My player worked great until I updated it...

Oh, and yes, I tried hard booting the unit and initializing it.

Thanks, slimm!!

Crap! The update ISO gives the same message as the web update and won't allow me to update again...

I don't believe you will be able as you already have 1.3. Have you tried to initialize the player to see if that helps with the picture settings.

Yup, hard booted a couple of times...reinitialized a half dozen times...no go.

Might sound crazy, but several have reported this as solving issues and Robert from VE says to follow this procedure after updating the firmware. Only takes a few minutes, so it's not a big deal and may save some aggravation later... and best of all, you can reply "Yes, I did initialize" when someone questions you after you report a bug


do i need to initialize after loading both 1.2 and 1.3 or can i just do it once after loading both?
Mikeb33's Avatar Mikeb33 03:37 PM 04-05-2007
Usually you just load the latest version, not needing to do 1.2.

ive been trying to download to 1.3 with my a2 and it keeps saying :cannot find server:

but i turned dns and the other thing both on and off and still nothing but when i hit confirmed with both of them turned on i get all zeros for the ips and dns
Iggster's Avatar Iggster 01:20 AM 04-06-2007
well the net wouldnt work.. i always though the iso image needed a dvd-r and since i dont have a dvd burner i never bothered so i looked into it and its cd-r which i do have so i downloaded it and burned it and updated my player to 1.3 i just wish i would done that first i spent about 4 hours trying to get the net to work. even going as far as going to another freinds house and taking my player to his house and hooking it up to where his 360 hooks up with no luck either.

When I came home with my new A2 I set up the ethernet connection and ran my cable directly from my modem to the A2. OK'd update and it said can not find server. Rebooted my A2 and all was fine. Took about 1hr, I miss the perctentage complete info that my A1 has.

There is nothing on the monitor just those numbers on the Unit's display. Does anyone else have "Relentless Enemies" ? And are you experiencing playability issues on the A2?

BTW I have Firmware V1.3

Can you shed a little light on this issue with "Relentless Enemies" and the code on the front display "4086 4203" from your inside contacts at Toshiba??

Thanks,

Ron

Does anyone know what the code means and when will there be a fix?

Thanks,

Ron

I just upgraded to 1.3 with the CD I received from Toshiba (I skipped 1.2 altogether), and then initialized it. The whole process only took 15 minutes. I just hope it's as trouble free now as it was before the upgrade.

does anyone have the link where I can request the firmware CD? I looked around but stupid me could not locate it, thanks

Here is the link for Toshiba's HD DVD site: Toshiba HD DVD

Click on the 'Support' tab at the top of the web-page.

In order to request the Firmware CD you need to mail in the registration card that came with your player or telephone them at 1-800-319-6684

Same here. The 1.3 disk arrived out-of-the-blue a few days ago. I had received an email over a month ago saying that the 1.2 disk would be arriving shortly. It never showed up but I wasn't having any real issues so I was in no rush. The only problem I had was if I pressed eject while it said "Loading" the machine would freeze up and I'd have to do a 'hard turn off' by holding the power button in for eight seconds. Once I learned not to do this it was just a minor inconvenience but the 1.3 upgrade seems to have cured it. Otherwise I don't see anything different; I must say that I'm very happy with the unit.

Not to ask a stupid question, but is there an official list of what the 1.3 update for the XA2 actually fixes?
thetman's Avatar thetman 06:24 AM 04-09-2007
thanks for the information, much appreciated. Although after reading around a bit- it seems that maybe this upgrade will not fix the problems with discs such as COM and good shepard- so maybe update 1.5 is the one to look out for?

How long does it take for Toshiba to send the update disk after you ordered it?

I just got a brand new A-2 from amazon.....does this already have the firmware upgrade? I went through the update process with broad band and it says my software is already updated.

go into the OSD and loo at the maintenance tab...and select update...what does the number say?
evan1's Avatar evan1 05:37 PM 04-11-2007
well I could not wait a week so I disconnected my A2 and lugged it upstairs and hooked it up to my router and did the upgrade. Now I get my 1080i resolution and no handshake problems with hdmi to dvi, but I do notice my lfe channel is low, any thoughts? I am watching Perfect Storm right now and the picture looks okay. I hoped for better but will try another movie

I sent for mine over a month ago, but still haven't received it. I wonder how long I should wait before I start rattling Toshiba's cage. I have occasional audio problems with my XA2 and I'm anxious to see if this upgrade will fix the issue.

I just received my HD-A2 today from ***call and immediatly called Toshiba for the firmware update disc. Have not even hooked up the A2 yet...but will this weekend when I have more time. Anyway, Toshiba said they are out of stock and they will get more in 3 weeks But on the bright side, whenever a new update comes out, they will automatically send you the new disc

Version 1.5 for A2/XA2 is now available from Toshiba.
