Well the D2 that I bought from the Perimeter Costco, here in Atlanta, last Friday, came with 1.2. I updated to 1.6 over a WEP connection with no problem.

Looks like fw version 2.x was NOT for the A2 after all.

Well I finally did it just got off the phone with Wendy from VE and just placed my order for the XA2. She told me that it should ship last week in June. I took deal 3 for $499 which was my price point to order. I figured what the hell my b-day just past and it's Father's Day time to get myself a gift. I have not told the wife but what the hell she will find out eventually and I will be in HD heaven. Kudos to Rob and his staff ordering process was painless.

Very cool... hope it comes in sooner for you. Happy B-day & Happy F-day. Enjoy the present.

I took the same deal, except on the A2, since my panel isn't 1080p. Great deals at VE, and Robert & team really support us well. Always glad to give them my business.

Thank you for the wishes my XA2 will be connected to my Panny 47x54 which is 1080i. I bought the XA2 for future proof because I plan on upgrading my Panny RPTV with a new Panny Plasma early next year hopefully the 700u or 750.

Ouch - Last week of June!
I ordered the same from XA2 only from VE, hoped they would ship it today.

Now what about the 5 free movies from Toshiba? Will it arrive in time to redeem that offer?

Even though I took VE deal for $499 does it still entitle me to the Toshiba 5 freee HD-DVDs I though that if I took the 499 deal that it does not. Robert from VE please clarify if you can.

The 5 free HD DVD deal from Toshiba still applies.

I placed my order with Rob from VE on Friday. I called VE today to confirm my order because i did not receive and email confirmation and to my surprise Robert answered the phone. I asked him if my order was in the system and he said yes and I would get an email on Monday. He also stated that my XA2 will not ship until last week of June or first week of July which is fine by me. I asked him what firmware version would be installed and he said 1.7 yes thats right 1.7.
