    I have a question concerning a subject that I've never heard of.Someone told me that you can download content,weather it be patches ,upgrades or whatever concerning your DVD player off the net,burn it to a disc,and then pop it into your DVD player and it would access the disc and update itself off the info recorded on the disc.Have any of you guys heard of this?

    These would be referred to as "firmware updates" and yes, some players do have them (In addition, I know several cd players have them, and I'm sure other things.) They are available for some players, though I do not have a list handy. They can be for several things, for fixing glitches, to allowing more formats to be played (in the case of the cd player)....There are a great deal of possibilities
