Firmware Upgrade?

Is there a chance of JVC allowing for an upgrade to the current HD100/101s so they can reverse an image upside down, to allow for the Red Rock / P&S systems?

I understand the new models about to come out provide this feature, but surely it is simply a software issue, so would JVC be willing to provide this solution?

Or am I out of the loop, and has this already been provided?

I know there are answers to this minor problem, such as getting monitors that can reverse the image, or simply turning over your monitor, but hey, it doesn't hurt to ask...

Chris unfortunately I think this is more than just a software issue. Inverting the image requires processing power. As the current firmware allows you to flip the image left for right it may be feasible with the current hardware, but JVC have not made any announcements. Certainly it's been brought up as a feature request (which is why it turned up in the 200/250), but I'd be looking at the alternative solutions for the HD100.
