NeTV beta program
This page here is for beta program users. Bugs, updates and compatibility matrices will be posted here.
September 27: Units at version 9 should go to 11. Version 11 is an update from pre-launch, so don't get too excited; we just fixed a bug in update deployment that should have been fixed a while ago. A new update is in the works that has more significant functionality changes and upgrades soon.
September 29: Update system is currently being reworked again, so updates are off-line temporarily. They will be back on-line soon. At the moment if you run an update you will get a signature mismatch error.
September 29: Rework is done, updates should now be happening automatically. Current latest is 11.
As of firmware release 11
- There is a known issue with TKIP encryption, affecting WPA1/WPA2 TKIP-only type links. Please use TKIP+AES, or open. Using Android app 0.5.6 and later will fix this bug, but configuring using IR remote will not work.
- There is a known issue with 128-bit WEP encryption and hex keys.
- Feature request: make rate of scrolling configurable
- Feature request: add PAL support to enable EU cable box compatibility
columns for source compatibility should be: Device description, make, model; and auto-res, forced 480p, forced 720p, compatible; and 1080p truecinema compatible; comments. Numbers in parenthesis indicate the firmware revision that a particular compatibility state was verified in.
compatibility states should be yes, no, and intermittant/partial
|Tivo Series 3||unknown||forced 720p||intermittant (11)||I could get NeTV into mode where it just showed black background, usually by switching video inputs on TV and coming back to the Tivo+NeTV chain. [update: this happens on occasion when switching video inputs to TivoS3, not a dominant operating issue]|
|PS3 CECH-2501A||Version 3.56||forced 480p||yes|
|PS3 CECH-2501A||Version 3.56||forced 720p||yes|
|PS3 CECH-2501A||Version 3.56||forced 1080p||no (11)||NeTV does not support 1080p60|
|PS3 CECH-2501A||Version 3.56||auto||no (11)|| NeTV goes into self-timing mode. However if I connect the PS3 to the TV directly, there is no signal, too. I have to reboot the PS3 then can set the resolution back to manually.

|LG Network Blueray Disc/DVD Player BD550||Main Ver: BD4.380.00; Servo Ver: H08LGN0902||forced 720p||intermittent (11)||NeTV becomes snowy when changing the resolution to 720p sometimes.|

|Apple TV version 2||unknown||all||no (11) / fixed >11||This product is non-compliant to spec. EESS signalling is too early, causing loss of cipher lock. A work-around is implemented and will be deployed in firmware versions greater than 11.|
|Toshiba 40G300U||forced 720p||yes|
|LG FLATRON W2261VP-PF||yes|
|Sony Bravia 32CX520||yes||This TV is very picky about the +5V input. For proper operation you must use the provided power supply and power cable, otherwise the resistive loss and/or tolerance of a typical USB power supply and cable can put you outside its accepted range.|
