Toshiba updates second-gen HD DVD players firmware to 1.5

Matt Burns

Attention owners of the HD-XA2, HD-A20, HD-A2, HD-A2W, or HD-D2 - really all of the second-generation HD DVD players. Toshiba just released a new firmware for your player that should addresses certain disc playback and HDMI/DVI related problems. O.K. there is two ways to get the update: 1st - simply download it via your broadband connection through the Ethernet port on the back, or - 2nd you can contact Toshiba Customer Solutions at (800) 319-6684 and ask for a firmware update disc. We are still wondering if all this updating is better for the consumer or the CE company. On one hand it does allow the consumer to always have a current edition product with all the right updates without worrying about what serial number they must buy. Then on the other hand, it allows CE manufacturers to produce a product not fully tested and then simply release an update when more testing is completed. Oh well, only time will tell.
