Bt-230 in General AV Discussion Posted March 9, 2011 Thanks Osmo, I have called Pana and was waiting for awhile so I decided to send an email. I'll see what they'll say. I'll try to play with the settings and do a reset on both tv and player. I want my ARC back!!! LoL.... =========================================================== Sounds like it might be worth a call/email to panasonic support on the matter, I guess it's possible there's a bug in the new firmware..My speakers are still in the box packed up somewhere so bit hard to setup for testing your situation unfortunately, and I haven't looked at / touched the firmware or even connected it to the net.. i'm just using it as a basic player with hdmi out to a receiver. I don't think it's a region free player but I've never tried, don't have any US only discs. If I was in your position I would probably try reverting the player and TV to factory defaults, unplugging the hdmi cables and everything from the power, then power up, re-plug the cables and go through the setup process following the manual from scratch, if you have no luck with that you should be able to get pana support.
