Default NWZ-A816 firmware upgrade (European)??

I've just bought an NWZ-A816 and noticed that the FW is v1.00

However, on the US site the latest FW is 2.11 but it says that's for US versions only?

So, can that FW be used on my player or are there FW revisions for the European versions?

There is no FW update for the US version - it's still @v1.00.

heya, Im afraid Sony has ignored europe on the nwz-a816's firmware. v2.0 is not available to install on european models and also if you try to install v2.1 and v2.11 it will not complete because you need v2.0 installed. Im annoyed about this because apparently there have been a few extra features added such as detailed artist info and such. :-(

What if your player still has version 1 firmware? It says you need 2 installed but I can not find where to get it. All I see is 2.10 and 2.11. And they both say you need version 2 before you can install.

Did you still try to upgrade? See if your player accepts it.

I'm afriad to try it. What benifet would I get out of it if I do upgrade? I mean besides the fact that it adds Rhapsody Channels icon in place of the clock.

My other player the 728 has that icon. I only used that channel once downloading muisc from Rhapsody. I don't thing I would ever use that feature.

No Rhapsody Channels?

I read here that Sony is now going with Napster. So maybe a firmware upgrade in the future to change the icon is coming?

No, no Rhapsody, no Napster, nothing. Just the player in all it's unused bluetooth glory. I just wish they'd do a FW update to give us the customizable themes and wallpaper. That'd be a really hot thing (plus the Rhapsody or Napster channels would be nice too).

How do you like the blutooth? I seen the Bluetooth adapter for my player at the Sony shop. I 'm not sure if I would use it. I have nothing that is bluetooth.

BT is really an unused feature for me. I only have the A829 because I managed to get it cheaper than the A729. I've never even tried a set of the BT headphones, probably never will, w/this player at least.

What are the channces for an update to provide themes and wallpaper? Or is it something that the player could not manage?

Our players could easily handle these updates, it's just that Sony probably want's us to upgrade the player is all. To sum it all up, I think, Sony WON'T give us these features in a FW update.
