I've been wondering the same thing lately as I have put this player back in action recently. Tried the ZOOM XXX ZOOM sequences referenced for this and other Tosh DVDs with no success. Then I came across an ascertion, in this thread I believe, that the DVD in this unit is made by LG. I think actually that after initially putting there own DVD drive/controller in the V592, somewhere along the line they went outsource to LG. Which could explain some of the differences in behavior observed in different V592 units and why some owners can check firmware rev. with the ZOOM....sequence.
Anyway I went looking through a thread on one of the LG players, it happened to have the F/W check, I tried it and it works on my V592.
Here it is - Go through the setup menu and highlight TV Aspect Ratio 16:9, key-in 1 3 9 7 1 3 9 ENTER. In a second the SYSTEM INFORMATION screen appears.
Not sure what it all means, but the fields that changed after installing the F/W upgrade are:
MAIN VER. - E131 to E138
SUB VER. - 0002 to 0005
SERVO VER. - 1412 to 1414
MICOM VER. - V1.3122 to VI.DEO_SFT2
FYI, I received the upgrade disk from Toshiba this week it had the same Part # as posted previously in this thread. Also when you access the SYSTEM INFORMATION screen, it resets the unit to factory defaults, so you will have to restore any custom settings you have now. This alone had the welcomed side effect of restoring the audio to my HDMI connection, which I had lost somehow.
FWIW, the feedback received from the player during the upgrade was quite different from what the provided instructions indicated. Leading me to believe the disk contains F/W for both the Tosh and LG H/W.
Immediate post upgrade observations....the black level of the player seemed to change as I had to recalibrate Brightness on the sets HDMI input. Also as mentioned earlier horizontal position went from major left shift to minor right shift.
