I’m lucky I have two units to test with side by side with different firmware. Hopefully the developer see this post and find it useful for troubleshooting/fixing.

When I compare the firmwares closely there are subtle differences. I have noted the behavior of troubled firmwares:

1.5c
Signal: Constant “No signal” on TV.

1.6 to 1.7
Signal: TV Displays “No Signal” however this is not constant. The message seems to flash in and out to a blank black screen. Almost like its getting fragments of a signal however no signal information is record on the TV. Purple LED on 2x-M. (If i press ‘Input’ button the LED changes to Blue but the signal behavior is the same.)

Sound: No sound.
Picture: No picture.

1.8
Signal: TV Displays 480p@60Hz on screen with a black screen. Blue LED (I think this is a bug/glitch) on 2x-M (If i press ‘Input’ button the LED stays Blue and doesn’t go purple)
Sound: Randomly every 5 seconds or so sound will chop in for a split second enough to hear one sound.
Picture: Rarely, over the course of 10 minutes, a picture has flashed up again for a split second. Maybe twice in 10 minutes?
