DVR-115D Firmware 1.18

Is this new firmware for the 115D? If so, has anyone given it a try?

It’s new…and it hasn’t been posted in the “Post New Firmware” thread yet. I don’t think many people know about this, since it wasn’t posted until ultra-recently [release/posted on the Pioneer site the 23rd, & it’s still the 22nd on this side of the world for a few more hours].

I’m thinking a bunch of people will be happy to see this and get to testing. :wink:

I didn’t know there was a new firmware thread. Sorry about that!

I have a 115D from Newegg. Which firmware is appropriate: DVR-115DXL or DVR-115D(BK,SV).

Thanks.

DVR-115D(BK,SV).

I’ve been testing this all day, I will provide some scans if anything interesting shows up.

Testing here also. Looks like Jitter is a bit more uniform. Beta has likely improved a bit but I’ll have to look at that with the Plextor. So far my scans of PIE/PIF are comparable to 1.06 and 1.13 although 1.13 seems a bit better in this area but I’ll need to do more testing to come to a real conclusion.

Quick look at TY T02@12X.

There seems to be some improvement on burning MBI Verbatim DL.
1st scan for 1.06 fw @4X
2nd scan for 1.18 fw@4X

Comparison for the 6X burns

But not too sure with the 8X burns
