re: Firmware 4.0 for 1st gen Toshiba A1, D1, XA1 HD DVD players

I'm still waiting/hoping for a firmware update (related to Toshiba's new DVD / HD initiative) that will allow playing video recorded on USB memory sticks that get loaded at a store's movie kiosk or via an internet download. This would be a natural use of the two USB ports on all HD DVD players.

That's a good one. Although, considering all the other a/v components out there that have USB ports with little to no capability, I would not hold my breath for upgrading a format that is largely abandoned. I use a Samsung 5000 now for both HD DVD & BD, but still don't have the heart to part with my XA1. Xlnt player!
And I don't know how long it will take for BD players to have full on-board decoding AND analog 5.1/7.1 outputs.
You either pay a lot, or forced to upgrade your a/v receiver to use HDMI 1.3.
That's part of the problem when you only have one game in town. Let's be thankful things did not go 'blue' any earlier, and we would have even less for the same money we have to spend today.
