Any of you guys know when this can be expected?
Unit still working but not showing any on screen menus due to a power failure during update , so before I send it off , just wondered if its worth waiting for the next update.
See my previous thread about the failure:-

Get the machine back to Tosh ASAP. Have they got back to you. I've found their customer services to be rubbish.

All the best

Hi Bri,

The player has actually updated to 2.7 which is why it keeps kicking out the update disc , its just that at the point of the update that the onscreen was being done the power went off!
All discs play fine and sound is still as it should be its just that I have no onscreen if I want to change any settings!

Am hoping a new firmware install will update everything and bring the player back to how it should be!!
If this does not prove to be the case then Tosh here it comes!

No details yet....Fingers crossed for forced '24 fps' for those that need it. The rumoured date is end Feb/beginning March.

Hi KF

Any idea what the update will do or should I say is supposed to do?

Cheers
Bri

Hi mate :)
As sdb123 said the forced 24pfs and some HDMI handshake issues,i heard it might come as early as the beginning of Feb...................but as per usual it's just rumour. :confused:

was there supposed to be a 7.1 up-date due?

Are their any HD DVDs released or planned? Doesn't seem particularly important at this moment in time - most (all?) films don't use it and, for those with 7.1 setups, the receivers will do the work.

From babelfish translation..

1. At the time of image setting, when resolution setting "- 1080p/24Hz" being, "automatic operation" or it tried to be able to select "1080p/24Hz" in frame rate. (1080p correspondence is only HD-XA2)
2. It tried to draw up with the other equipment, to be able to play back HD DVD-R/DVD-R of AACS non correspondence.
AACS: The next generation copyright protective technology (Advances Access Content System)
3. The language cord/code became part modification. (The Indonesian language: ID and Hebrew: HE and Yiddish language: YI and the Javan language: JY)
4. Playback ability it improved.

Number one looks like an option for selecting automatic and forced 1080p24.. woohoo.
If the XA2 has it that means it's a good sign for the EP30/35 getting it soon as well.

I was under the impression that Toshiba unified the XA2 and XE1 firmware since people were able to apply the XA2 v2.7 update to the XE1.
