    I found a serial port (DB9 Connector) on my 7.1 Channel Surround 
Amp, so I just E-mailed the manufacturer/Supplier and they said its 
actually a Regional programing port, so it could be configured for each 
country it gets sent off to.

    Maybe if you tried the same, you'd get a nice result, or no so hapy 
one ;o)
