You are right - I quoted a statement that said via the net. But we were promised, in writing, the ability to update the firmware ourselves via the serial port, and Optoma has failed to do this. I'm quite pissed right now and if I get enough PM's I will contact a lawyer about a class action suit.
To think I shelled out over $5k for a projector promising I could upgrade it myself, but in reality I will have to take if off the mount, pay to mail it to California (insured no less), then wait three weeks to get it back, only to have to reinstall and realign it. It's why I'm still on C05 - because its not worth the cost and time to get C08 when C08 isn't upgradeable.
Optoma seriously sucks and I'm telling everyone who see's my theater (nine people today watching the Colts-Patriots) to stay away from Optoma completely.
