What is the most waited update on L4.01 as mine works flawlessly. Never had HDMI issues. However from time to time I do have audio losses and I have to remove the HDMI from the Vip622 and reinsert it and the audio comes back. Just shaking it does not make it work. Removing the HDMI from the plasma and reinserting it also does not fix the audio problem. (...)
Huh? You state you never had HDMI issues, but then in the next sentence you indicate that you periodically have to remove the HDMI cable and reinsert it to resolve loss of audio. That sure sounds like an HDMI issue to me, but actually what most folks are waiting on is Dolby Digital 5.1 audio via HDMI. Obviously the HDMI hardware issues (i.e. fragile connector) won't be resolved with a software update.
The audio loss many of us are experiencing is the choppy-audio via optical, where it drops out over and over again briefly. There's also the problem where one tries to pause live content, and the receiver tells one that it's paused, but then when one resumes playback, it's as if one didn't pause it at all.
