Haven't read anything on the MRC forum - can't see there being a fixable upgrade in the UK as it is MRC policy that all modifications have to be dealt with at their place in New Jersey and it will cost you $50.00.
So far I've only used decoders from Bachmann ( the 3 function cheapy ) Soundtraxx and QSI and I haven't had any problems on my Prodigy Advance

Sales of the Prodigy Advance and Express are continuing well here in the
U.S....So well in fact that we are sold out at the manufacturers level.
There is no plan to discontinue sales or pull the systems off of Dealers
shelves, in fact we are highly anticipating the release of the new Prodigy
Advance Squared.
Even though we do not have the NMRA conformance seal, our DCC systems and
decoders comply with all the NMRA's existing R.P.'s and Standards, and are
compatible with all other NMRA compatible systems and decoders.
At this point in time, I do not know what the situation is that is going on
in the U.K. with Hornby decoders.

That would seem to one side of the equation out the window - back to Hornby!
