    Hi

    May as well give it a go! Not sure what 1.5 does though! Have sent PM with address details and will forward to next person on list.

    Thanks a lot

    Just got off the phone with Tosh they have confirmed that there is a known issue with the online updating server (not being found) so anyone else trying to update via the internet your more than likely wasting your time so give them a call and request the CD or wait for one to be passed on via this thread.

    The quickest way to get hold of the disc is to send an email to the Toshiba helpdesk, it normally arrives within a couple of days. The first time I asked the disc took 3 days but the second time they replied to my email asking for serial number etc.
    I've listed the contents of the email that I send below, just copy & paste it into an email addressed to [email protected] and fill in your own details, you can just forward the same email to them each time there is an update disc available.

    Dear Sir or Madam,
    Please could you send me a firmware update disc (version...) for my Toshiba HD-E1.
    I cannot update over the internet as the security settings of my router
    will not allow the connection and cannot be changed.

    Model: Toshiba HD-E1
    Serial Number: ..................
    Purchased from: ................
    Date of purchase: ..............

    My address is:

    ....................
    ....................
    ....................
    ....................
    ....................

    Contact telephone number: ........................

    Many thanks for your help in this matter.

    Can the next person on the list let me know if they still want it. I also ordered a disc from Toshiba as it costs nothing, so could have 2 copies to send after the weekend if the post is up to scratch. :)

    Boo hoo hoo! 1.5 killed my player!!!!!!

    I received my disk this morning did the update, waited for it to eject the disk and power down, I removed the disk powered back up checked that it had updated to 1.5 turned it off and went to work.

    Come home this afternoon thought I would watch a movie turned the unit on and its stuck on welcome, absolutely nothing works no buttons on the unit or the remote, I can only power it down by removing the mains.

    I'm frikkin gutted, just waiting for Tosh to call me back :suicide:

    Update:

    Tosh have diagnosed the unit as faulty and as its less than 28 days old they have given me a ref number to get it exchanged, but as I purchased it from Empire Stores they are not interested in the ref number but gave me 3 options of either;
    1. return it for a refund.
    2. return it and once they have it they will credit the account then send another out.
    3. buy another one while I return the faulty one and they will refund the charges once they receive the faulty unit (but strangely they could not give a time scale of how long the refund would take, the OP suggested either 1 or 2).

    I picked option 2. so now it looks like I'm going to be without my E1 for around a week or two.

    I'm surprised that Tosh could not deal with this themselves and supply a replacement direct (would have been a whole lot easier).

    I've got the 1.5 update disk fresh from Toshiba.


    Took a while to do its stuff. I should have timed it but if that was 10 minutes that was the longest 10 minutes of my life. :eek:

    Anyone else want it?

    Hi guys,

    Can you order the disc off the Tosh website or do you have to call them?

    Hi Mate. Go to setup. Select General. Select Maintenance. Select Update. on the update menu you should see the firmware version with the option to update yes on no. hope this helps.
