This is really important since intial reports seem to indicate that downloading through the ethernet port and burning an iso are yeilding different results.
Updated to v2.0 via downloaded .iso burned to CD-R with Nero 7 (4 steps as opposed to 5, as some have previously reported). I, too, can confirm the presence of severe jaggies on 1080/24p AND
1080/60p with this update and that Transformers (as well as others) is a complete and utter mess now. Before even looking at Chapter 5 (BumbleBee grill and hood), I could immediately see that the rotating Autobot hand on the initial menu/set up screen was jaggied to hell and back. The only benefit I can see with v2.0 is that HBR audio is now vastly improved, stability-wise (locks on like a clamp when skipping chapters). Alas, no way this can even begin to compensate for these monstrous jaggies, so (thanks to Unbiased, a true savior!) I reverted back to v1.3 and all is right in the world again.
Maybe Tosh will finally get these players working to spec prior
to making Blu-ray units, as has been rumored? It's one thing to not have a presumed "improvement" function properly (and there's no excuse for that, either), but to issue f/w updates that break what's already fixed and/or working?? I just don't get it.... Anyhoo, I'm staying with v1.3 til they can get their sh*t together. I swear, this is like a bad marriage: You want to get out, but the cost is too great.
