UNxxB7000 Firmware 1013

by -Tolik / September 29, 2009 2:47 AM PDT

There is a firmware posted on Sep 22, 2009 for the 7000 series. I'm wondering if anyone has any info as to what exact changes/updates are included with this version.

Thank you.

-Tolik,

It updates the Yahoo Widgets mainframe so that new features can be used. RallyPoint, for instance, allows you to bring up the widget while watching TV in the background, whereas before it only allowed you to watch with the picture to the side.

I'm working to get update information posted, but it's been a slow process. I appreciate your patience in advance.

Blockbuster Widget Not showing up

hollowman2212,

Blockbuster isn't showing up because the service isn't available yet.

On Blu-Ray players, the Blockbuster widget is there, but that's because for widgets to be available on Blu-Ray players, it has to be loaded in with firmware.

The TVs, on the other hand, have a widget gallery that the owners of the widget (in this case, Blockbuster) can "turn on and off" and make available through the current Yahoo interface installed on the TV. This means that yuo get instant widgets once they are launched.

As far as I know, Blockbuster is continuing to prepare for a launch of their new service, so when it is available, you'll be able to find it in the widget gallery.

Does that help?

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
