Nach dem FW-Update auf 1.3a hängt der Pearl PX-8595-675. Es erscheint nur noch der  Startbildschirm Auvisio.

Gibt es sowas wie einen HW-Reset?

From here I can not see what steps you did, when things went wrong etc.
So you have to provide more information.
Was 1.3a already working or not?

Die FW lief zunächst einwandfrei. Beim Aufruf von einigen Internetradiosendern konnte keine Taste mehr genutzt werden. Es half nur das Ausschalten des Gerätes. Nach dem 3. Ausschalten kam nur noch der Startbildschirm von Auvisio.

Hi!
For my device (Pearl PX-8595-675) it is now the same as desribed!!
After installing FW 1.3a it works a day (it was switch on and of sereval times).
On the next day already the first switch on failed.
Only the Auvisio-starting picture is coming and I am able to switch it of - not more.
Any trail to connect by USB failed (tried XP and Win7-PC).
The trail to connect by WLan failed now (on the first day it worked! I have seen the media and SD card directory).
Please help to install the FW again or the original one to start again (but I have no copy of it because I do not know the right software for download this out of the device memory). intira

Hallo William,

ich denke, ich versuche diesen Thread in Deutsch wieder zu beleben.

Du hattest auf meine letzte Frage im englischen Thread (Forum: Device: SkyTC - KMP510/Topic: Firmware 1.3a feedback) nicht mehr geantwortet oder besser es waren zu viele andere Aspekte aufgetaucht. Hier ist wahrscheinlich der richtige Thread. Im anderen kann ich eigentlich mit einem Tag Erfahrung nicht viel beisteuern.

und vielleicht lässt sich unter diesem Betreff noch eine Lösung für die wenigen (?) Auvisio-Hänger finden?

 

Hallo Jo54achim, läuft dein IPTV-2335 wieder? phantasm, dapo2000 und JuSch (aus  Topic: Pearl PX-8595-675) scheinen auch noch nicht wieder Freude am Gerät zu haben.

Wie gesagt hat mein Pearl PX-8595-675 nach FW-Update zu FW1.3a einen Tag gelaufen - sah deutlich besser aus als die originale Software, aber am nächsten Tag lief´s nicht mehr.

Es kommt nur noch mit einer kurzen Unterbrechung (dunkler Bildschirm für viertel Sekunde) nur das "auvisio" Boot Logo nach Einschalten.

Wenn man lange genug den AUS-Schalter drückt lässt sich das Gerät wieder ausschalten - mehr nicht.

 

Den “fs_fwrec"-file-Trick auf SD card (2 verschiedene getestet) und das Drücken verschiedener Tastenkombinationen bei Power-On hat nicht funktuoniert.

Das Radio ging nie in der FW-Bootmodus.

 

William, wäre nett, wenn du uns bei der Reaktivierung unterstützen könntest

oder - falls es keine Hoffnung mehr gibt - kurz postest, dass ich es in die Tonne kloppen kann.

Beste Grüße Intira

Hi, Sorry I have been a bit overcrowded with work and other things.
In any case you should not throw it away. They can be fixed in most cases.
There are multiple modes for the failsafe. Will look into what to do next as soon as possible. Need to find a bit of time to work it out..

Vielen Dank für die hoffnungsvolle Info, William!
Dann warte ich es ab, bis du dich meldet. Ich muss mich nur in etwas einer Woche entscheiden, ob ich ein vor Kurzem geliefertes
IPdio mini behalte oder nicht (gefällt mir eigentlich nicht so gut wie die 1,3a-Oberfläche, aber es läuft...).
Ich melde mich wohl am WoEnde nochmals mit vielleicht neuen Infos vom Surfen zum Problem (habe aber nicht viel Hoffnung...).
Grüße Intira

