My BDP-Pi is exhibiting some bizarre behavior after this update, in terms of files (audio performance is fine).

At least one of my folders seems "locked", music can be played, but when I transfer a new file from my computer, via Network connection, to this same-named folder on the external hard drive feeding the Pi, and then hit "update" it turns blue, for a few seconds, as if updating, but the file is nowhere to be seen on Media Player. I can see the file in its folder on the hard drive, but nowhere to be seen on same-named Media Player folder. But if I transfer to a different folder on the hard drive, the file shows up in that folder on Media Player. If I re-transfer the file somewhere else on the hard drive, the file on Media Player may or may not transfer, but if it does, the previous location may or may not be erased on Media Player; it shows as an empty file.

Genre, Artist, Album, etc folders just contain a bunch of numbers and nothing playable. I do not use Bryston DB; in fact I'm not even sure what that does. But before the update those folders contained identifiable music file folders.

Edited to add: Artist view is all just a bunch of numbers. I just copied a new folder to my main music folder on the hard drive. It did not appear on Media Player! However, when I copied it to, as an experiment to another folder, it appeared in that folder, even though I don't want it there (different artist). What is going on

Update: I tried a factory reset and that just made matters worse. The unit has failed and only the red power light comes on. Back to Bryston for repair you go.

I'm having similar results after upgrading the firmware, with songs and albums unplayable and simply a string of random characters and numbers in the player interface. I use the Bryston DB, tried rebuilidng, but it kept failing.

Any resolution on your end?

I just got notification from Fedex that my BDP-Pi will be returning from repair on Thursday 10/4/18. I will post here what the repair order receipt says was fixed. Bryston customer service has been polite and accommodating, but I can't help but think there are some flaws in the Manic Moose firmware, even if my problem turns out to be a hardware issue.

My problem was "Micro SD Card Corrupted"

Anyway, I'm glad to have the unit back.
