HD-DVD Firmware links for all models - Page 3

post #61 of 154
Got my 3.0 too... is there a list/thread discussing the update? I always like to read through that before pulling the trigger, to make sure that I'm going to be happy with the results.

My A-1 has 2.0 (?) on it right now and has been working great for over a year. I'm hesitant to mess with it... unless I'm going to get something cool.


EDIT: Duh. Right here: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1024012

I must be blind.

[quote=N8YWF;13799699]The hex change is the same on the A2, A20 and XA2.

Open up the ISO in HxD and edit 0A8C (2700) to something higher than 0AF1 (2801). For example you could use 0AF2 (2802).



I am new to this, and before doing any editing, i want to be sure i know exactly what you are saying.

I have a Hex editor, and have downloaded the 2700 version of software for the A2. Now are you saying i need to edit all occurrances of the 0a8c or just the first one?

Just the first one. If you use HxD then edit the blue highlighted spot shown in the picture.

I managed to succcessfully downgrade the A2 to 2.7. However, my problems remain.

Ever since I upgraded to 2.8 from version 2.7 the A2 will not play any standard definition DVD. It will start then freeze after about five minutes. Then it will continue to play and freeze again.

I had hoped reverting back to 2.7 would fix that problem but it has not. The problem only appears while playing any standard def video. An HD DVD will play flawlessly.

Any Ideas?

Why the hell did they ever add the resume feature? Why was it never there to begin with?

I may have missed it here somewhere, but has there been any firmware updates for the HD-A3 to correct the hanging on the welcome screen?

My backup player is an HD-A3 and I checked to see that it worked, but it will hang at Welcome about every other time I turn it on.

So what happened to all the rumoured A35/A30/Ep35/E30 etc multi-region firmware hacks?
post #72 of 154
For A-30 owners - Toshiba has available on line the latest firmware upgrade, 3.0. It has not appeared on the web download site, but if you have an ethernet connection and a hight speed connection, it takes about 10-15 minutes. There are 38 items in the upgrade to be download as a 51MB file.

Thanks for the alert!

Have there been any reports on what improvements or changes were made with Version 3.0?

I have updated the first post thanks to the notification from N8YWF. All models have v3.0 links.

Is the "jaggies" problem with firmware 2.8 and 3.0 for the XA2 only for HD-DVDs or for upconverted SD-DVDs as well?

After reading all of this, I dont think I want to update my A3. I mean, everything looks fine like it is. Could someone tell me what the benefits would be? I just dont want to run into problems when I dont have any now.
post #80 of 154
Do someone know/how if I can use the A35 FW 1.100 to downgrade the european EP35 (FW 3.003)?
post #81 of 154
Anyone know what the stamps/area in the hex editor for the A3 firmware to take it back to 1.3 from 3.0? I'm trying to downgrade because 3.0 is causing major skipping in my A3. Is it the same for the other firmware that's been discussed in this thread?

Thanks!

I have updated the first post with links for v4.0 for most models. The A30 and A35 have v4.0 links but they are too small.

If/when Toshiba fixes them, I will update the first post again.

What's up with the different file names? I doubt Toshiba would make a rollback firmware. It must be just renamed to the disc part numbers? I do like a good conspiracy theory.

I just posted the working 4.0 links for the A30 and A35. I also ripped off some more links from N8YWF.
post #88 of 154
Can anyone who updated their A-30 confirm that they can actually get 1080p output? Mine is set to 1080p in the settings, but always lights up 1080i. I was able to get 1080p24 prior to this new firmware... (although it had jaggies for AVC).

If it works, let me know if you used the firmware found on first page of this thread, or if you downloaded it via the player over the internet.

Edit: Figured it out. 1080p24 works great on the A-30. I'm using an hdmi powered splitter which doesnt seem to want to accept 1080p24 from the A-30, but does from PS3.
post #89 of 154
Was it the A2 or the A3 player that is compatible to the Venturer player? Does the toshiba provided firmware work or do I need venturer firmware?

If a small note about this was in the first post be very helpful

Edit: I found the answer myself I believe:

Venturer HD DVD SHD7000 uses the identical fw as the Toshiba HD-A3
