Default XA1, XA2, or A35 - Help needed!

Hey everyone I'm not sure if anyone can help me make up my mind any help/input would be great!

I have had issues with the XA2 1080p shutdown bug and Toshiba was great and replaced the unit with a brand new unit and sure enough the replacement does the same thing So I am now dealing directly with Toshiba again with this issue and I'm not really sure I want another XA2 back....incase I get another machine that has the 1080p shutdown bug.

I am wanting to request a different player for the exchange but not sure which I should ask for as I understand all three are still available via the warehouse. What would I miss from downgrading to a different player? Any firmware updates make the XA1 1080p and hopefully bitstream.......so confused with what to do!

I had the same issue last year

Hi, I had the same issue last year and I remember was the first case reported that time. How Toshiba solve that issue? They change the fan position because the XA2 after some time was so hot and turned off automatic, Toshiba Mexico did it and after that not problem again and I am happy now.

I hope this issue can help you, if you need something more please let me know.

Regards, hhhhdvd

By the way, the XA2 is until now the best upscaling player to near 1080p. Donīt changed. hhhhdvd

I would not even consider the XA1.
just not even worth looking into imo.
the A35 is better than the XA1 for sure.
If you cannot overcome the shutdown bug get the A35 for best performance after the XA2
good luck!

I'd live with the XA2 with the shutdown bug any day since the workaround is so easy. I have a XA1 and I don't think any firmware update could make it 1080P.
