Hi........is there a standard defintion multi-region hack available yet for the Tosh HD-A1.
Not for PAL discs, but my XA1 will play R3 NTSC discs. My Casino Royale looked (and sounded) spiffing!
Have you guys got many issues with hd dvd not playing correctly..freezing sound dropouts etc.I thought i had escaped problems but apparently not ,thats unless its a bad disc issue not the player itself.
it will only play discs from the 'R3 area' that are not coded as r3. Stick a R3 disc in like Angel heart and it will say wrong region. Stick a R3 disc in from say Deltamac and it might work as they are not coded as r3.
Cant believe that nothing has leaked out so far to enable SD multi region.
Surely Tosh must know that its likely to stifle sales to a degree, after all we want to replace existing kit not add to it and be stuck with out existing player just to play our existing DVD collections.
Well actually I guess I'd really like DVD-Audio and SACD playback as well to cut the box count even further but might just be tempted if Multi Region was a reality.
So come on Tosh part me from my Dosh and enable SD Multi Region
Some have reported problems that have been solved by gently washing/drying the disc optical surface to remove factory residues. Others have reported problems solved by updating the firmware. There currently appears to be a problem with a couple specific Universal titles, and I understand the studio is investigating the cause.
Course, there's also the possibility of there being a hardware defect.
PS. And if the disc is rental or borrowed, then there are possible playing surface problems due to prior handling.
