    From Sony's site...

    I hope this update fixes my problem of the TV app randomly losing video and audio from my Directv HR20 HD DVR which results in me having to reboot the Sony box to fix it.

    I just tried making it check for updates and it says it is up to date although it has the last firmware on it. I guess I have to wait a while before it decides it wants to grab it.

    My NSZ-GS7 was updated this morning to rel04_nszgs7_u2_1210_5720_20120928_ursc_s67254. I've tried hard to find information about it. Google was able to take me to the Sony page where The_Beacon_Expert found the information shown in the previous post. But using the navigation provided by the Sony site, I wasn't able to find that page!

    Sony eSupport - NSZ-GS7 - Drivers & Software

    So, anyone (The_Beacon_Expert?) knows what is new in this release?

    Best.

    Felipe.

    I got the update as well overnight so now it says
    rel04_nszgs7_u2_1210_5720_20120928_ursc_s67254

    The weird thing is the Sony site says the new firmware should be
    REL04_NSZGS7_MX2_1210_5858_20121003_URSC_S67254

    Check out the Google Play link and you'll see a huge difference :) It now has music and tv as well as games and apps. And it is more confusing to navigate now. At least for me it is.

    One good thing is now you can go to your apps page and check a box to autoupdate the app and it will ask you if you want all your apps to autoupdate if your lazy or forget to check on app updates a lot :)

    So far this latest update seems to have solved my problem of losing video and audio from the HDMI input which was happening randomly.

    Ok, more detail. I have a NSX-40GT1. Before the recent update, the "guide" button on the remote would bring up TV listings, similar to those found at titantv.com. Great resource. Now, it brings up Rovi, but no listings. I keep getting the message, "No TV listings data available." I did go through the initial setup where I entered my zip code & whatever -- at that time it displayed a message that it would take up to 24 hours to finish. It's been 36 hours, and still nothing.
