Mike seems to be the most knowledgeable one there, so I'd try to speak to him again.

As far as I know, the whole "A" upgrade thing was the "U" models not the "E" models? (I may be wrong). I haven't had to send my cam in for any fixes, but then again I've never had many problems, I just wanted the firmware update to minimise the final cut problems, and so far I haven't had a chance to try it out.

The only thing thats noticeably different so far since the update is a couple of extra menu items, which I think are connected to firestore hard drive use.

^^ Cheers Paul.
I phoned again on Friday and they asked if I wished to send the camera in for the upgrade - I told them I'd give it a go myself (making sure the tape is out the cam!). However, for the HD100 fix on the website you have to fill out a form for them to then contact you again...so I'm still waiting.
Didn't realise the 'A' upgrade relates to the U models though.
