I just updated my 200 with the new firmware and I can confirm that it does not fix the helicopter noise on DD+. I was trying different discs and went from Moody Blues HD DVD Dolby True HD to The Golden Compass DTS HD MA 7.1 and they both played perfectly. I then went to Transformers HD DVD DD+ and immediately got the helicopter noise. I removed the disc, shut down and then restarted the 200 and tried again. Transformers then played fine. This is the same experience that I have had in the past with the 200.
As a side note, I was also not able to do the update via internet directly to the 200. I got a message that it couldn't find the update so I copied the new firmware to a memory stick and did the update that way. Perhaps my ethernet connection to the 200 was not working properly, but I don't think so.
