Now I KNOW we watched King Kong with the 09 and DD+ and again no problems
If I get time, I'll try to re-confirm which processors the 09 & 07/05 uses. It's been a long time since I looked all that stuff up.
Even tho there's strong evidence that Pioneer implementation has something to do with the problem, the posts here keep confirming that Toshiba's FW 4.0 is a big factor.
Hate to keep repeating myself
......is rolling back to FW 2.7 an option? 2.5 introduced stutter with 1080p/24, fixed with 2.7. 2.8 caused problems with AVC codec, wasn't fixed until 4.0. So....2.7 seems to be the best option to me
If you folks can find it with the modded header that fakes the player that it is is a later version than 4.0 - you most likely have a fix with or without Pioneer's help.
I had downloaded & saved the thread page referring to how to mod the FW with a hex editor but don't have the links to the FW. I have all Toshiba's FW iso files for the XA2, A35 & XA1 since I've owned all 3. I bought a demo A35 solely as a backup in case the XA2 dies. I can send the FW to any of you if needed. I had downloaded a freebie hex code editor and checked out the code in case I had to do this, but haven't actually done it.
I looked in the HD-DVD thread, but the specific thread discussing how to revert is not there anymore. You probably can find many references within the player FW discussion threads.
Attached is my downloaded page on how to do it.
