###COPIED AND PASTED FROM ANOTHER SOURCE, I DID NOT WRITE THIS### "Folks it has been awhile, but I will be able to respond to the multitude of questions since I was last on. I'll be posting responses starting Monday the 29th. For now a couple of things: First an apology for not being on for a really long time. Sorry. Second. the firmware for the DVD-2900 is NOW AVAILABLE and ready to be sent to those who request it. The firmware is for serial numbered units 3048404741 and lower, all other serial #s do not need the firmware as it they were corrected at the factory. THIS FIRMWARE IS FOR UNITED STATES/CANADA CUSTOMERS ONLY! It corrects the following: 1. Pixel Cropping - as reported by Stacey Spears 2. RS-232C protocol changes 3. Freezing issues with the AVIA Test Disc There is no fix for the 'Chroma Bug' for 3:2 Alt Flag material or 4:2:0 material. Sorry. I am not going to post, or e-mail, the firmware for download as there are too many variables that can corrupt the data, which could seriously damage your player. I will send them to you, at no charge of course. I am also not going to state any 'firmware version checks procedure' as I am not updated from the factory when there are version changes, so I feel this will cut down on everyones confusion on which version is current and/or correct. Please PM me with your request and shipping information, including phone number. Also will someone copy this post for me where other DVD-2900 owners reside.
