    My box updated this morning at 7am exactly to build number 20120628. Not sure what's new yet hopefully the fixed the remote pairing issue. Previous firmware was 20120620 so I am not sure what was fixed in that time difference or even of that how it works. I am about to go to bed. So all those with prerelease boxes please let me know what you find.

    Ps. The media player still say coming soon

    So far I have not found anything new. No ntfs support yet. I am hoping this atleast fixes the remote unpairing issue. But only time will tell. The very odd thing is that my other Sony box in my living room did not get the update and it isn't finding it in the software update section. Both boxes are indentical and hooked up to my same google account. Only difference was that one didn't have the new york zip code and was left blank. I switched it to the new york zip code and no luck. Did anyone else get the update yet.

    check again my box in my living room just got the update. i am disappointed though because i was not home at the time so i was not able to see what the update details section said. so i ask of everyone else when they get the update popup click details before you click install incase they have a change log in the details section.

    They may just be sending it out to a certain number of people as an un-announced beta.

    I woke up in the morning and saw the message that the software got updated. so it did not ask me for an update. so i don't have any change log.

    But after playing with the box with the new firmware, i feel it gives a slightly faster response than previous firmware.

    Pyres this is what I meant...no specific notes.

    Im looking for 2 issues that I was having before the update.
    the pairing issue and losing live tv overnight.

    So far I haven't seen those problems...
