It will show the current version and the update version available. Since you haven't updated, then it should be 1.0/1.3 when you go to that screen. That means you're running 1.0 firmware and 1.3 is available. Running the update over the web is nice, just don't power down the unit or stop the update when it starts. And I highly recommend updating, it makes a difference on some titles.

You need a set hooked up to see the menus.
You could use wireless but you'd have to get a wireless adapter.

If you don't want to update over the internet you can download and burn a CD-Rom update disk or call Toshiba and have them send you one.

Karan2004m,
The setup is a button on your remote control,it only works when a disc is NOT in your player,then the rest will follow.


in order to check your firmware:

Yes Sir, I saw 'I think I love my wife' on DVD yesterday and upconversion was awesome. Though not the right movie to judge but still I can make out the difference in PQ clearly. Now I am really liking this A3

I would say the upconversion looks better then my PS3 & my add-on.

Plus, I love how quiet it is....
