I'm currently preparing my Panasonic A-110 to ship out for an optical pickup replacment and a firmware upgrade, but I don't know the current firmware for Panny's, I need it to make sure it was done when the player comes back. The old firmware is U733, is this still the current #, or has it been changed? Incidentally, this is the second time I had to have this done, I sent it out last year and they replaced the optical pickup and updated the firmware. It's been fine since until just recently when I started to notice a little pixelation here and their, but i'm not going to let it get as bad as it was before. This thing was a nightmare before I got it repared the first time and i'm not going through that kind of misery again! Beleve me, I am perfectly aware of the history of this player, but it only took a week to get fixed the last time, witch isn't too bad and it didn't really cost me that much, so I figured what the hell, and besides, it's great player, when it works that is. ------------------ God bless the USA and the men and woman of our military and their families!
