Joerod has received a phone call from Denon stating that they will be releasing a firmware update to deal with a few issues in the 3800. Although his concern was centered around the 24/23.976 frame rate discrepancy, it could be that they will address the LFE bug as well. Denon stated that the update will be ready in a few weeks, so it would be reasonable to allow them the opportunity to correct any discovered shortcomings within a decent time frame.
As the original poster in this thread, it's obvious that I was/am an enthusiastic Denon supporter. I am concerned that a $2000 player has operational flaws and there has not been a more definitive statement of what problems will be addressed (and when), especially when the LFE bug was known to exist in the Panasonic players (which share a chip with the Denons apparently).
If Denon IS watching this thread closely, I truly hope that they will publicly respond with a statement of firm commitment toward rectifying performance issues in this player.
