    Sorry for posting again so soon, but I am currently updating the firmware on the P3P and it's been making an awful sounding beeping noise for 50 mins. I read it should only take 25 minutes.

    What should I do!? Thank you greatly for the help!

    Yes, sounds like morse code, kind of a scratchy rythmic beep...but it's been doing this for almost an hour. Something wrong?

    Never heard that sound...but I powered it down and then checked the .txt file on the SD card it said Success....So I am assuming it updated correctly...we shall see.
