Hello, I've recently acquired one of the above units. It's a fantastic jump from VHS, that's for sure! However, as has been mentioned in other threads, there are a couple of niggles with it. Most notably, you can't add a buffer when recording via the EPG. So I've missing the last 60 seconds or so of about 3 out of the 5 programmes I've recorded so far. My question is this, if anyone can help. Will it be possible for Sony to provide an update to the OS by CD or whatever method? Or am I stuck with this? For anyone who's interested, I made this unit multiregion by using the 1,2,3,4,5 Palm trick. Many thanks, Russell.
