Does anyone know if this will be the last firmware update or can we expect more?

i guess TOSHIBA is probably developing an ULTIMATE Firmware that can enable HDDVD player to play all avialiable video format( such as RMVB, MKV etc. of course, except Blu-ray Disc) via both the disc drive and the USB port( glad that we have two...)

at least, up-conversion is quite excellent on HDDVD.

Anyway,best wishes to my HD-XA2......

i'm keeping the secret of clouds.......

Would be nice if Toshiba could even add SACD and DVD-A capabilities.

Toshiba hasn't announced anything one way or the other so only time will tell if firmware 4 was the last firmware update.

DivX, MP3/WMA, AVCHD, MKV, WMV-HD would be nice. Also how about NetFlix/Pandora streaming??? I would hook it up to my network if that were to happen.

HD-DVD: 119 - Battlestar Galactica - Season 1
LD: 60+ - Al Jarreau Tenderness Concert
DVD:400+ - Gran Turino
VHS: 80+; S-VHS: 2
BD: 40 - Prince of Persia

Sure be nice to play all those formats, i'm just glad i figured how to play PAL a yr ago, really surprised after all these yrs somebody hasn't figured how to hack the software, considering it is basically a PC.
There was some early hope with the A1 but died,problem most likely the people that could possibly do it dont own or care about HD-DVD.

I remember yrs ago there were some very good programmers for dvd players, best was a 10 into 1 firmware for my Apex AD703.