P.s. Nochmals an die Deutsch-Östereichische Problemrunde (ich hoffe, ich habe alle korrekt identifiziert; das Pearl-teil wird ja eigentlich nur in dieser Region vertrieben?):
Läuft euer Auvisio/Pearl wieder? Auf Original oder 1.3a-Firmware? Intressantes zu berichten zum Recovery für den Thread? Intira

Hallo,

ich würde mich sehr freuen, wenn jemand eine Original-Firmware für das IPTV-2335 bereitstellen könnte.
Mein Gerät läuft zwar mit der 1.3a, aber die fehlende Unterstützung für UPnP, die Wiedergabe ganzer Ordner und die fehlende Sortierung von Dateien innerhalb eines Ordners machen sie für meine Zwecke ungeeignet. Leider habe ich kein Backup der Firmware gemacht...

Was ist der "fs_fwrec"-file-Trick?

Hi!
"fs_fwrec"-file-Trick hatte ich in einem der threads gelesen...

Ein leeres File mit dem Namen
fs_fwrec (!ohne Extension) auf die SD-card kopieren.
Diese vor dem Einschalten in den Slot vom Pearl gesteckt soll das Gerät in den FW-Boot zwingen - wie gesagt, klappt bei mir nicht.
Bzgl. Original-FW, wenn ich gewusst hät´wie, dann hätte ich es vorher gesichert ...
Ich kann dir nicht sagen, wo es im Netz zu finden ist, aber der folgende thread könnte dir helfen, es zu finden
http://www.eevblog.com/forum/projects-designs-and-technical-stuff/hacking-the-hmt350-internet-radio/?PHPSESSID=3102afe1abf34802b795722ff6486d66
Für mich war das zu kompliziert und man braucht natürlich noch ein originales Gerät, damit man mitschnuppern kann beim Auto-FW-Update, wenn es nach der Firmware sucht. Intira

Hallo zusammen,

ich habe mittlerweile aufgegeben und das Gerät zurückgeschickt.

Ich warte jetzt auf die eventuellen Fragen von PEARL.

Ansonsten bekomme ich ein neues Gerät.

Danke für alle Infos

Dann viel Glück, dass es problemlos und schnell klappt!!
Halte uns doch bitte auf dem Laufenden. Da bisher die Unterstützung für eine Restauration meines Gerätes ausbleibt, wäre ich schon interessiert, zu hören, ob es mit dem Ersatz klappt. Auch ich muss ja noch über Alternativen nachdenken, wenn derBoot nicht klappt und bisher kenne ich niemanden, der die Original-FW aus dem Gerät gerettet hat oder per Download organisiert hat.
TeuTeu - Intira

Gerade fällt mir auf, dass mein  Pearl PX-8595-675 genau die gleiche Original Firm/Hardware-Config. (V1.8.6 Model KMP510.4.0 PX8595 Typ RM003) hat wie von JuSch geposted. Immer noch neu und unbekannt für dich (?). Kann das der Grund für die beiden Abstürze sein (kleine Inkompatibilität?)?
Leider haben bis auf den Link http://www.eevblog.com/forum/projects-designs-and-technical-stuff/hacking-the-hmt350-internet-radio/?PHPSESSID=3102afe1abf34802b795722ff6486d66

Hi! nun als reply die Nachfrage, ob sich für V1.8.6 Model KMP510.4.0 PX8595 Typ RM003 eine Lösung findet, die Firmware (Original=>wo zu finden? oder 1.3a) nochmals aufzuspielen, wenn nur der Pearl-Auvision-Bootscreen erscheint und der SD-card-trick (fs_fwrec-File) nicht funktioniert.

