Waited for awhile, nothing. Pressed Setup button, the LED display said "setup" but I had a blank screen. I held in the Power button to re-set. It came back up, but blank screen on the TV. I have it connected with an HDMI>DVI cable that's always worked fine on my display's HDCP compliant DVI connection. On a lark, I hooked up an s-video cable and cycled through v.output after changing resolution to 480i. I got a display on my TV. I went through setup to Update, and it says my firmware is 2.1/1.0A/2.0T. So, hopefully I got all the update. Just no output on HDMI to DVI.
On hold with Toshiba Support as I type this. Fingers crossed!

Big scare for me, but all's well that ends well. Toshiba support said if my FW versions displayed 2.1/1.0A/2.0T, then I got all the update. They advised to turn the unit off, and then unplug it for a few minutes. I was disappointed to learn ther's no way to force the player to revert back to a lower FW version from a disk. That was always my "safety net", that I could revert back to the latest FW version I had from Toshiba if I had problems.
Anyway, I booted back up after unplugging the unit for several minutes, and popped in Happy Feet. Still blank screen on my HDTV from the HDMI>DVI connection. Toshiba had said to try unplugging the cable & plugging it back in if I still had problems. But I have an HDMI switcher. I just changed the switcher from the XA1 input, and the player's LED said "no HDMI connection", and then "Stop". I switched the HDMI switcher back to the XA1 and pressed "play". My TV screen flashed a few times, then it synced, and all was OK.
The 2.1 FW did help a little with Happy Feet. I had the dreaded lockup at the 28:45 mark last night. Tried it with the new 2.1 FW, it stuck at that point for a few seconds, and then continued playing.
