We admit that, for most of you, pics of Toshiba's HD-XA1 HD DVD player from every conceivable angle probably won't be as exciting as similar shots of, say, the latest from certain gaming or computing companies. Nevertheless, we can't help but feel a little frisson from finally getting to see this box in action. Or inaction, since there are no shots of it actually showing any HD DVD flicks. Still, courtesy of AV Watch, we get to see some of the setup screens (in Japanese, of course), the remote, and the inputs, which will have to tide us over until this player (and some accompanying content) finally makes its way to US stores.
