    I have to send in my unit because the "protector" will not reset. This receiver weighs over 70 pounds so I am trying to decide whether to bring it to a local repair shop an hour away or to box it up and UPS it to Houston which will be expensive due to the weight.
    The only reason I can see to send it to Houston is if there has been a firmware update that I can get taken care of while it's there. Does anyone know if there has been any firmware updates for the 777es? I know there is one for the 9000es pre/pro.
    Also, There used to be an EZ-Board website for owners of the 777es but I lost the URL. Does it still exist?
    Thanks in advance for your help...

    Hi Michael.
    The EZ board site is here
    AFAIK the firmware upgrade is supposed to eliminate hiss in rear and centre channels when in stereo mode. If your receiver doesn't have this problem (mine isn't noticeable) it probably isn't worth the hassle.