Hi!
Für mein Gerät (Pearl PX-8595-675) ist genau wie von JuSch beschrieben!!
Nach Installieren von FW 1.3a hat es einen Tag schön getan (ist auch immer wieder gestartet nach Aus/Ein-Schalten).
Am nächsten Tag klappte das nicht mehr.
Nur Auvisio-start-Bildschirm (Auvision-Icon) erschient und ich kann wieder abschalten- mehr nicht.
Die USB-Connect-Versuche funktionierten auch nicht (vorher wurde das Gerät erkannt, wenn auch eine unformatierte Speichereinheit (habe XP and Win7-PC getestet).
Der Versuch eines connects by WLan funktioniert nun auch nicht mehr (am ersten Tag funkt. es! Ich konnte SD-card directory und internen Speicher sehen/Draufkopieren).
Ich bräuchte Hilfe, die Original-FW oder nochmals 1.3a aufzuspielen. intira

William, darf ich an das Auvisio-Boot-Problem erinnern.
Das
Pearl PX-8595-675 liegt nun seit 2 Wochen tot herum. Gibt es eine Chance oder ist die neue V1.8.6 Model KMP510.4.0 PX8595 Typ RM003 ein unlösbares Problem?
Langsam wäre ich ja zufrieden, wenn ich die Originalfirmware zumindest wieder zum Laufen bekäme...

Hi Intira,
I cleaned up your posts and put everything together. Was too hard to follow while it was spread around the place.

Anyway, the firmware itself seems to be fine and working. Thats your experience as well. As it workd for a day and even allowed power up/down multiple times..
So what is wrong then, well.. that is hard to say without having the device to look at here. However, I do have a firmware dump from your device model. This allows me to check some things.
What I see is that most of the files are the same as on the Envivo. In fact, 95% of the files are identical.

The main program of the offiicial firmware is different, but that is normal as this is created on the fly for every model the manufacturer creates and it has the model name and number difference to start with.
I even disassembled and check some of the critical parts of the main program and other than the killer bug that is present in all versions of the official firmware, I do not see anything special yet.
In fact, the code looks a bit too close to the Envivo code. The RM003 and .4 in the KMP string indicate a newer memory controller. The code should take that into consideration...
This is a reason why it is more likely that the official firmware fails rather than the ListenLive firmware.
Of course it is possible that you got a bad model or that the manufacturer screwed up with the design.. (believe me, thats not the first time.. they once send out an online firmware update that many people accepted and the firmware was faulty.. after the update all devices were dead.. this forced them to release a recovery image for that particalr model.. so they do screw up!)  Anyway, I would be more happier if it is a problem in the Listenlive firmware as we can fix that easily!

So, what are the steps to take..
1) try the Failsafe mode. (boot the device with an SD card inserted and on that card the file  "fs_fwrec")  
you already did and it did not work. this indicates that the listenlive firmware is not being started!

2) press the two outer buttons on the top of the device and keep them pressed, then insert the USB power connector..still keeping the two buttons pressed.. 
Wait for a minute to see what happens..
->a black screen or just the Auvisio screen means that the recovery mode is not installed.
-> However, if you get a message that asks you for "recovery files" then we know the recovery mode is installed and "most" of your device is in such a shape that it can start..(we dont have the recovery files, so that wont help us right away but at least it tells a bit about the hardware/software status. We could try to get recovery files from Pearl..

3) Next step is actually to determine what to do next. there are a few options First question is probably about warranty.. do you still have warranty.. and is it properly arranged or not..
Unless there is a real hardware failure I can recover the device with a special interface, the device needs to be opened for that, which is rather easy with the Pearl's. At most it would cost some time and shipping it back and forth.. (I can write ListenLive firmware as well as the official 1.8.6.
Anyway, knowing the results of step 2 also shows what is still on the device and if it can be seen as not original..

~William

Hi William,
for
certainty I did it again with the fs_fwrec-File. This time on another little SD-card (32mB instead of 2GB and ONLY this file). It din´t workagain!

* Directly starting by pressing power on (cable powered before) => only reaction (including little difference): Starting in the auvisio screen – after 3 sek. short black screen – again auvisio screen for forever (waiting 10 min.. For ending the trail pressing the Poweroff-button => switches off.

