Wayne I believe you'll really be impressed with video on the A3, it is nice and for $99 you can't hardly go wrong with the purchase....I'll have a cup of hot cocoa for you. Stay warm!

I did get the 2.7 firmware downloaded today (Thanks Wid!) and still cannot watch the HD-DVD Bourne Ultimatum!

Prior to the update it locked up at the 00:57:20 mark, after the update it locked up at the same point and a message came on the screen 'Error Code 408bc504-Cannot Read Disc', I made a call to Toshiba and they seem to believe it's more than likely a bad disc, he also said to return the disc and get another. I skimmed through a couple of SD-DVDs and it never did skip so I'm hoping the firmware update fixed the problem. Toshiba also told me that if the problem persist I'll then have to send the unit in for a repair.

Jack, I'm hoping the 2.7 firmware will take care of the issue.

Maybe that's what it needs, a proper break-in. ;\)

LOL! Yeah, get a hammer and beat on those discs and everything will play just fine. \:D

Jack, here is an informative thread from another site regarding this 'Error Code' issue.....

HighDefDigest


The earlier firmware versions are first brought up but later in the thread they are up to the 2.7 version.

I've had that code on my X2 several times, but only with rented HD DVD's from Netflix. Usually me wiping the disc clean fixes the problem.

Thanks, Rick. You're, obviously, not the only one to have experienced this problem. \:\(

Looks like it's sold out at Future Shop. Best Buy actually has the same model on sale for $199 if you want to spend $100 more and they have lots left.

Nope you can get it online right now. At least at Bestbuy.ca that is.
