    I've read so many rumors, and I'd just like to truly know if this so-called software rev 2.12 really exists for the H/K Signature 2.0. I've got 2.10a, which was supposedly the latest rev when I bought it from Harman Audio last summer.

    So my questions are:

    1) Does it exist?
    2) What is improved from 2.10a --> 2.12?
    3) Where can I get it? Can I upgrade the ROM myself?

    I'm hoping maybe it might correct the occasional lockup I get when changing digital modes.

    I talked to Bon Popum today, he's the nice man who does all the warranty work on the Signature 2.0s.
    There WAS a 2.12 upgrade that has been discontinues due to bugs.
    Apparently the 2.12 update was for something with the DTS board but it cause a problem where non-European models would no longer have there AM band working. Apparently Europe uses even numbers for stations and we use .5 for ours. So in the US it would try to use Euro tuning and it would not work.
    He said he only put in around 5 of the new eproms before HK recalled it.
    He confirms the current release is 2.10a.
    He also szays mine had a bad DTS board and he was waiting on parts. I want mine back [​IMG]

    Thanks for the info, Tom.

    I sent him an email addressing a couple of minor concerns. I'm anxiously awaiting his reply.

    If I recall - you're the one with the loud hiss problem, right? I watched a movie last weekend with my room unusually silent - all computers and all fans off. I could not hear any hiss even during the silent scenes of the movie, so yours definitely had some issues.

    Best of luck.
