    I bought the HD DVD drive in late August. It's good but I've noticed a couple of issues such as Matrix Reloaded freezing part way through. In addition, the disc menu system for Warner discs that appears at the bottom of the screen causes that part of the picture to disappear, rather annoying.

    I have found out that there is a firmware update from May 2007, the software disc that came with the drive was dated 2006. The new firmware is from the US site, has anyone installed this and if so, does it help? There don't seem to be any updates on the GB site I don't want to cause more problems than I solve. I'll have to burn it to a DVD as I haven't got X Box Live at the moment.

    Many thanks

    Can you not hook up to a m8's connection to download updates?

    I'm upto date with all the firmware updates and Matrix trilogy runs fine

    AFAIK, if you can get the US updates on disc this should be fine, the US and UK machines are identical and there should not be any problems using US updates..

    Hi guys,

    How do you find out what firmware your HD-DVD is running, and where can you go to get the update?
    Is it only over XBOX Live? Cant find it on the MS website.

    Cheers
