isn't that correct?
No, that is not correct..what slumpey is saying, is that sets manufactured after sept 20
, have the new hardware and firmware.
The new firmware works only w/the new hardware, so if you have a 9 in the ninth digit of the s/n, and the new firmware, you also will have the new hardware...doesn't have to be an october build date.
The 950's with the october build date just guarantee's that you have the updated set without having to go into the menu and check the firmware, as all sets manufactured in sept do not have it.
