this is a software update, not a firmware update.

It is sad that firmware updates are needed to ensure compatibility with the discs. They need to decide on a standard (not format) before we are forced to upgrade our equipment.

It seems that every few weeks new features are added to the HD and Blu Ray players that are not compatible with earlier hardware models.
