A couple of weeks ago I bought an RCA Lyra RD2780, the AV Recorder/Player (think portable Tivo with a screen).
There were some issues with the firmware (READ: many of the features didn't work), before you could use it you had to update the player. That's okay, the price one pays for early adoption.
But the problem is that when you download it, there is no way to tell them you want to be notified when future firmware updates are available. The same thing with my Nomad Zen MP3 player.
RCA, and Nomad, and all the other companies... please let me sign up for notification of available updates!
I registered my products, why can't they use that information - or allow me to register - for updates.
