I currently have a Toshiba 3109 DVD player and plan to buy a progressive scan player in the near future. I would like to keep the Tosh as a second player, but it seems to have the subtitle problem that has been reported with a few of newer discs out there. I understand that you can get a firmware upgrade to the latest version for about $45. Is it worth the effort? Will it significantly improve playback quality and fix the subtitle error? Or, is it time to trash the unit? It has served me well for over 3 years. Thanks.
