M11xR1 Alienware OSD (on screen display) version update?

Hmmm...



Why is it that the R1 download page is showing the OSD A03 as the latest package? We were told that the A04 release was for both the R1 and R2 - they added the volume icons in A04.



http://forum.notebookreview.com/alie...ml#post6614452



I wonder how many R1 users are still using A03 because Dell hasn't bothered to update the R1 downloads page?



Can anyone who's recently purchased an R1 verify the version of C:Program Files (x86)Alienware On-Screen DisplayAlienwareOn-ScreenDisplay.exe?



EDIT: Looking at the Fixes and Enhancements section of the OSD A04 on the R2's download page it states:




Quote:





1) Adds volume up and down icons for M11xR2.

2) Resolves intermittent S3/S4 issue where OSD could stop responding on M11xR1.





Whereas on the OSD A03 on the R1's page only has:




Quote:





Adds volume up and down artwork (supported with BIOS A04 or later)





Something's not right here, and I suspect that it's that Dell hasn't added A04 to the R1's driver page...
