I think we are starting to get diverted here. Lets just reiterate a little bit.
It's a good idea to always take flashing your bios seriously because if its not done correctly you do run a very real risk of breaking your TV. That being said, as long as you take proper steps to make sure that you flash your hardware correctly including not downloading your flash software from a 3rd party torrent, there is really very little risk of something going wrong. This is especially true considering Mitsubishi has made these updates available to ALL owners of the sets in question and not just a select few.
There could very well be some great improvements that could possibly come about as a result of a firmware update even if it seems like nothing has changed for the average Joe. Things such as perhaps a fix for the color decoder to tame blue luminance or even a saturation control in the service menu, just to think of a few potential fixes. I remain hopeful that some of these things may be possible however unlikely it may be that they will become reality.
an example to reinforce my case is the Sony PS3. Sony has a new mandatory flash for the PS3 almost every month it seems and nobody is saying don't flash that.
I think of it like this, there is always a small chance something can go wrong during a flash. There is also a small chance you could die in a car accident. Is that a reason to never Drive? I rest my case.
