Default HD A35 Question

If I hook the A35 up to the internet with an ethernet line, can i download updates right from the internet without buring them to disc from a PC?

If so, how do you do that from the player?

Thank you

When connected to the Internet, the player will pull the updates from there. I've not had the chance to play with an A35 but on the A2 you press Setup, go to general I think, choose maintenance and then update. A pop up comes up saying you are at firmware X would you like to proceed. Select yes. Click the next buttons in the disclaimer section and then you are presented an update button I think. Click update and away you go.

All Toshiba HD DVD players can be updated via the Ethernet port, that is one of the main purposes of it.
If you read the manual it will tell you had to set it up, but basically the norm is to take all dics out of the player then go to the setup menu ---> Ethernet (one time setup for the Ethernet Settings )

I have:

DHCP On
Proxy OFF
MAC is blank (or default)
User Information is blank (or default)
NTP Server is On
Network Speed is 11Mbps Cable
Cookie Setting Accept


After that goto Setup ---> Maintenance ---> Update

Hope that helps. (Ofcourse I am using the A2 so your menu may differ a little)
