Just got a refurb 3910 from Ubid (build date sticker says November 2004), which has the following firmware designations:
MAKE DAY 902
I am nnot sure which designation corresponds to what function or capability on the unit (Denonlink3, region free, etc), but I mainly want to find out if I need to (or should) flash the firmware with the files I downloaded from the Denon site, which are:
d31zsavd.cfw, dated April 13, 2005
d391il.rom, dated May 9, 2005
SUP3910.rom, dated May 9, 20005
The instructions that came with the files imply that, after the upload, the firmware versions would be:
MAKE DAY 413D
(DRV and DSP codes are not mentioned in the memo)
The SYSTEM and C/CNE codes are the same, but the downloaded firmware for MAKE DAY and ESS are lower numbers, which sounds like a downgrade to me. Does anyone know what the codes correspond to relative to functions or capabilities in the player?
I have not hooked it to a monitor yet (I am using it for my audo disk player for the time being, but will mate it with a Panny 900u in the near future). Is there a way other than video tests that determine if the unit has the BTB problem referred to in earlier postings?
