    Newbie seeks enlightenment.

    Is the firmware upgrade to convert to multi-region available anywhere?

    Is a firmware/multi-region upgrade the same thing?

    How does it work- do companies upgrading machines pay so much per machine?

    Are there any websites where, if one (theoretically of course) wished to download the firmware/upgrade one could (in theory)?;)

    Toshiba players need a hardware mod, normally it requires a chip to be fitted to enable multi region and macrovision free, most people buy them ready chipped. The firmware upgrade is only to fix any bug's. Hopefully Toshiba may also release a firmware upgrade to allow pal progressive scan.
