Talking Update Xbox 360 HD DVD Update Next Week

UPDATE UPDATE..POSTED TODAY ON XBOX.COM forums, it appears the update should hit mid next week. Sorry for the double post, wanted to make sure everybody sees this!!!




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!

I sure hope this works.
It would be nice to use my DVE to calibrate my tv.

Mark, they are updating a number of things, but the most importnat are audiosync issues, addition of DTS output, the :night mode" fix for DD (this will fix the level issues people ahve been having), and compadibility issues with a number of discs......

All I hear about regarding compatibility concerns Universal Combos (Children of Men, The Good Shepherd, Smokin' Aces, etc.) but what about Weinstein titles? My copy of Lucky # Slevin will not load at all, I get the "can't load disc" error message, and two other Weinstein titles that I rented gave me HUGE loading problems but eventually worked. I have only attempted to use three total Weinstein discs, and I'd hedge a bet that if I tried others, I'd have problems with those as well. It's a shame that Weinstein doesn't have higher profile movies, or we'd probably be hearing about extensive problems with their discs, as we are with Universal.

^ I wonder if it's a player issue for you, since I've never had loading issues with ANY movie and Lucky # Slevin worked flawlessly on my add-on.
