I'm not even sure what FW mine has, but I haven't updated it in awhile.
Downloading the 4/10 file now.
I have only had 1 or 2 netflix movies that didn't work, and I have used a LOT of them, including new releases that work without a hitch.
I haven't used the HD DVD in at least a year or so(maybe 2 years- I dunno), but I do remember that the last time I updated the fw, it hosed the HD DVD portion, the disc player was making growling noises while playing HDDVDS, so I downgraded back to the earlier version and it worked fine again....so my FW must be at least 2 generations old.
This player still works fine, and I have no intention of upgrading any time soon.
Edit: I just did a search in this thread, the last time I discussed FW was like 8/09, when I made reference to the grinding noises the newest FW(at THAT time) caused my player, so my FW is probably the 402 fw, I think the fw that caused the grinding was the 620 fw - now remember, that was in 09, so the 4/10 fw is obviously almost a year newer than the fw that caused my player to make grinding noises....
Edit2- I just went back to the FW watch thread, and it seems I am most likely using 402 from 2008!
I cannot use the 1397139 trick to see what FW I actually have loaded, as it doesn't seem to work, and I tried it like 10 times.
Not 100% sure I'm going to update it, it seems to work fine the way it is.
Why waste $ on more cheap stuff, it's like challenging a dragon with a pocket knife.
