Purchased a network media player NSZ GS7 earlier this year. Stopped working several months ago as the chrome browser (and probably the adobe flashplayer) is out of date. According to sony, this can only be fixed when they update the firmware for the product. The last firmware update was early April. No one seems to know when or if this will be fixed.
How is this acceptable behaviour by Sony? Why wouldn't Sony immediately respond to Chrome and Adobe updates?
The Adobe Flash player is built directly into the the Google Chrome Browser and enabled by default. Its not possible to upgrade the latest version of the Adobe Flash player used by the Google Chrome browser.
What issue are you having with the player right now?
I am not able to watch any streaming videos. No television station internet videos, no netflix, no yoga online. My media player is currently as useful as a brick. Sometimes there is a message that identifies that the chrome brower is out of date (version 11 rather than 26?) but most of the time the video just simply doesn't load.
Since you are unable to stream any internet content or the video does not load, you have to make sure that the player is connected to the internet. The player should meet the minimum speed requirement of 2.5 mbps or higher for standard definition video and 10 mbps or higher for high definition video. Go to www.2wire.com to check the speed of you network. Refer to the link below for more information.
Follow the steps below to troubleshoot the player.
Reboot the player. Just simultaneously press and release the CTL+SHIFT+BACKSPACE/DELETE buttons.
If the issue is still unresolved, try to reset the player to factory default settings. 1. On the keypad remote control, press the Home button (house icon). 2. Select the All Apps icon. 3. Select the Settings icon. 4. Under Settings, select Privacy & Safety and then press ENTER. 5. In the Privacy & safety menu, navigate to Factory data reset. 6. Press the ENTER button. 7. Press the ENTER button again.
Just follow the on-screen instructions to finish the initial set up.
The Adobe flash player version of the unit is 10.2.164 and the Google chrome version is 3.2-17544
