I just came by a new region free firmware for these players. I is dated in february and brings a new menu item, the possibility to set the angle symbol on or off. I updated my DVD 25 and it went normally as with the earlier fw versions. The player's still region free and works OK. In courtesy of a German HT guru Zaphod: His H/K DVD player firmwares PPS_RC0_05-02-2004.zip is the one I used.
