I hope that either JKR or Denon got back to you regards the FW update to fix HDMI. I checked my computer and couldn't find an image of the disk. I do have the PDF from Denon that was the instructions for the update, and I also have a zip from 2010 that was the region-free mod, which MAY have included the FW update to correct HDMI.
I doubt that I have the disk, as I sold the unit a few years ago to a happy guy with lots of out-of-country DVDs. Likely I put the Denon disc in the box for the guy. If you still need the disc, pm me and I'll send to you what I've got, and give a concerted effort to find either the image or the actual disc. Or, to tell you for certain that I have neither.
Liked that Denon while I had it (2004-2010?), stable transport for audio, HDMI was no problem. Largely replaced by Pio BD-51fd and an OPPO DV-980h fully region-free also, SACD/DVD-Audio, really great 2-ch DAC outputs to amp/speakers, and a USB that decodes MLP.
That old OPPO basically plays anything not-Blu and round!! Still have THAT puppy, even though I just picked up a new OPPO BDP-93 for my New Year's present.
Good luck, and let me know if I can help.
p.s. Kinda' sad that someone said 2910 worth $20 USD. I thought pretty highly of it while I had it. Seemed like a good unit, Japan Made (?), trouble free for 4+yrs. But, I guess things age (don't I know it...) and technology keeps moving along. As a pure digital audio transport, or even a 2-ch analog out, I would think that a well cared for unit would find a new and happy home.
