Just took delivery of my VT50 Yesterday. This AM I updated the firmware. I dont know if this happened after or all along,but when I turn the set on, I am rewarded with a "sponsored advertisement" banner at the bottom of the screen.
This is about as offensive as it gets. Its not like I bought a "budget" model which was subsidised by add revenue to panasonic (ala the various amazon kindle models). How do I shut this off?
