My Hitachi 55VS69A has an upgrade slot, did Hitachi ever produce one for this model TV?? If so, where can a aquire one?? Thanx Mark

DTV version 0109.0001 was the last version released. You should contact Hitachi if you need it, as it appears to be only available to servicers (I didn't see it on the customer website anyway... double check it you like). They should be able to mail it to you with instructions on how to install it. However, if you are not having any issues with the product, there really is no need to upgrade the TVs firmware. This update will not give you any added features.

Hi can i upgrade software for 42pf5331 plasma and if then how

If you are not seeing ANY issues with the current software then don't try any updates as trying the incorrect version or attempting incorrectly will render the set totally useless and will require a main board replacement (cost of 300 and up). Unlike software updates on a computer, there is NO roll back feature.

Upgrade software for philips 52' lcd flat screen

Unless there is a specific issue that a firmware upgrade will solve, don't upgrade. Upgrades if interrupted can do damage to the control board rendering the set useless.

Upgrade for Hitachi 51F59A

The slot in the back of your TV is for upgrading the software version . It is like flashing the bios on a computer. If you are
having HDMI issues such as loss of audio, audio out of sync, color problems, intermittant shut off, snowy pix Etc. you may have to upgrade. Hitachi is aware of certain issues and they have downloads available to solve conflicts as they are identified.
