dsm-520 no longer playing xvid
« on: July 28, 2008, 07:04:04 AM »

Upgraded firmware to 1.06 this weekend. Played with the active feature most of the day, but that evening went to play files stored on  my computer. Every one said, "File not supported". I bought this thing to be able to stream those files, not to have a slower way to play poor res youtube movies on my 52" hdtv. Can anyone help either with a fix for new firmware or a way to downgrade to the previous version?

FWIW, I have the 1.06 f/w on my DSM and it plays xvid encoded avi files fine. However, when I tried xvid/mpeg2-ts or xvid/mp4 it would stall (single video frame, but audio would play). I attributed that to my lack of understanding of how to successfully convert mkv files to something the DSM can support.
