MED500X Firmware V1.2.2a - 18 November 2009
« on: November 18, 2009, 09:34:26 am »
Hi all Mede8ers

We picked up some core issues with the new SDK and we need to hold this update until these issues are resolved. A report has been sent to Realtek and we have been led to believe that our concerns will be addressed. As we do not know how long it will take to get V1.2.3 back on track we have decided to release a interim version based on the old SDK so that the users can continue to enjoy their Mede8ers.
