Well, we'll see if I get 709 colorspace on HDMI from the XA2 this time around. I'm not holding my breath.

For those not seeing it via ethernet right now, FYI it probably won't be available by ethernet to everyone right away. Of course, this post will probably be buried and lost under posts saying people can't get it by ethernet.


Can we please keep this thread to just discussing the new firmware, it's fixes, and any problems it produces? No one in this thread is going to care whether or not you can update, there is another thread for that:

I just updated my A20 (A2 is getting updated now).


The 1080p60 bug is still not fixed. The forced 1080p24 that affects maybe 0.1% of all HD DVD users gets a sticky, but A20/A30/A35 users get no love.
