Yeah, BenQ has a new firmware coming out for sure... but it's not being rushed out anytime soon according to the e-mail I received about 9 hours ago. That isn't to say it'll be a month or longer, but it's not imminent as I understand it. Probably some people might have advanced beta's of it though.
Still working on the scrached CD testing thing... it's been a busy week. When I say I got the e-mail 9 hours ago, that was ~1am, which is about 1.5 hours before I went to bed, which was 4.5 hours before I left for work, (which is where I am now).... and this has been my regular pattern all week
