If you own a Sony 780, your firmware is up-to-date. Pioneer does not release firmware updates for its recorders unless there is a catastrophe or problem they get massive complaints about. The only time this occurred was in 2006 with the 640-540-543 models, these were the first Pioneer-Sony codeveloped recorders and they had a bug which prevented them automatically picking up TV show titles when broadcasts have them. This was a minor inconvenience but many folks complained, after several months Pioneer got tired of taking units back for free service and simply released the firmware patch publicly. The followup 450,550,650 and 460,560, 660 have the fix engineered into their newer firmware. The Sony 780, being an apparent clone of the Pioneer 560, should also be completely up to date. There is no need to bother about firmware in your recorder as long as it is working properly.
