Re: Why do people dislike Firmware updates??
[QUOTE=Lotus;7005]Because unless the player or device is continuously connected to a source for the update it is impossible to expect the average consumer to do update their device.
My DVR gets updated constantly without even asking or telling me. My 360 tells me before a game is played. That's cool both are connected to a source (satelite, internet) all the time so it's not a big deal.
If the manufacturers would make it as simple as leaving the device plugged into a phone line all night and the updates were automatic and the consumer had to do nothing or just hit a button "yes" or "no" to the update it wouldn't be a problem. The update on my satelite receiver and PS3 are no bother to me.