* double-ext.-button-press-power-on-strategy => starting in the auvisio screen – NO black screen-“flash” after 3 sek.  – nothing for 1 minute (during pressing the two buttons). Again nothing more for ever (waiting 10 min.). Pressing the Poweroff-button => switches off.

Part 3: Your question about warranty: I bought the device 4 week ago - under this aspect – yes. But I think not because I made an firmware-update with an unofficial firmware (waiting for news from Jo54achim).

 And what do your mean with “properly arranged“? I didn’t open it so far – is that what you ask for?

I hope I didn’t forget anything of relevance… Regards, Intira

Ok. So that shows there is NO recovery mode installed on the Auvisio.
The design originall has a dual boot option.
- Normal boot loads a normal kernel + normal file system and gives the known menu and allows you to play music etc.
- Alternate boot loads an alternate kernel + alternate file system and gives a screen that asks for recovery files. Here it can "refresh" the normal kernel and normal file system. This is what we call the recovery mode.
We know that both the Envivo and Xoro have the recovery mode. However, the Arnova does not have it. Now it looks like the Auvisio also does not have it. I say "looks like" because at this point we can not be sure if it is a software or hardware problem.

Part 3:

Your question about warranty: I bough the device 4 week ago under this aspect – yes. But I thin not because I made an firmwareupdate with an unofficial firmware (waiting for news from Jo54achim).

Auvisio has no way to see what firmware was installed on the device! In fact, they can not even recover the device and ship it back. Their only option is to replace it.

Quote:

And what do your mean with “properly arranged“? I didn’t open it so far – is that what you ask for?

Some people bought the device while travelling.. so the device is new and officially has warranty but to claim warranty they have to make a big effort. If it is easy to claim the warranty then it is properly arranged for you

Anyway, alternatively I can open the device and flash the firmware that way. This requires removing 9 screws on the bottom of the device (4 are under the rubber feet) But if there is a hardware failure there is not much I can do.

Quote:

p.s. and a last question beside: is it an automatism which “5 LATEST FORUM POSTS” are standing in the listenlive-index. I saw my replies or posts seldomly there after writing.

It is automated but only posts from moderators and myself show up there right away. This was done to prevent spam from showing up on the front page. You message could show up there after it has been approved but it is also possible that there were newer messages that make your message not show up there anymore.

Hi William, thanks for fast feedback!
So it is on you too to decide ....  if I exchange it through warrenty we will not get more information about this machines. I don´t think there is a hardware problem, so it is more the question of time - do you want to learn more about the Auvisio?

Kind regards Intira

Well, I own a Pearl PX-8595 auvisio IPTV-2335 (RM003 KMP510.4.0) which runs 1.3a for some weeks now.

As I already posted, I am desperately waiting for 1.4 and might also be able to give you the information needed on this new model. However, I would not want to open the device at this point. Feel free to contact me if you need additional information, a beta tester or help translating to German.

I already contacted Pearl and asked them where I can find the current firmware version for the device but they claim there is no firmware update at this time.
Wonder what the online update of the original firmware installed then...

I am testing all the options of 1.4 now to see if everything works and no unexpected things happen.
Right now there is a problem with playing video from UPnP. Audio from UPnP works perfect though.
Probably need another few days before it can be released..

Testing is important and with the bunch of new features I guess it consumes some time...
However, if UPnP works (or at least playing whole directories in alphabetical order), I guess it is well worth the wait

Right now, a full directory of audio files are indeed played as they are listed/presented by the UPnP server side. (twonky seems to give various options, like ablbum, genre, alphabetical, folder etc)
Also random play mode is present. So, at the very miminum that will be in the release version.

I still want to get video files working similar as well..But if this is going to take too much time I might go for just audio files support. Tere is so much new and so many fixes that it is worth a release.
I would like to release the upcoming version in the next few days.

