I noticed in your mag when you reviewed the new Sharp BD-HP20(january issue I think)you said that this player had a terminal for firmware updates,is this a usb port?I`ve tried talking to Sharp on the phone and gave up in the end as they don`t seem to know what I`m talking about,so thought I`d ask the mag team if it does have this,in the same way hddvd players have an ethernet port.I`m really considering this model,but only if I can update the firmware,one way or another.Also,is this one profile 1.0 or 1.1?That`s also a question Sharp could not answer for me.If it doesn`t connect to the web,can you update it by using a dvd-r/+r after downloading from the web and burning to disc?Someone here said that it has a usb port but that it`s only for Sharp`s service department?Please help,would be very grateful before I part with my cash.
