   After upgrading†the firmware to 2.11, I can no longer see an audio link in the bottom left of the screen when using web access.† MP3 files are listed but there is no longer any way of†using the flash-based music player.† Is there a way of enabling it please, or if not how do I get back to the previous firmware?

   I have a LS Live, same model for ages and since 2.06 I never upgraded because everything I want works. I know that all newer version and all actual devices do not have the audio player in Web access.

Thanks.† My mistake thinking an upgrade would improve things not remove a feature†I use!† In the absence of a response from Buffalo, do you know if I can get it back?

And please may I have a response from Buffalo?

   Good luck getting a response.† I posted a similar question a while back including a complaint about device reliabilty and my post was deleted.† It is astounding how a firmware update that was supposed to fix the PS3 DLNA issues, which it did not, could at the same time break an important piece of functionality.† I hope we get some answers soon, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Wigwam, since it appears you're from the UK, contact European support to see if they have a copy of the 2.06 firmware. Then you can force the firmware update to roll back to the previous version.

There is the 2.11 firmware for the PS3 Fix.  Just go to support>downloads.  Put in the HS-DH500GL and it will bring the firmware download up for you, just download it and make sure that you extract the files.  After that you should be able to run the LSupdater.exe, it will find the unit and you just click update.  You will lose your user config so you will have to set that back up.
