Pioneer released v1.50 firmware revision for the DVR-A09 series. Upgrading adds 8x recording support for Ricoh 8x DVD+RW media.
Note that 8x DVD+RW recording has been optimized for the new Ricoh DVD+RW media and thus, it can be achieved only with the specific discs. At least for now, the rest 8x DVD+RW media will be recorded at 3.3x max.
In addition, the new firmware improves the overall readability and writability of all DVD and CD recordable/rewritable formats. The complete changelog is available here
