Doesn't look like we're getting 1080p 24hz with this one. Just more of the same compatibility tweaks.

Firmware Update Version: 1.6


Applicable Models: HD-XA2, HD-A20, HD-A2, HD-A2W, and HD-D2.


Q1. What does this update do?


A1. This update addresses some problems Toshiba has identified with HDMI/DVI connectivity and disc playback.


Q2. When I connect my HD DVD Player to my HDTV or HD Monitor using a HDMI to DVI adaptor cable or a HDMI to DVI adaptor, the output resolution of the player remains fixed at 480i. Does the new firmware address this issue?


A2. This firmware update addresses the issue. Should you continue to experience problems, please contact Toshiba Customer Solutions at (800) 319-6684.


Q3. The HDMI output does not work or works intermittently with the HDMI or DVI input on my HDTV or monitor. Does the new firmware address that problem?


A3. The firmware update addresses and improves HDMI and DVI connectivity. If you still experience problems, try disconnecting and reconnecting the HDMI cable. Make sure your display input is set to HDMI (or DVI). If your display has more than one HDMI/DVI input, make sure that all connected HDMI/DVI source devices are powered on (even if not in use). If none of these solve the problem, please turn off the TV and the HD DVD player. Check all connections. Disconnect and reconnect the HDMI cable. Turn on the TV first and then turn on the HD DVD player. Should you continue to experience problems, please contact Toshiba Customer Solutions at (800) 319-6684.


Q4. During HD DVD playback I sometimes experience pixelization, block noise or audio dropouts. Sometimes playback freezes or stops. Sometimes, playback is not smooth. Does the new firmware address these issues?


A4. This firmware update addresses various playability issues. You should also check to be sure that the disc is clean and, if the disc will not operate at all, that you are inserting the disc with the right side up. Should you continue to experience problems, please contact Toshiba Customer Solutions at (800) 319-6684.


Q5. Do I need to install prior firmware updates before installing the current firmware update?


A5. No. The current firmware update includes all of the prior firmware updates.

This is the same old FAQ Toshiba posts for any firmware upgrade. To me it's yet another bug fix with unknown side effects.

me, too...I'll keep trying (and probably perpetuate the problem...
)

Yup, got a 1.5 disk in the mail for my A2 today.


I keep trying on the ethernet for my XA2 and it keeps saying its up to date.

If it's anything like the 1.5 update, the ISO likely will be found on the Toshiba Canada server/support site.

Edit: Just checked there, and it's still the 1.5 ISO.

I can't get the update either. It says software up to date. I was hoping this would be the firmware to end all the compatability issues once and for all. I just got the 1.5 disc the other day and I don't even need it.

My A2 is currently downloading the new firmware. However, my XA2 says that it is already up to date. I don't know if I can only have one download session per IP or the XA2 1.6 firmware isn't available yet. I'll try my XA2 again after my A2 is complete.
