As for the side argument going on in this thread, well one stop its not the place for it and two for those who are tired of seeing frequently the same questions asked well you know what to do
Create a BenQ w1070 FAQ thread that the first post by one forum member and the second post by a different forum member is always updated and maintained thus eliminating the issue and having a nice point to reference back to. I know I wouldnt complain if someone decided to take on that task.
Not huge advantage to be gained by having access to those day and night settings. Definitely not worth voiding the warranty for, if that is your main reason for updating.
First, you would still need the equipment to do a calibration, as those ISF settings aren't right out of the box.
Second, if you have the equipment, there is nothing that would prevent you from doing your own Day/Night cal using User1 and User2, for instance, so, again, not a huge deal.
Third, and a video purist would argue most important (not saying I am or am not, just throwing it out there), there is no such thing as a day/ night cal. There is no such thing as reference with the lights on, so... yeah.
I will probably update my firmware though, just because I like to have the latest, and I have never been scared to tinker with the software of my devices.
