I received the firmware fix from Jeff Talmadge today via FedEx and immediately installed it in my player. It was a two-step process with two discs going into the player without pressing play. After some technostuff kept flashing on the display, I was ready to plop in Toy Story and give it a whirl. It looked much better on the two scenes that I check frequently: the opening title and the Woody at the podium scenes. I am sure you skeptics out there may feel that this is some massive conspiracy cover-up, but I really think that they got it right this time..after working diligently after the release date to get it right.
