    It is. There have been no new PBO firmwares (official or modified) in a long time. The PBO Core is now what we diplomatically call "mature" hardware.

    I had the same problem on several occasions. PBO's handling of files in NTFS-formatted drives is not one of its strong points.

    I connected the PBO to my PC via the mini-USB port in back, and then...
