New Bug in FW 2.23
- Navigating Network folders takes a very long time. Work around: not much of a work around, but can downgrade FW back to 2.20 to avoid the problem. We'll need telnet access to the box running FW 2.23 to see what's causing it, unfortunately it's not possible any more in 2.23.

Bug partially fixed in 2.23
FW 2.20 and older - Problem with thumbnails for network files, never worked since the first release.
- Partially fixed in FW 2.23. However, it does not use thumbnails for folders, only files. So navigating the folders still a chore (i.e. each network folder only shows its name and a generic icon). Each movie is displayed with thumbnail, but the JPG file itself is also shown! so it looks like a double thumbnail, but it's not. Switching to Menu->Show Movies (to avoid showing JPG thumb) does not work, it will reverse to plain generic thumbs in this mode.

FW 2.23 -- New bug in FAT+ iPhone app
In keyboard mode, the OK key sometime got stuck in a repeat loop! for example, if the "a" letter is highlighted on the on-screen keyboard, and we press "OK", a repeated string of "aaaaaaaa" appear on the textbox, and the iPhone app display shows that this "a" key is transmittted repeatedly (LED light flashing like crazy). This problem would be alleviated if there is a way to clear the tex box (provide a "clear" key on the iPhone app keyboard) so that it can overide the repeat OK and clearing the text box.The only way to stop it now is to exit the iPhone app.
If available, the "clear" key is extremely handy when users are presented with the usual "Realtek_guest" loging prompt.

FW 2.23 - Thumbnails for local USB files in Browse mode
- Partially implemented in FW 2.23. However, it does not use thumbnails for folders, only files. So navigating the folders still a chore (i.e. each folder only shows its name and a generic icon). Each movie is displayed with thumbnail, but the JPG file itself is also shown! so it looks like a double thumbnail, but it's not. Switching to Menu->Show Movies (to avoid showing JPG thumb) does not work, it will reverse to plain generic thumbs in this mode. This capability works the same way for Network files.
- This seems like a bug in the way thumbnails are created in Browse mode for both local USB files and Network files.

I don't see in this thread any mention of this so....
V2.23 Seems to have fixed the Netflix problem of turning the FAT+ back on.
Here's what USED to happen, turn on the FAT+, watch a Netflix movie, exit Netflix, turn OFF FAT+, wait about 30 seconds and FAT+ turns itself back ON.
Well, mine don't do dat no mo! Yippie!

Hi again. Was just wondering if any1 has any idea yet on when Seagate is likely to release the next firmware upgrade? One is definitely due given the plethora of bugs that exist in the current one!

I've been wondering the same thing. I stupidly upgraded. I had no issues in the earlier firmware, but I figured, hey why not?
Well, I don't have any serious issues now, but when I open my movies folder on my USB drive it takes forever. Maybe 35-45 seconds to load the folder contents. There are around 160-180 files in the folder and about a dozen sub-folders. All other folders open quickly, just the big main movies folder. Previously it took maybe 5-8 seconds to load the folder.
So question, how do you roll back your firmware to an earlier version?
