    Still waiting for the update... "Check Now" says my system is up to date, but I'm still on REL07.

    Yes, up to date is what it will say until the update is available for each specific box. There are methods that allegedly force the update sooner but never work for me so I just wait until my box receives the update, usually within a couple of weeks of reading about the update being rolled out.

    As I recall, best time to try it is between 8:00 pm & 11:00 pm (your time) and sometimes it takes several tries. But then again like Chris said he never had any luck with it … :D

    Just tried again.... Check Now... You're up to date. Tried the Forced Update and it worked! Was able to try Vudu with The Hobbit - Dolby Digital + sound :)!

    Remember seeing the update and delayed the install and then checked today and somehow it had been installed. Possible the update is being installed while its idle?

    In Canada REL 08 is :

    "The NSZ-GS7 Network Media player firmware upgrade build version REL08_NSZGS7_CA2_2106_131390_20130406_URSC_S67254 is available and provides the following benefits:Improvements over firmware version REL07_NSZGS7_CA2_2010_8249_20130219_URSC_S67254:

    • Adds the 3D video playback function
    "
    So no VUDU !

    I just checked my GS7 and it is still on REL 07.

    As far as Vudu app I would say Vudu 'd love to release it in Canada if it wasn't a licenses issue.


    You could also, Give Force update a try - w/ some luck, it may help & speed up the update :)

    I've always force updated every release on mine except this one because I had no idea it was coming. Strange I got it before it was posted on Sony's site. I guess I was lucky this time.

    Can someone explain that to me. does the new media player play 3d sbs files? or am i missing something? Also i can play 3d sbs movies on my computer with certain media players like kmplayer. does android have any apk which i could add to play these? if not is it possible to make one, the $ potential would be great

    post RELO7 & RELO8 i have had worse compatibility with my comcast cable box and with the remote unpairing. I was hoping RELO8 would fix it, but it seems to have made it even worse. Anyone else notice in uptick in these problems post rel07 or rel08?

    Wow. I can't believe we got the VuDu app ... and all we had to do was wait. Unfortunately, I've still got too many movies on the DVR I haven't watched ...
