Uniti Core Firmware Update

We are pleased to announce that the Uniti Core 2.5 firmware update is now available. This update brings fundamental usability improvements and bug fixes, as detailed below.

New Features

Ripping - The ripping monitor now gives detailed error reporting on read errors on a track by track basis
Ripping - Detailed rip results are stored with each CD which allows the app to show error information for all ripped albums
Ripping - Detailed feedback for ripping problems
New: Ripping - If a CD fails to rip, the eject button LED flashes repeatedly to let the user know the CD has not been imported. The user has to press eject to retrieve the CD.
Ripping - Home screen "More..." link now has an option to view albums that are ripped with errors
Ripping - When a CD has finished ripping, the ripping monitor retains the results (even if the app is closed when the CD finishes the rip), allowing you to check the result of the rip
Ripping - If tracks fail to rip due to too many errors, the track is discarded and proceeds to the next track
Ripping - FLAC files are now tagged with all available descriptions, composers and conductors for a track
Metadata - Composer and conductor tags now read when scanning music into the downloads folder, network or USB drives
Concept of 'recycling' albums has been dropped. Deleted albums have now been removed from the store but not copied to the recycle bin

Improved Features

Faster and more reliable shared network discovery
Improved disc formatting, reliability and user feedback
Formatting - accurate progress reporting for NTFS and HFS+
Modifications to changes in Downloads folder picked up quicker
Firmware update more robust under poor internet conditions
Faster encoding to FLAC during rip
Improved: Database retention of data of absent music stores and flushing of data of transient USB devices - faster database response when filesystems come and go

Units occasionally crashed when generating audio signature for some files
Units occasionally crashed when large PNG images were embedded into FLAC files

Power - Some units would occasionally switch back on 6 seconds after entering standby
Metadata - Problems reading metadata from some FLAC files with unusually high number of metadata blocks

Metadata - Housekeeper now deletes artist folders with no content
Units occasionally reported the incorrect device label for some USB drives
Shares - Some network shares would fail to index
Shares - Incorrect reporting of network shares as read only
Playback - SPDIF output disabled after 5 seconds of inactivity
