Hi all,

Appreciate some help here!

I've just installed the firmware update for my Denon A11 (Asia version of 5900) from http://www.audioholics.com/firmware/index.php. Previously, my player can play multi-region dvds, but after the update, it can only play Code 3 dvds. This is odd, coz i expected the player to play only Region 1 dvds after the update (as indicated in the website).

Does anyone know where i can download the Region 1, or even better multi-region firmware? Most of my dvds are Code 1

Thanks!

this is more a question about your question than an answer so sorry if it's not helpful!

i was under the impression that it is not wise to install a US firmware onto a Euro/Asian player as it may cause other issues. i read of someone who's RGB scart output was disabled as a result of this because the US version of that particular player only had component outputs and not RGB scart.

are you saying that installing the 5900 firmware on the A11 has caused no other problems at all, other than the multi-region issue? also, is the firmware you downloaded the ESS-6 version? (ie. has the menu speed and subtitle pop-up fixes).

cheers.

Yes, the version i downloaded is the Ess-6 version which fixes the menu speed and pop-up fixes

Everything else works fine, just that now it's no longer multi-region and can only play Code 3!

I don't know where you will find it posted on the interent, Denon guard their firmware (particularly multi region) tightly.

You are best finding your friendly local Denon dealer (perhaps where you have purchased in the past & likely to in the future) who should carry a copy of the disc.
