Ive been using the Ellion HMR700a for some time now, but only found this forum today.
I must admit, I don't use all of its facilities like many other members, but for what I use it for, I think it's a good bit of kit..
At present, we record to an external USB hard drive, edit the footage on my main PC and then save them as DIVX HD movies to a Dedicated hard drive on a networked PC. The movies are then accessed directly from the HMR700a, via the network.
I had quite a problem downloading the March 16 2009 firmware, it took ages to download and then saved as the wrong filename.
I eventually managed the download, and updated the 700a without further incident.
If anyone else is having problems downloading the latest firmware, especially in the UK, I have uploaded it to to;-
I hope this is of some assistance.
The only problem I have is with loosing sound. After fast forwarding or anything that messes with the viewing speed, the next time a movie is selected, there is no sound. This is restored after a soft re-boot.
Sound is via SPDIF RAW, into a home cinema amplifier, which works fine with all other inputs.
Has anyone else experienced this problem?
Regards to all,
