    just got off the phone from John Lewis High Wycombe having called to order an LG42PX11. It seems the version in the showroom and in the warehouse runs the 3. Firmware. Is this a branch by branch affair and worth searching elsewhere. Its being offered now for 1499 down from 1599 last week. Anyone managed to get a 5.10/5.13 Firmaware from John Lewis recently?

    Their display model will have been on display for sometime and will therefore run on the 3. software. Their stock models really depend on manufacture date, but due to the size of the company I'd expect their sales to be high enough for the stock to be of fairly recent manufacture date. Hope this helps.

    Hi,

    I got 5.13 from JL Sheffield 6 weeks ago. I don`t think that any of the stock will be 3.x., we have been on 5.x since last November/December. However, the display models will most likely be the older 3.x panels.

    Cheers

    I got my 5.14 version from the Kingston branch delivered yesterday. Interestingly I can see through the vents on the back of the screen, and it was manufactured in Dec 2004, so I was a bit concerned it would be a lesser firmware, luckily this was not the case.

    I think you'll be very unluckly not to get a 5.13 or 5.14 firmware model from JL considering the amount of these they sell.

    thanks, guys. it appears there are a proportion of LGs supporting lower versions of the firmware sitting in the Lewis warehouses. perhaps not many but they are there lurkingn in the shadows - the one on show at the HIgh Wycombe branch was pulled up from the warehouse only one month ago. It's worth reminding people to press menu on the remote and new set simultaneously to check just in case someone get on the wrong side of the probability ratio and puts the poorer picture down to running in time. Mine arrives next Thursday - fantabulous (after I've checked!)

    Their price is higher than JL by £100, but Comet will price match with them, so you should be ok via that route too.
