No, you should be fine. These older non-network models could only update firmware via serial interface and generally would only have an update if there was a major bug that needed fixing.

That's all markting fluff. You really need height/overhead speakers to take full advantage.

Surely someone with a 7.1.4 setup and the Last Witch Hunter BD can...

You are SOL unfortunately. ARC won't work as it can't pass hi Rez bitstream audio back through.
