    Is anyone able to play these in the Toshiba HD-E1, I get an error every time... Which is annoying.

    It's a demo disc, but the LG Super Multi Blue has no trouble with it?

    Any ideas?

    Just to confrim is it the HD DVD side that will not play or the DVD side? If it's the DVD side it will be R1 (IIRC all combo's are US) and thus not supported by the E1.

    It's the dual layer variant, and all that happens when I insert it is I get the numeric error code (the number of which I've forgotten!)

    Which particular combo disc's are having problems with?
    There are 4 combo disc's that have had the same issue you are having widely reported.They are Children of men,Hollywoodland,The good Shepard and The departed.If it's one of these titles you can return it to the place you bought it or to Universal direct for exchange (not all copies are affected apparently).
    There is a new Toshiba firmware update (v1.5) due for release very soon that is reported to "fix disc compatibility issues".Your player can download this direct from it's Ethernet connection.

    Ahh, cool.

    This disc is actually a demo disc from CES a while ago. I wanted to find out if it worked before I actually spent proper money on some of the real ones!
