Would this approach also be applicable for the MTV3600 with the Hong Kong versions of the firmware? Those versions appear to have a number of features removed in the NZ versions.
(Maybe this should be continued in the MTV3600 forum)
What I believe Ian was proposing was the possibility of obtaining much cheaper hardware in Australia and then being able to apply NZ firmware to make it run OK here.
This is the reverse of what you appear to be interested in.
I was intending it for people who already have the MTV3600
The next post from wklie suggests it is not going to work, due to the different hardware
