Default New Firmware in JP for XA-2

The new Firmware has auto 24p (which is great!). More details i do not know and it is only, at the moment, available in Japan.

According to Toshiba's USA site 2.8 is now available

Firmware Update Version: 2.8

Applicable Models: HD-XA2, HD-A20, HD-A2, HD-A2W, and HD-D2.

Overview: As part of our commitment to provide world-class service to our customers, Toshiba is supplying this firmware update for use by purchasers of Toshiba HD DVD Player models listed above. This firmware update improves support for 1080p/24Hz OUTPUT and auto mode(for HD-A20 and HD-XA2), improves network connectivity supporting the download of web-enabled network content associated with certain HD DVD discs, and also addresses certain disc playback and HDMI/DVI related issues identified by Toshiba. In addition, this firmware update provides High Bit Rate Audio functionality for the HD-XA2 player. When integrated through the HDMI connection to a 7.1 capable multi-channel A/V receiver, High Bit Rate Audio has the potential to offer the latest in high definition surround sound.

In a few quick tests it fixed an HDMI handshake problem I had where I couldn't predict if I'd bet multichannel or bitstream. Seems to now stream correctly every time.

I set the 24p to auto, I'll try putting in some concert videos at 30fps tonight and see how it does.
