Default Toshiba (America) Releases v1.5 Firmware Update for 2nd-Gen Players

Just saw this on the HD DVD Format Blog. I'll try to update it later.

Quote:
Toshiba America has released the another firmware update for HD-XA2, HD-A20, HD-A2, HD-A2W and HD-D2 sold in U.S.. This release will update the firmware to version 1.5.

This update addresses some problems Toshiba has identified with HDMI/DVI connectivity and disc playback.

If you have broadband internet service, you may obtain the firmware update over the internet using the Ethernet port on the back of your HD DVD Player. Instructions for configuring the Ethernet port and downloading the firmware update can be found in the owner’s manual for your HD DVD Player. BEFORE BEGINNING THE FIRMWARE UPDATE PROCESS, BE SURE TO REMOVE ANY DISCS FROM YOUR HD DVD PLAYER.

If you do not have an Ethernet-based broadband connection for your player or prefer not to use one, you may contact Toshiba Customer Solutions and request that a firmware update disc be sent by mail.

The current firmware update includes all of the prior firmware updates

People are downloading 1.5 as I type. As far as what it fixes-same verbage used as for the 1.3 update.

I had an issue with The Hulk where my menu would just freeze when accessing the extras from the main menu (the disc would still be playing with sound but the cursor wouldn't move).

Playing it right now, accessing the extras and now everything is working fine.

I just called Toshiba about the 1.5 CD. It should be out in a couple of weeks. People (like myself) who received the 1.3 CD will automatically get it.

Can this simply be downloaded and burned to CD? I didn't see a download option in the link.
