I think if mp3 and Divx support were added also it would help sales as well. most bottom feeding dvd players do those things. Also upconverting through component cables would help as well.

RC Free including RCE would definitly help raising sales in USA and Europe and would be a "cost free" upgrade, while MP3 and Divx would involve license fees.


Every cheapo player from China ist RC free.

Region free doesn't matter for people who live in the U.S as most of the DVDs originate from U.S. However it's required for people in the rest of the world.

Will buy a Toshiba as soon as those things are available.


(+ mp3 + divx/xvid support would be great)

Absolutaly. Region free Dvd players would make a huge difference, especially outside the US.

I'll tell you what. If they Region free the HD players, i'd personaly grab another 2 players. I love my XA2, but seeing as I can't play my Pal disks, i'm holding off. I know of a few friends also in the same boat.

It would be a step in the right direction thats for sure.

You can't sell modified firmware, you don't own Toshiba's code.

I live in the US, but import alot of DVDs from all over the world. Region free certainly matters to me. I would love to have a hack that makes my A1 region free.

Illegal depends on the Country you are in and I guess if feel you need to profit from it then fine.


Almost all the hacks that people release are for the pure enjoyment of the accomplishment, not for the money.


Also for having a good feeling of letting others enjoy your work.

For what lil a A2 cost's on ebay, bought another yesterday for $49 using buy it now, time to put the A1 on back burner and get one, then your wishes could come true.

I bought a A1 from BB last sept '06, paid a ridiculous at the time $160 open box for it and cause it wouldn't play pal or region free sold it on ebay for $400.

Sounds like "Collector-scum" behavior - the kind of people who want to bask in the selfish joy of being the only one to own something. I run across them quite a bit - they'll have some rare demo disc or video brochure and won't make a copy for trade because they want to be the only one to have it. But they'll tell you about it - so they can have have their small-minded moment of thinking "I'm so cool, I'm the only one who has this!"


It seems that is what HDXA1USER is doing.
