  • This update addresses an issue in which the Media Center Extender stops responding (hangs) when you play a large non-WMV video over an HTTP session.
  • This update provides support for 50Hz output together with better quality for HD models. This feature applies primarily to regions that use the PAL video standard. (note: this applies via component and HDMI output only, and not VGA output)
