Hi, I am guessing if you have forecast about new firmare release or a confirmation this product has been abandoned to itself.

There are almost two huge bugs and one audio playing feature missing (all, and I repeat all, my other player have this very basi feature, even my chinese old 4Geek):

1- playing flac audio files, the cue file is not always read correctly. The same cue is correctly read and reproduced on PC VLC.
Descriptions: at the end of every song it is truncated at the very end, muting the song fade out.
On some cue as above it is impossible to play some songs, mostly it plays correctly the first, not the 2nd, yes the 3rd, etc.(always with the defect as above).
Infos: playing the flac file it plays smootly, without any of the problem above.

2- playing flac single files in sequence, it send a huge "glitch" out from the optical SPDIF, between every songs.

3- playing flac audio throught Cue list heavili corrupt the internal HD directory and files.
I discovered thi detaching the internal HD, connecting it to PC it asks for a chkdsk and found a corrupted direcory.
FYI, the HD is a WD 2TB Green correctly formatted in advanced mode and partion checked with WD utility correctly aligned.

4- annoying function missing when playing music folders.
It doesn't play "the folder" and eventually nested folder, you have to enter each folder manually play the album, then exit, enter the next folder and again playing the next album.
Is is tremendously annoiyng and I am surprised because even my little inexpensive city car plays and the 8 yrs old chinese (4Geek) playes continuosly plays folder after folder.

I bought, after my friend siggestion, my EM7485 with R11696 preinstalled.
My friend EM7485 is two years older than mine and doesn't have the cue problem and directory problem corruption too.
FYI the flac cue and files we cross checked are exactly the same, and same internal HD.

Dear albidu,

Do you and your friend have the same Firmware version installed on the mediaplayer? Since your friend does not experience the same issues it looks to me there is a difference in the firmware version.

The device itself has not been abandoned. But since Realtek has stopped supporting the RT1186 chipset there will not be any major updates comming for this player.

Dear eccolo,

Does the EM7485 keep showing the Eminent logo constantly or does it reboot everytime?

If it keeps showing the Eminent logo constantly than it looks like the EM7485 is defective and cannot be revived with a Firmware update. In this case the player needs to be send in for repair.
If the player reboots after a while this should be able to be fixed with the Firmware update. Please make sure the USB stick is formatted properly (no other files may be stored on the USB stick and the files may not be stored in sub-folders) If possible try a different USB stick.

Dear eccolo,

Please send in the EM7485 for repair at our Service center. You can do this by returning the device to the shop where you bought it. The shop will send it in for repair.
