Has sacd-r playback been eliminated on the 751bd?

Dear Sir, thanks for your inquiry.
Yes it has. It and BD-ISO were removed from the blu ray standard. Unfortunately it is no longer possible for us to license our Blu-Ray players with these file playback formats. This licensing change applies retrospectively and as such as well as removing this format from new players, we have had to remove it from units that have already been sold. This is the first time that we have ever had to do this and we are aware that it may be frustrating for people who have been using this feature prior to this software release. Please be assured that we did not take this decision lightly. The penalties for continuing to allow playback are very severe and would have a serious effect on the company if we were caught and punished.
As this is a change brought about by licensing requirements we cannot supply the old firmware and any future firmware updates will continue to have this feature removed.
I am sorry I cannot be more help in this instance.
