Default Gen 1 HD DVD players to get Firmware 2.3

Just got off the phone with Toshiba, they are sending out a Firmware upgrade disk for my HD-A1.

He said they just released it this week so hopefully they have fixed my HDMI-DVI issues that I had with 2.2

Yup, I just got off the phone with them to follow up on my FW2.2. They said FW 2.3 just came out and that's what they're sending me.

I don't think it's available yet on-line.

Which version are you running now?

FW 2.1 created so much havoc with my DVI connection that I reverted back to 2.0 via disc. FW 2.2 made all well again, and supposedly 2.1/2.2 enabled the web features for Blood Diamond & 300.

But then, I could be wrong.

And there is definitely a 2.3 FW out there. I was reading Home Theater Spot's review of Blood Diamond and noticed this -

Warner sent me a new firmware disc for my A1 (version 2.3) to be able to use the web-enabled features on the disc, which worked like a charm.

Default 2.3 Firmware available For Gen 1 HD-DVD players !?!

Toshiba's customer page for Gen1 HD-DVD players has updated and states Firmware v2.3 is now available. I'm going to try to download it in 10 minutes.

Default 2.3 Definitely available .. downloaded at 8.22 am EDT

Well, when I went downstairs after posting my previous post, the firmware update was not available yet online. So after some family time and visit to Dairy Queen .... the update was available. It took the usual (forever) to download and updated my HD-A1 with no problems. Checked the firmware version and it stated 2.3 now.

I've noticed no changes (YET) but from it's modest increase in version number I'd suspect that whatever is listed on the toshiba firmware page is all there is to it .....

I believe that version 2.3 is to enable web interactivity and of course fix various issues??
