Sean,

Here's how my upgrade went:

Updated from CVS
Re-started slimserver
- player lost connection
- player reconnected automatically
- player showed "Hold brightness" prompt
Held Brightness
- firmware upgraded cleanly
- player rebooted
- player displayed message about setup
- player began to connect to wireless network
- after 10 seconds player rebooted
- player displayed message about setup
- player began to connect to wireless network
- after 10 seconds player rebooted
- player displayed message about setup
- player began to connect to wireless network
- player connected to wireless network almost immediately
- player showed date and time

I'm now listening to music with firmware v38.

I've seen this behaviour before when upgrading the firmware; is this normal?

R.
