Try a DivX movie from a disc, memory sticks are not very fast, they are just convenient.

My Philips Htl2160 soundbar just quit working after I tried to upgrade the firmware! It won't light up that it's getting power! I disconnected everything and reconnected, but still nothing! Any ideas?

Updating firmware is dangerous as it configures the part before the software loads. If the firmware update fails or the power cuts it renders the item inoperable as you have found. You will have contact Phillips for either a replacement unit or for a zipped firmware file to reload again.

A software program called Philips Device Manager enables you to update the firmware on

your device if a new firmware is available on your PC. Install Philips Device Manager from the supplied CD or download the latest version from (see above link for product specific page).

5.1 Manually verify whether your firmware is up

to date

2 Launch Philips Device Manager from Start > Programs > Philips Digital Audio

Player > SA31XX > Philips SA31XX Device Manager.

3 Make sure you are connected to the internet.

4 Click Update.

> Philips SA31XX Device Manager will check whether a new firmware is available on the

Internet and install it on your player.

5 When Update completed appears on the screen, click OK and disconnect the player.
