Hi DJ -
Thanks for the response. I was assuming it would and might be causing myself to look like a MAJOR newbie even by asking questions like these. Oh well, such is.
Do you know that it will work for a fact, though (have you tried it before)? Or, is it completely obvious that the US drive is the same as the AUS drive and that is why is will work?
I only ask because I sent Pioneer US a message on it and this was there response which made me feel like the AUS 1.13 firmware was different than the upcoming US 1.13 firmware:
Thank you for contacting Pioneer Electronics, Inc.
They have not yet released the 1.13 update, for the DVR-A07XL series. I can not recommend you use firmware from another site. I am sure the US engineers will approve it for the US soon.
