and everything I threw at it worked like a charm. All problems corrected here.

Did any of you have the 'skipping' video problem with 1.0? I did and noticed a few others did too on DVD set top players like Apex and Mintek. 1.0a did not fix my problem with this. Wondering if someone else got it working.

Where did you get the update? I couldn't find it on the updates page..everything else was there, did they take it off? Could someone send it to me thanks.

I still have the speed-up slow-down problem too but the blocky menu problem is gone. I've e-mailed them back with my findings.

1.0a does not address the skipping video problem on Apex players. We are still trying to determine the cause of this problem.

What does/will the update address?
scsinuts wrote on 3/14/2003, 12:25 PM
I e-mailed sofo with the info that they asked for yesterday and still haven't had a response. How long does it take them to get back with you?

Here's the thread:
Update beta

Make sure you follow the instructions, you have to e-mail with you serial #, description of your exact problem, system specs.

Not sure if they're still accepting beta testers, if you are experiencing a problem that this fixes maybe they'll still send out the download info. Maybe they'll have another round of beta testing? My hope is that they are hard at work trying to figure out the skipping problem on Apex's. ;)

Thanks for all who responded to the beta inquiry. We are not accepting any more beta testers at this time. A DVDA 1.0a update, and a list of what items were fixed in the update, should be available for download early next week. This forum will be notified instantly when the update is posted.

Hopefully they will also address some of the supported drive issues. I can't even get to the point most of you are at because my drive isn't supported even though th DVDA page leads you to believe it is.
