Well, I've got bad news for you.. it's not I'm afraid. Some Denon's services (due to licensing and different law) are not available for europe market and vice versa, hence firmwares for the same model have different size (in MB) and checksum. There used to be website, where you could download FW, flashing tools etc, but it has been taken down couple of month ago.

so what kind of company denon is that you cant get firmware for your model? I WILL NEVER BUY DENON IN MY LIFE AGAIN....it was expensive and I cant even update firmware without breaking it.....GARBAGE...maybe I will make a youtube video how I smash my denon to pieces if I dont resolve this....
