Firmware revision 2.10 for the 788T has been removed from availability. This is due to a reported behavior of audible artifacts in recorded material and the possibility of a connected CL-8 and CL-9 becoming temporarily unresponsive. Firmware revision 2.03 does not exhibit this behavior and units running 2.10 should be reverted to 2.03 if this behavior is experienced. When a resolution is available, new firmware will be made available to re-introduce the features and fixes present in 2.10. (more…)
