Re: Firmware 2.2 (& 2.3) for 1st gen Toshiba A1, D1, XA1 HD DVD players

2.3 was my first full firmware update done connected straight to the internet. Previous to that I did the download of the ISO file or waited for the actual snail mailed CD. I must say it was rather easier then I expected, just ran an ethernet wire from my router to the HD player and started the update. Took about 45 minutes to complete download and installation.

Since the addition of firmware 2.1 HD-A1 or HD-XA1 there has been an added page of internet settings to the users manual. An updated digital copy of the manuals can be downloaded directly from Toshiba if any are interested.

I just downloaded the revised manual for the A1.... does anybody else see a lot of the bolded text as being kinda "jumbed"....?

Ya I see some jumbled text also but I seen this previously too on the pdf. I have also downloaded the HD-A2 manual and noticed the text on this one seems ok so I been comparing them

Toshiba USA finally has a website for downloads.

http://tacp.toshiba.com/tacpassets-i...ngfirmware.asp

But I find the wireless internet connection I established with my player a lot easier, but slower.

I haven't updated my player and probably wont ever again, 2 times have I had my player bricked when updating. First was using a direct net connection and second was with the iso.

I didn't have any issues before but updated my HDA2 anyway via an ISO image burned to a CD. I've had no issues with the update.

Re: Firmware 2.2 (& 2.3) for 1st gen Toshiba A1, D1, XA1 HD DVD players

Firmware 2.4 is out for ethernet update. I am trying an update right now. 10% so far.

Edit: Update completed smoothly and the XA1 powered down by itself. A power up and going into the Update menu shows new firmware version:

2.4/1.0A/2.0T

Tried a HD DVD (HollywoodLand combo) quickly and seems that everything is still working fine. Settings survived -- I did not do an Initialize.
