Turn green LED off while monitor is on (8351)

I'm about to purchase a pair of 8351 to use in my home theater, I saw this picture on twitter (retweeted by @genelec) and I almost got a panic attack:

I asked the guy and @genelec the same question but I didn't get an answer yet. Could you please tell me this is possible? It seems to be a deal breaker for usage in dark room (projection) conditions.

Hi,

It is not possible to turn green LED off while monitor is on. You should place a piece of black/white tape over the LED if you need to dim it.

Hi Ilkka,

why not bringing a feature to dim or deactivate the LED via the GLM?

Thank you for sharing this Ilkka!

Is there a chance we'll see a firmware update with this feature released this year? Or it'll be a 2017 thing? (I understand if you can't answer)

I absolutely do understant why it would nice to be able turn the led off, those annoy me always when in visual field. It just feels stupid to need to use tape, if led is controlled by the microcontroller inside the speaker. If its hardware controlled, then i blame the designer and spec definer :/

It required both firmware and software update. Unfortunately I can't promise a release date yet. :)
