Found 9th Jul 2008
Couldn't see this posted but there are fairly recent firmware upgrades available (June 2008 - version 3) for the following Toshiba HD DVD player models:

HD-EP30 & EP35
HD-E1
HD-XE1
HD-EP10

See toshibahddvd.co.uk/sup…tml for details

Thought this might help those who picked up the bargain EP10 & EP30's a few months ago.

Good to see that Toshiba haven't abandoned those that bought one just yet! :thumbsup:

Thanks, will need to have a look later to see what the new firmware does for the machine.

Not that easy to get hold of now, although there are a few floating about. Prices did drop to around the 50 quid mark but now seem to be starting at around £140. Amazon has a few used ones or try ]http//ww….uk or ]http//ww….uk and do a search. :thumbsup:

I do wish the hd dvd standalone players dropped to £50 as id prefer it outside of havin to use ym 360

thingthat gets me is why they chose blueray over hd???
hd is ment to be higher quality than ble ray

Argos have the HD-EP30 in their clearance sale for £100 (only collect at Store). None near me, but might be some available :thumbsup:

A matter of personal opinion. You'll get those that back HD DVD and those that'll back Blu Ray. I like many others have both but the big influence at the moment is the cheap price of Hd films as opposed to Blu Ray. :thumbsup:

hd dvd is better - the interface is a lot more friendly and the extras on hd dvd are better
plus hd dvds are too cheap to miss and a hd film is a hd film regardless of the disc

nice, what does this do.

I bricked my last EP30 doing one of these updates - just remember it can take ages on step4!!!!! :oops:

Updated mine last night and yes it does take a long time, but follow the instructions carefully you should be alright.

Did you burn the disc image to a CDR?

There's a pdf file showing the update details here: highdefinitiondvd.eu/med…pdf

just flashed using this and works perfectly, didnt notice any differences, still suprising thats this is supported by Toshiba!
