Default AHH! HD-A2 Help

I got my HD-A2 today, and I feel I am knowledgeable on technology. Well my A2 won't update (or connect to the internet), and it won't leave a 4:3 letterbox setup. All the settings are set to widescreen (16:9 - tv and hd-a2 settings), and the internet is working fine (i'm networking certified, so this part is good for sure) so I don't know what the deal is with the player.

HELP!!! I want to see this baby work.



Side Note: My local BB didn't have Bullitt or NIN in stock today, uugghh.

Many of the A-2's with the launch firmware 1000(1.0) are unable to update via the ethernet port. Once you use a disk to update it to 1.2 you will be able to update it to 1.3 (released yesterday) via the ethernet.

Yes. Thank you, I actually grabbed the mirror for 1.2 off of AVSforum instead of waiting a week. Finally I got a great movie on. I notice a definite audio upgrade from the 360 add-on, and a little bit of a picture upgrade (might be in my head). But the upconverting should blow my previous/cheap upconverter out of the water. Well worth it.

I only got the 1.2 update, I still couldn't connect via ethernet after that. But everything else is working fine until I get a disc from Toshiba with the 1.3.

It says there is "No Out Connection"

Router - Good
Network - Good
Cable Modem - Good

Restarted Router - Still Good
Restarted Modem, Router - Still Good
Restarted HD-A2 - Still Good
All Network Settings In HD-A2 correct
Exact cord works in xbox 360

Still says "No Out Connection"

I'm Stumped
