Pioneer 106D question?

Discussion in 'DVD Video' started by Philip Marlow, Feb 17, 2004.

  1. I got a true Pioneer 106D with firmware rev. 1.08.
    Do you know if the firmware patch (DVR-106D v1.07 - RPC-1 + 2xDVD-R +
    12xRip.zip) can be used on the Pioneer rev.1.08 firmware?.
    The readme file on the patch mention rev. 1.07. I just want to make sure if
    this is still O.K. before I go ahead and flash the firmware.

    Thank you

    This is a good site to check for Pioneer patches.

    I would urge you to avoid flashing and leave things as they are. I've flashed mine to
    1.07 and have burnt 20-25% coasters using Ritek G04s. Neither do I notice any difference
    in rip speed.

    Sorry (my brain is dying too) I should have said that my 106 (firmware 1.05) functioned
    flawlessly until I flashed up to 1.07 (yes you may well ask why I bothered!). It's
    possible that my problems, which seem to have begun with the new firmware, are all mere
    coincidence but it's a little unsettling anyway.

  5. Thank you for the clarification. I decided that until I hear from somebody
    who has actually apply the 1.07 patch to the 1.08 firmware with success, I
    will not be flashing. I don't want to take any chances.
    Thanks
