    I've been tempted to buy this before but now that it is less than £100 at RS I can resist no longer!

    Snag is they no longer appear to offer the MR version. So, can it be hacked easily enough and if so how?

    Thanks

    I hope you can get it MR, but here is a 'DIY' post/thread.

    Hello DaveP. The MR upgrade is a software hack, done with a CD Rom. I was told that RS were doing it themselves. That's why the boxes have been opened, and sealed again with RS tape. Have you tried their mail order line? I bought one just before Christmas. They were advertised at £119, but they did a '£10 pricebeat' on an Amazon price, also £119, and thus I got it for £109 delivered in black. Amazon are still advertising the MR for £119 also. If you go the RS route, make sure you push them on the 'pricebeat' as they will try and wriggle out of it, saying that Amazon haven't got stock etc. Cheers, Chris.
