Post Olevia BDP-110 Firmware Upgrade

Hello.

A new firmware update was released Jan 28th I think that fixed the problem with Fox blu-ray titles. I downloaded it and burned the ISO. image files to disc. I was able to update the firmware of the machine. I've since bought Horton hears a Who and it played on my olevia without any problems. It shows beautifully. So, for any who needs to update your player go to the support website. olevia.supportsync.com burn the firmware update to a disc and you should be good to go.

Just curious, but how do you know the player is overheating? Does you feel heat coming out the fan exit in the back? After how many movies?

I've had mine since Nov and I've never had any heat problems, never feels hot at all.

Looks as if the Olivia 110 is no longer available at Target, at least it's no longer on their site!

Never said that, was just making a comment about something I discovered. Hey I'm a 120 owner also it's not like I'm trying to bad mouth it!

I found a solution to the lack of Bass Management on the 5.1 output on the Olevia. I ran my front right speaker wire to the Right Speaker Line input on my Subs plate amp and then from the Speaker level out of the sub to the Front Speaker. The LFE channel is on the Left channel RCA input on the sub. I was surprised to see that they both worked at the same time but it really worked and now the Bass problem is solved! You could also run a "Y" RCA connector from your receivers Right Channel 5.1 preamp out "if it has one" directly to the Sub along with the LFE channel to get the full range of bass.
This is only for the owners that have all small speakers and a sub that are using the 5.1 out of the Olevia.

Actually that is a good question, where now can the Olevia BDP-120 or 110 be found? I just searched and can not find any online places!
Are they now discontinuing their Bluray player? I know it was not Olevia's player other then name.

Default Olevia Blu ray BDP-110 firmware update Success

We bought this blu ray player for my dad at target for Christmas and we just now got it updated with the firmware and now are enjoying the high quality of the blu ray discs. I tried before to update it but had failed. I found the hardest part of the update is getting the firmware onto a disc. If anyone wants a copy of the disc that holds the firmware update that was successful for us, please let me know.

Makes me wonder how they will be moving forward with distributing FW updates.

Default "Unknown Disc"

If you try loading a new disk and after a minute "Unknown Disc" is displayed, turn the unit off, wait about 10 seconds and turn it back on. Many disks will then load and start playing.

Default It Worked

I actually went through many CD-R s (9!!!) to get it to work. Finally I placed in a CD-R and just copied the files (not the .iso file) the individual files using the Windows XP program. Not Nero, Not Sonic, Not anything out of the ordinary. Didnt finalize it, and what do ya know. The screen went black and the player said it was updating. So keep it simple....just extract the files....put in a CD-R and copy and paste them over and try it. It worked for me.

I downloaded a free file called 7zip using their link. I left it open on my screen then copied the update file to my E drive. The Olevia Blu Ray accepted the update (after twice telling it that I wanted it to do so). It went through all the procedures as listed in the update. My new 007 disc is now playing ok when it had been denied before.

Default Olevia BDP-100 Blu-Ray Player....Officially Discontinued!

Well, just to verify it, I asked about it at Target, they said it was discontinued. It went on sale for $169.99 on clearance. Wow, the player only came out in October. Most likely they will release a better one. But I got it for $149 on Christmas week. Has been a great player, but slow loading time. But for the price it was a real bargain, and with the updates, all the blu ray discs now play. But yes, it has officially been discontinued.
Well, if any one wants one, its EBAY time

I wonder if it sold enough to make them offer another Bluray player when you factor in the cost of the support. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this player was only available at Target not any other retailer of Olevia brand TV's?

I am very pleased with mine, especially running the memorex FW which solved my biggest problem with it.

The question now is whether we will ever see another FW update for this player.

Kinda seems unlikely.

There was a big article here in the Phoenix area, since they are based in Tempe and buy out of Taiwan. Here is the article:

I wouldn't count on any tech support.

Does anyone have a working link to the latest FW v2.o? I can't play fox movies and olevia is no longer suppoting the player.

Please PM me. Thanks, Derek.
