Default Upcoming features on the Toshiba HD-XA2?

Upcoming features on the Toshiba HD-XA2?

FIRST PUBLISHED Aug 9, 2007
With the announcement of third generation HD DVD players Toshiba introduced 1080 24P playback and HD audio bitstream to the HD DVD format.

What about the 2nd generation top model the Toshiba HD-XA2? Will it get these features in a firmware upgrade?

I talked with Toshiba about the issue and they could confirm that they don't plan to let down loyal costumers. On September 4th they will issue a firmware upgrade to the XA2 enabling it to support 1080 24P playback. They are also working HD audio bitstream over HDMI support but could not give a specific date on this upgrade.

If you have a set that can show at a mutile of 24. Plus if it is actually pulling the 24P straight off the disc it would be better. I don't know though if it's still going through the 1080i intermediate step. I do know that it is working fine at 1080P24 on my XA2 now.
I noticed there are also two choices for RGB output as well as a choice for the Twin disc format(HD DVD or DVD)
