    Just saw this on another board, and since there are several 49TX owners here I thought I'd pass it on.

    A web reviewer dude (docdvd) just posted he found out there
    will be an upgrade offered on the 49TX. The upgrade includes firewire capability. He didn't have all the details, other than saying the upgrade doesn't quite get the 49TX up to *all* the 49TXi features.

    For what it's worth...

    The upgrade will be worth it if you plan on getting the DV-49AVI or any other equipment that utilizes the firewire.
    I also wonder what the extra features the 49TXi will have. I hope its not another surround format. Imagine, DPL3!! Dolby Digital Discrete 6.1, Man, I'll be pissed! [​IMG] I'll bet they'll just add Dolby Headphone. We'll found out sooner or later.

    It's exciting that Pioneer is offering ANY kind of h/w upgrades on their receiver. I LOVE my 49TX.

    It is amazing that an upgrade is already in the works for a receiver that hasn't been on the market that long.

    I'm not really familiar with Pioneer but is this the first upgrade they are offering for their flagship receiver? I just every remember them offering upgrades on their previous Elites.
