Got this player in a joblot of faulty items form Ebay, it's working perfectly but some videos have green smears suggesting to me the firmware is out of date.

Anybody know what player this is and who made it? Perhaps point me in the direction of updated FW.

Thanks everyone.

Well someone must have had a play with this on as it's carrying a Toshiba 40GB HDD inside, strangely it's partitioned 20GB accessible for content and the other 20GB as an external HDD. I can access the full 40GB through the file manager on board though. The screen is most definitely 4"+

Thanks for the info, I'll have a poke around the forums.

Used to happen on my resized xvid mpeg1 videos I used to encode for my insignia. Basically might mean it can't resize the improperly encoded video.

Are you sure it is carrying a Toshiba 40GB HDD inside, cause that would be sweet if that happened, but most ebay stuff is hacked and faked storage size.

few years old that one now, it prob is a gen drive in there, there were not many HDD players made and were dropped pretty quick, as this seemed to be the way the industry went, if its Newsmy then dont count on firmware updates, they are renowned for being totally crap in that area

but, for a job lot and it works you may just have to work round the faults

It's not a K8+, it's an M8000+, which carried up to a 160GB hard drive.

Here's Newman's (Chinese-language) product page; the second tab is the full specs...no English product page:
M8000+

something similar from PCOnline:
M8000+

The only firmware I could see after a quick check is 080401, which pretty much tells you that 2008 was the last update...here's the link to PCHome:
firmware 080401

NOTE: It's NOT the big, blue boxes with the down arrow...the links are on the left side of the page with little green down arrows...and skip the "FlashGet" one at the top; the other 4 are OK.

Interesting that this player apparently runs a Texas Instruments processor...just a wee bit before the much-ballyhooed RAmos DaVinci experiment.

Totally see the difference. Thanks for the correction. I just had the picture to go by and now I see the slight differences. The poster probably appreciates that you found exactly what he has.

Yeah I've opened it up as there was some dust behind the screen, defo 40GB. I've seen the green smear on PC as an FFD codec error, so assumed it was the same thing. overall I'm really happy with it I only paid £15 for the lot (some broken digital cameras and 2 broken DS)

Thanks to everyone who helped ID the machine, I've not had a pmp before and would defiantly like something similar and smaller as this thing is a bit large.
