If the cause of this problem is the same as for Smudger, no problem, I will wait until it is fixed. If not, I will have to check everything again.
No, you have a complete other problem so i will explain
if you are running the vr-558 betafirmware then you will have a problem when you reformat harddisc or remove the /hdd/stage2 dir
(so just install the original kiss version)
but you dont have the beta installed, you have the public released 1.1.7 RF version for the DP-558 and this is NOT broken
(so you are posting in the wrong thread)
if you have problems with the 1.1.7 RF then i suggest to:
- ftp to the player
- remove the /hdd/stage2 dir with ftp
- reboot player and WAIT til the download complete (max 5 minutes)
- be sure your internet is running otherwise this will fail!!!!
It will be ok, if not then post your problem again (or send me a PM)
