I just bought a new iPronto and after setting up the wi-fi network, set about upgrading to the latest firmware. I'm now sitting looking at a blue screen that says "Philips" and "iPronto". Its been like like for 45 minutes now !! (I have a broadband connection). The router activity light is flickering so I guess it is doing something ......

How long does it suppose to take to download an upgrade and reboot ready for operation?

Thanks
Nigel

It takes about 5-10 minutes.
Have you tried a reset? Just push the button on the backside of your remote (pull the standard out first).
After your iPronto has started up again, check the connection first, before you try to upgrade the firmware again: Push and hold the scrollwheel for a while.Then tap on the status-tab and check if there's any signal. If "signal strength" completely white/blank then you have no connection.
Good luck,
Kees

I have checked the settings in Manual Configuration, they seem OK. I did have a WiFi aerial signal in the Status field but that has gone since I disconected & reconnected the battery. As soon as I press "Resume" the blue screen with "Philips" and "iPronto" comes back, the router shows WiFi activity.

After 1 hour nothing else seems to be happening.

:(

Did it actually do the firmware upgrade? This is done on a text screen *before* it gets to the normal iPronto booting screen. You might want to force another attempt.

It wasn't doing any upgrade - just sitting at the blue graphics screen (with Philips/iPronto logos).

Anyway, I tried again today and it has upgraded OK, without further problems (v1.5.10 installed). Don't know why it worked today - maybe there was a problem with the Philips server last night.

The only thing I did differently today was to set Fixed IP (and enter a domain name) - last night I was using DHCP. However, apart from a domain name, all the other ip addresses were identical, so, go figure.

Cheers

How old was the firmware on your unit before you tried the upgrade? Some of the original firmware versions had big problems with DHCP.

I had exact same problems trying to upgrade my firmware. In order to perform the upgrade, I had to switch my iPronto to use a static ip, then it worked fine. I then set it back to use DHCP after the upgrade.
