Cool, that it's official on the website. But doesn't anyone find it odd that you can't download just the firmware image from the website so you can burn it yourself onto a CD? I have broadband, but I don't have a router, so logistically I can't hook my HD-A1 up to the internet without having to buy one (my PC is way on the other side of the house and just lined directly into my cable modem).
OPPO lets you download the firmware file so you can burn it yourself. I was hoping Tosh would do the same. No biggie, I filled out that little pink card so they'll probably be sending me a firmware CD any day now. Also no biggie since all movies except Jarhead have played just fine, although I'd like to get the clipping taken care of. And no biggie, again, since I could easily just download the firmware from the link you guys have been good enough to provide!
(If someone gets an "official" CD from Tosh, maybe they could post that image somewhere, too? If I get mine before anyone has a chance, I'll do it, if anyone would like, not that it should be different than the one already posted)
I'm sure it's much faster to download the firmware, burn the CD and update the firmware than it is over the net...maybe we should have a contest to find out.
Although I'm not set up to do it, and people have said it's somewhat slow (30-40 mins), I still think it's pretty damn spiffy, indeed, that with the ethernet ports on the machine, you can download firmware directly from Tosh over the internet.
