Arrow VBIOS update for 6200?

Does anyone know where I might find VBIOS 05.44.a2.10.00 for a 6200 card? My card is at rev 05.44.a2.02.00, and I suspect a problem with it. I've been unable to find the latest version anywhere.

Why do you want a new videobios? A new videobios is only usefull when the normal bios contains bugs. For the rest a new bios doesn't bring new features or more performance.

Exactly, that is of course the point. I suspect a problem, as discussed in this thread:

contact that guy and see if he will dump his bios for you.

if you get one, send me a copy!
I am having a few really specific problems that I feel may be linked to my card bios.

I've explored these options. MSI's "LiveUpdate" says 05.44.a2.02.00 is the latest version. After some digging around mvktech.net for awhile I found a 05.44.a2.05 bios. I flashed to this version and it didn't help our problem. I also tried flashing to a couple of other (older) versions from other manufacturers on the off chance that might help. It didn't. And oh yeah, flashing an nv44 chip w/ 05.43 bios isn't a real good idea (fortunately my blind typing skills bailed me out)

I'm guessing netllama has access to the latest/greatest bioses because of his relationship w/ nvidia, but so far has decided not to upload it. I guess it wouldn't hurt to ask again. I wonder if there are any other bios versions besides 05.44.a2.10.00 which don't exhibit the 1080i xv problems...

FYI, my eVGA 6200 PCI-E has a 05.44.02.32.00 vbios (well that's what xorg reports) and I use xv.
