[quote=Sound & Vision;18876322]IMO.. I don't like to answer this type of question... Why?? Because every firmware has been an improvement to me.. You cannot go back to an older one and there is no need to.. I cannot agree that an older firmware was better.. And will not agree just to agree.. I see nothing wrong with the latest firmware.. All my blu rays look great, actually fantastic!! That is the definitive source.. Not someones cable or satellite box.. Those sources are prone to compression artifacts (cable tv cramming in new channels on their current bandwidth) and block noise from the satellite digital conversion process etc, etc.
Rather you agree or not is beside the point. Everyone is different and we may see or percieve something that bugs us even if it isn't real, we believe them to be. He like I believe we see noticable differences in the firmwares before nad after. We see it as worse, you see it as bettter and I am glad for you. He never said what he used as source but I see this difference rather with PS3 Bluray or hdtv through HR-23 Directv Reciever. I will say it should certainly be an improvement and should'nt hurt the PQ. in theory. Afterall, improvement is the whole point of doing the upgrade.
