I'm not sure also when my unit was built, but I did purchase in December 04.
I don't think any firmware that is user-installable fixes the BTB issue. My unit passed below black right out of the box, so I've not been bedeviled like some on this thread. But as the adjustments basically make "black" as black as our PJs can do (read: minimum light output) below black, for me and my HS20, has no great importance. In short, you can't view movies and determine if you're doing BTB.