You got me wrong: I was thinking of playing a whole network directory (not via UPnP but network shares)
Sure enough, UPnP would be even better as my Twonky powered NAS supports a lot more categorizations.

Thanks for all the effort you invest to make the devices more powerful and comfortable!

Playing a whole network directory is done with the play/pause button in version 1.3a.
This works (the firmware uses CIFS) but some people have issues seeing contents via network shares.
No issues here on my 4 NAS drives. Most content (music/video) is stored on unprotected shares.
But for sure there are issues with Win7 and some Linux boxes.

Alternatively the upcoming release has upnp support. We will see how well it works with each and every upnp device out there but here it plays faster than CIFS/Samba.
It recognizes my Zyxel and QNAP NAS (Twonky) including the various genre/folder/sorting options Twonky has avaiable.

Right now the upcomng release is mostly done.. few more days of testing I hope..

Thanks for the information about playing whole directories. I was not aware of this feature. However, when I tested it, the busy indicator showed up and nothing else happened for quite some time. Pressing Exit on the remote showed the parent directory.

I guess in 1.4 directory contents, i.e. files and subdirectories, will be listed alphabetically? Currently, it is very difficult to find an existing entry as they are displayed unsorted.

For 1.4 the following applies:

UPnP: The directories show up in the way they are presented by the server side..  This in most cases seems to be with sorting options on "Album", "Artist", "Folder" etc. etc.  Folder contents appear to be sorted with Twonkymedia as a server.
Samba: no sorting, files are requested as directory contents and shown in the same they they are passed on by the Samba server side.

Additional remarks:
UPnP works. However, it is likely that there are compatibility issues with some server models. When looking at projects like XBMC it is clear that there are servers that are using the UPnP specifications too loosely. Since this will be the first version with UPnP support we will collect what models work and what not. Possibly fixing support for some of them in the release after 1.4.

Samba (3.6.1) works. However, it does not work properly with windows 7 systems. I need to setup a Win7 system and test with that to see if it can be fixed. Also there might be some issues with specific NAS models.

Improving UPnP and Samba/CIFS is possible but will take time. Since there are many other fixes and additions I think it is good to do a release anyway.

Hallo,
gibt es irgendwelche Neuigkeiten über das auvisio Pearl PX-8595-675?
Bei mir lief LL 1.3a problemlos, beim updaten auf 1.4 ist was schiefgegangen, ich sehe nur noch den auvisio-Bildschirm.
Jetzt habe ich einen schönen Briefbeschwerer...

Gruß

Did you try the failsafe method?
file "fs_fwrec" on the SD card and boot the device with the SD inserted

Hallo Jo54achim,
das hört sich gut an und gibt Hoffnung - in mehrer Hinsicht.
* Zum einen hat meine Leiche genau die gleiche Spezifikation und
* da du dich wieder im Thread meldest, hast du  es nicht aufgegeben (wie leider einige andere aus der deutschen Szene)
und willst vielleicht auf die Software von William wechseln vielleicht/besser erst, wenn ein sicheres BUp der Firmware gemacht ist?
Ich bereue meine Update-Impulsivität schon ein bischen... (aber deine Info gibt Hoffnung für einen Umtausch).
Ich hoffe, du wartest noch ein bischen mit dem FW-Update, damit ein verfügbares Gerät noch die Original-FW hat, denn nach Infos von William, sollte es machbar sein, die FW zu sichern. Details fehlen mir aber noch für das offline-Projekt.
Dann hätten wir eine gute Chance für einige Interessenten mit abgeschossenen Pearls....

Grüße Intira

I have a backup of the Pearl RM003..
However, a backup is only useful as long as you can access the device.
To really have a backup method you need access to the recovery which is deactivated on most brands.
On top of that, it is the original software that causes massive problems with flash corruption.
This does not happen with the Listenlive code.
I am now able to repair allmost all of the RM001 and RM002 models and am working on adding the recovery to all of them.
