I see that DSM 750 is out with new firmware...hopefully it will be extended to other Upnp DLINK AV products. Any clues?? even if its limited to 1080i/720p for 510!

Hello,

Please,
Read this topic http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=5080.0

It's explained everything there.

It should be clear for you about capabilities of DSM-510 and capability of our moderator and D-Link.

I did check other thread and did confirm Sigma Designs chip specifications--

EM8620L Series
Digital Media Processors

The EM8620L family provides highly-integrated solutions for products requiring standard-definition and high-definition MPEG-4.10 (H.264), SMPTE 421M (VC-1), WMV9, MPEG-4.2 and MPEG-2 decoding.

Incorporating flexible, advanced audio/video processing, the EM8620L family enables cost-effective solutions for consumer products such as network players, IPTV set-top boxes, networked DVD players, portable media players and HDTVs.

So technically its not limitation of chip (as mentioned in other thread link) but the new firmware IS needed which can extend 510 and rectify connection timeout issues as new firmware for 750 is out.

510 is very versatile Upnp AV product and should evolve. If new firmware for 750 can come, one would assume that 510 would too. Btw, 510 is still in market so users do expect new firmware.

Sorry, but this chip is used in DSM-510:
EM8620L-LF

Since it's pretty hard to find data sheet on the web, I uploaded official one onto my site:
http://www.arcanus.users.t-com.me/EM8620L.pdf

On the data sheet it's clearly written that EM8620L chip family are not capable of playing H.264 video.
