Enjoy in good health. Very interesting reading

um.....where do you see "by mid week next week"? maybe I am not reading in the right place but I see no mention of that date.

I sure hope it is though. This is crazy how long the wait has been to get half decent sound out of this thing. My standard DVDs sound better on my Philips DVD player via coaxial than this thing.

sigh....

having to test every disc from every region must be a lot of work for not so many people


and if they find a problem with one or two discs, they have to fix it some how then probably start over testing all the discs from square one


that lengthy process could explain the delays with the update

UPDATE UPDATE..POSTED TODAY ON XBOX.COM forums, it appears the update should hit mid next week.




1. less than a week
2. yes your player should update itself if you're signed into live and attempt to play an hddvd. if you don't have a live connection, you should be able to download and burn the update to a cdrom.
3. as far as we can tell, we've fixed the problem to the point our a/v sync is better than the current toshiba firmware. so if there are subsequent issues, they'll most likely be content authoring problems.
4. i'll post on these forums, but majornelson.com as well as xbox.com will probably call it out as well.

thanks for your patience!
