Hi dOUbleOfour,

I can't overemphasize to approach this matter carefully. One person already screwed up their DDV-S670 by installing the DV6 upgrade on it.

The firmware posted for the Nisis DV6 will not work properly, if at all, in your DDV-7000. The Nisis DV6 is the Digilife DDV-660. If the DV6 firmware works at all, I'd expect you would lose the motion stabilization and remote control functions.

I know of no source for any firmware for the hybrids other than for the Nisis DV6. Nisis did not respond to my email requesting assistance getting firmware updates from Digilife, and Digilife doesn't respond to anything.

There is another topic on the subject of firmware upgrades in this forum, but it generated no responses.
