mlang46 - while it might not be true 'SRS', it will have a virtual surround option
arobacker - Since the 3800 uses the same decoding circuitry as our 38/4308CI AVRs, you will get the next best thing through the analog outputs/inputs as an HDMI 1.3 connection. The 3800 excels at SD and CD performance for your system.
swanlee - Understand loud and clear, and we feel the same way...stay tuned
Firmware updates for the BD products will be delivered in one of 2 ways (actually we have done it this way for our SD product for a number of years), via download then burn to CD-R or by mail via request.
MadMrH - In extreme circumstances we have delivered previous versions of firmware if one did not take correctly, once I know of in my 8 years. Unfortunately, only US players can get US firmware, and so on for all the regions.
