It could be simply that they are still working on other models firmwares.. After all, looking at the list it seems fairly clear that EVERY single size AND model has a unique firmware load... That adds to the time it takes to get new firmware built for each size/model combination and test it.
Also, it's been suggested earlier in this thread that field testing is underway-- it could be that they don't have enough data back yet from unlisted size/model combinations to trust putting the firmware out for general availability until more tests results are received from the field technicians.
Also I find it interesting that the website the SC BD Reduction firmwares are located are on a different server than all the others, which is probably why no one can download the SC BD Reduction firmwares. I tried pinging the site listed and got no response. I'm not sure how to ping specifically port 8100 however.
Could be this IP address is located behind a firewall so that only authorized personnel can get to the firmware for now, and then when they are comfortable with the results (say, around the 'target date' of 5-Feb) they will move it to the same server as everything else that we CAN download...
just a few thoughts..
edit: it also looks (to me) like there are multiple firmwares in the TV.. One chip might be doing things inclusive of THX decoding and another chip may be doing voltage control, etc... This of course is just my
theory. When people were debating whether or not firmware revisions were cumulative, I never saw this possibility mentioned, which is why i'm mentioning it now... (no, I'd rather not bring that discussion back up, just mentioning for reference.)
edit 2: looks like somebody in the THX thread also already noticed the different IP address.. sorry for the duplicate post...
