Gizmo is mistaken there is no
8th of January 2009 firmware
. Gizmo means:BH02081205A (2008-12-05)
Or in North American format:12-05-2008
He's also got the name of the firmware wrong, BHLV221BH is really just the filename. It's name is: BH02081205A.
BH02 - BH200
081205 - Date
A - Not America, international releases also share it
I'm not sure where he got that date from to be honest, probably the date it appeared on the LG Service Sites which means absolutely nothing. LG would've finished programming it on the 5th of December. The delay is probably to do with testing, before release.If you really want to know what the firmware date release name is, open the ROM file in WordPad/Any Word Processor and the very first line is the header of the file. It says: BH02081205A. Obviously open a copy in WordPad, not the one you plan to upgrade your BH200 with.

It doesn't exist
. You can see by the layout, Gizmo means the December firmware. It goes:
April 2008 - Essentially a further tested March firmware, one and only big upgrade
March 2008 (Beta, never official) - First firmware to enable TrueHD/DTS-HD Lossless support and conversion to Legacy DTS
January 2008 - First firmware released in Europe
November 2007 - First firmware released in North America
I should know. I've been tracking LG BH200 firmware releases since launch.
