Default New Firmware 4.0 HD-XA1/HD-XA2/HD-XF2(japan)

So what Toshiba has released version 4 firmware for these devices, so that soon we will have here in Europe and USA.

2008.9.19] ソフトウェア・バージョン4.0をリリースしました。 Software version 4.0 was released.

1. 再生能力を向上しました。 The ability to play better.

2. Two. HD DVDディスク(アドバンストコンテンツ)再生時、一時停止状態が3時間継続した場合は停止するようにしま した。 HD DVD discs (ADOBANSUTOKONTENTSU) play, pause when you state that continued for three hours to stop.

P.D Sorry will not let me put the link, but it is toshiba in japan.

Let's hope this fixes the 1080/24p jaggies issue with MPEG-4 titles.

My Japanese is not native level but I think the meaning is something like

"HD DVD disc (advanced content) playback: if in paused state for 3 hours, will be stopped automatically."

I'll need to update my HD-XF2 soon but since it's equivalent of HD-A2 I won't be able to comment about any 1080/24p playback issues.

I haven't had any playback problems recently except with some of my self-recorded DL discs failing to load with my XF2. I hope the new firmware would somehow help with that issue.

I keep waiting for the firmware announcement that says:
"Enables playback of BD media and XDE upconversion capabilities" . . . .
I know - dream on . . .

Kannisto--thanks!
I thought maybe it meant you could stop HD DVDs and not have to start them over again from the beginning. (don't really know why I was thinking that)

The Reon upconversion is still better than the XDE capabilities.
