Firmware updates for the PN63B590?
by citivas - 7/8/09 6:57 AM
I am concerned that there have been no firmware updates for the 590. Unlike its LCD cousins, all of the similar plasma models have had multiple firmware updates so far (some up to rev 9) except the 590 (including its nearesr similar models the 550, 560 and 650). It seems unlikely the 590 is uniquely free of the issues those firmware updates are addressing.
I realize the 590 was a commissioned model originally for Best Buy. Does that make it a lower priority for updates? Is there a plan to provide a firmware update for the 590 soon and in general will it receive updates in a similar timeframe as the similar plasmas with the same software?
In particular, is there any status on when the Cinema Smooth glitch will be addressed in the firmware?
