Updated my CS406 to ver462 successfully, enabled hibernation, so far so good. Need to observe for a day or two.

Hey Franklin,

Just upgraded my DS-207 with almost no errors.
Only thing was with the iTunes-server.

After the upgrade I could connect to it, but nothing would play.
I then removed all the files from the /music-share.
No update. All the files were still presented in iTunes.
Disabled and enabled the service to no avail.

The answer was to disable the service, delete the share, reboot the DS and then enable the service again.
This created a new share and now it updates again.

Still with the tag-bug, but hey, Rome wasn't built in a day.

I updated my CS406 yesterday from firmware 382 to 462 and it seems to work fine.

I havn't tried all the new features (I don't use iTunes, for instance) but PhotoStation2, FTP w/shares/permissions and the UPn'P works as expected and AFAIK there is no change in performance.

Upgrade my DS207 also to 462. Most worked, but
my FTP does not work behind NAT or firewall.
I will check this evening if it works on the local LAN.
