> Out of curiosity, what version of NOS does your MP130 have installed? Oddly enough, I just tested a two MP130s both running 2.0 (525314) and the date resets to November 1, 1995 not March 14, 1996.
I have used Avi Drissmean's fix on my 130 and 120's. So far, haven't had a problem. By the way, to my knowledge, I thought all 130's are 2.0? Early 120's were 1.3, and later models 2.0. But I suppose someone could replace the ROM board at some point giving a 130 a 1.3 downgrade.
