Harman Updates Firmware For Controversial Lexicon BD-30 Blu-ray Player

Thanks to Harman High Performance A/V, automatic updates will now be available for Blu-ray players connected to the Internet. This addresses concerns and desires expressed by consumers who have purchased Harman's Lexicon BD-30 Blu-ray player.

The updates - which will be available automatically on enabled players or off the website for manual installation - are designed to add configuration flexibility through updated system components; and dramatically improve the systems playability for several upcoming new releases.

The new firmware contains all of the characteristics of the old system with a host of new features added on. There is an updated "auto" mode that allows the HDMI-audio to use bit-stream-audio-output for formats supported by the A/V processor and also allows LPCM for formats that cannot be decoded by the A/V processor. There are updated Blu-Ray disc compatibility improvements that prepare the Blu-Ray player for several upcoming releases, and there is a new sub-title and on-screen-display shift feature for customers with 2.35:1 projection screens.

This is the first time that an Internet-connected player will be able to identify, download and install updates automatically. In addition to the other features, these new updates are designed to enhance HDMI-compatibility with MC12-HD V2.0 and provide additional setup menu changes. Some of the items on the menu are now re-ordered and/or re-grouped in the menu structure to improve the ease of use.
