It does not
but now with HDMI I don't have to worry about it right?
I have a question for the people that said their BD530 automatically updated, what was the version you ended up updating to? I had BD4.598.00.00.C on the unit I got from Frys, it wouldn't update automatically with a working network connection (confirmed connection to youtube), and even when I tried to update via USB it said the version I got from LG was older (BD4.380.00.00.C). I just want to make sure I am using the latest firmware.
