I just updated my Toshiba HD-E1 from 1.5 to 2.0/T22M. No idea what the improvements are.


Here is a link to official downloads:

And here's proof that the chroma bug is now fixed, photographs of my LCD screen displaying a test pattern in Digital Video Essentials. Red in the opening titles of 12 Monkeys and Total Recall looks much better.

My HD-A2 is updating as I type this. Don't know to what version yet. I'm currently at 1.6.

A few of us here in Australia have downloaded this tonight. Not fully tested yet, but one user reports that it looks as though it now fully supports 24fps. Will confirm tomorrow.
Boot time is slightly faster.
Apart from that, I cant see much else thats new.

You are special, you were the first one to post

I'm updating my A2 as we speak. I may see if this 2.0 firmware fixes the HDMI->DVI black crush problem.

I'll report back later.

2.0 should add something. I remember 2.0 added THD to the 1st gen units.

Seems about the same to me

Is it absolutely necessary to do an "Initialize" after the update in order for the firmware changes to take effect?

THERE IS NOW A VERSION 2.0 FIRMWARE FOR THE A2, XA2, A20, A2W, and D2 located on the Toshiba support page...

I downloaded to my A2 minutes ago.

I just updated my A2 from 1.6 to 2.0. I did not do an "initialize" after updating (not sure if you have to or not).

Boot time and disc loading time does not seem to be any better.

Tried HDMI->DVI again. With 1.6, I had black crush to my Sony KF50-WE610.

I still have black crush. King Kong is WAY too dark. DVE pluge pattern doesn't even display the blacker than black bars. I cranked my brightness up 20 "notches" and couldn't see anything.

Everything still looks good through Component, which is what I've been using and what I'll continue to use, I guess.

Not sure what this update adds in terms of major functionality. I would think it must be something significant to warrant the 2.0 number.

Checked for 24p support on Euro XE1. Projector still reports 60Hz.

No, just a restart/reboot which happens every time you power on.

FWIW -- My A2 included that option with both rev 1000 (original) and 1.6.

Hi Chris,

This update didn't address the incorrect colorspace problems, at least not on my setup.

OK, thanks, thought it was just video and auto before. I'll delete that part of this post.
