Toshiba's HD DVD Player Upgrade Available

April 18, 2007
Toshiba has released its latest firmware upgrade for its second-generation HD DVD disc players (Version 1.5). This latest advancement comes only a couple of months after it released Version 1.3.

The new download first appeared a few days ago on Toshiba's official Web site for customer support and apparently the latest upgrade does not provide any new noticeable features, although it fixes some playback issues, according to High-Def Digest.

At the support Web site, Toshiba states, "Toshiba is supplying this firmware update for use by purchasers of Toshiba HD DVD Player models HD-XA2, HD-A20, HD-A2, HD-A2W and HD-D2. This firmware update addresses certain disc playback and HDMI/DVI related problems identified by Toshiba."
