    I'm having problems with the US version of Training Day not playing (had 3 copies from different places).

    I didn't realise there were further updates since 1.3 when I got it although as all my other discs work fine, Toshiba say it isn't likely to be the player but will send out the 2.0 anyway.

    My question is, is there any XE1 (not E1!) owner willing to try out this copy of Training Day I have so I can find out if it's the disc or my player?

    I will send it out with a pre-paid envelope to return it. I'd really appreciate it if someone could do this for me as I just want to watch the film & don't know anyone with a hd player. Thanks, Lee.

    I really think it'll be the firmware. 3 discs should rule out a bad pressing.

    Could be a bad mastering.

    Well, the 2.0 update didn't fix it. Today, Toshiba said there are problems with the US Training Day combo disc. Only my copy isn't a combo & wasn't aware there was one.

    They recommended I wait until the next update sometime next month to see if that fixes it. I originally bought this back in March. Time to settle for the non TrueHd UK version I think!

    I've attempted to send you a PM but not sure it's gone as I had a few problems. Let me know if you've received it.

    Cheers

    Have you got your disc and the 2.2 update yet? If so has the update worked. If you haven't seen it already check the thread on the Wild Bunch HD DVD which I think is another Warners Title.

    All the best

    From what I read about the update I didn't think it would but I didn't want to depress you. Have you noticed any changes in the machine since the update?

    Also have you seen Argentofan's thread on The Wild Bunch?

    Cheers

    Nope, none whatsover! I didn't notice any difference when I updated from 1.3to 2.0. Really disappointed the machine has to be sent off. It's only one disc I have problems with but that's not the point.

    Just hope I get it back for when Transformers arrives!

    Btw, thanks for testing out my disc & getting it back so quick.

    My pleasure. Pleased that you don't appear to have any additional problems after the update. Hope Tosh get your player sorted out quickly or give you a new one.

    Best wishes
