I want to squash rumours that the Wharfedale DVD750 has had any new firmware revisions. Some newsstand magazines have published stories suggesting that newer models of this player come with a modified firmware which prevents the region hack.
This is untrue and I'm not quite sure where this rumour originated. Wharfedale themselves have confirmed that no such firmware changes have taken place and that none are planned. If you've held of buying one of these players due to these rumours then you can rest assured that the hack is still present.
On a related note, my Wharfedale CTV850 widescreen TV review model arrived this morning. I haven't had a chance to set it up yet, but hopefully I will have a go tonight. A review will follow some time in the next week or so.
