    Just received by Malata N66 DVD player
    yesterday.
    It is still sitting in the box. I'll probably
    get around to setting it up in the next day or so.
    How do I know if it has the latest firmware
    update or not?
    Thanks in advance!

    Ron:

    Hold down the "Pause" (corrected) button on your remote control for five seconds and you will see the version number and date for the firmware. Do you also have the upgrade switch on the back of the player? This was added with the November '01 build.

    In getting started, a good first step would be to use your Avia disc to set up your personalized brightness, gamma and contrast settings on your Malata in the Feature mode.

    Have fun.

    I don't have one here right now to test, but I thought it was the Pause button? The 2nd button from the left under the cursor keys. No?

    If you just got it from avdeals, you should have the latest. I'm pretty certain their site says they're modding the players to make the upgrade easier and putting the latest firmware on there.
