If you have an HD DVD player, have you updated the firmware to 2.1 yet?  If so, did you have any problems?  PM me either way.

If you have an HD-A1, do not upgrade to firmware 2.1 unless you have firmware 2.0 on disc.  I have updated 5 times to 2.1 and I have had to roll back to 2.0 every time.  A rollback is not possible without a previous firmware release on disc.  Once upgraded, my HD-A1 will not output via the HDMI port.  I get the NO DISC banner, but once a disc (HD or SD) is inserted or setup is pressed, all I get is purple snow.  The sound works, but not the picture.  I cannot even go to setup.  I can view HD disc and SD disc over the component port, but SD disc will only display at 480P.  I get a message that upscaling to 1080i is not allow for those type of disc over this connection. 

I called Toshiba, and they said to unplug the unit for 5 minutes and then try it.  I get the same results.  Basically, Toshiba took my name, number, serial number and what my problem was and thanked me for calling. 

I have my HD-A1 hooked up via the HDMI port to a HDMI-DVI connecter to my tv.  They said that could be the problem, but that they really did not know. 

All I know is everything works fine on 2.0 and 2.1 totally screws it up.

Boykin, this is now a known 2.1 issue related to HDMI/HDCP handshaking through DVI - several of us discovered this several days ago when it was first released. 

So, you're not alone.  AVS-Forums have a ton of discussions around this.

I have Toshiba HD-XA1 connected to my projector through component output and audio out through Toslink and analog. I updated to FW 2.1 and have had no problems to date.

I didn't know there was a 2.1 yet. Good thing, I guess.

Version 2.2 exists in order to take care of issues with 2.1.  Response seems to be very positive.

I updated to 2.2.  It completed normally and powered down the machine.  Now when I turn it on I get "01 System Err".  Toshiba is going to repair it as it is under warranty.  They are sending a 2 day delivery UPS return lable, takes 2 days for repair, and 2 day return delivery.  I should have my working HD A1 back in a week or so.

Updated to 2.2 for my A1 with no issues.  I burned a .iso file onto a cd and all was good.

For those that want the .iso file to burn for themselves, here's the link:
