Additional Notes

Sharp doesn't seem to offer any decent support for downloads overseas.

However the Japanese site is great unfortunatley it is in Japanese. If you do(as most of you dont) read Japanese the first open box is the search engine. The next page is the results so follow your eye and match the model numbers. GOOD LUCK!!
