Downloaded firmware version 3.0 to my A2 last night via the ethernet connection, upgrading from 2.8. Not sure what's in it, but played the historically troubled Planet Earth, Disk 3, Jungle, Chapter 4, and it played through without a hitch, first time ever.

Does it speed up boot time any? I've been staying at 2.3 but it just takes so long to get to the menu of the disk.

About 30 seconds to "No Disc" message on my A2 w/3.0.

Well this is great, I updated my xa2 via the ethernet last night, the unit turned off after and opened the tray, I restarted it and the door never closed and it stayed on welcome for a long time, then it got an error msg of something like 20087033 and thats all that comes up now, the welcome then the error, I tried to unplug it for a hour and that did nothing, any ideas???

Push and hold the power button on your player for 10secs,if that doesn't help then hit Setup->General->Maintenance->Initialize.
If neither help then call Toshiba because it's bricked.

I haven't read any reports of any downsides to updating the A2 to firmware 3.0. Whenever I take my A2 out of backup status (the closet), there's a 3.0 update disc waiting for it.

Is the "jaggies" problem with firmware 2.8 and 3.0 for the XA2 only for HD-DVDs or for upconverted SD-DVDs as well?
