Toshiba Releases Firmware 3.0 for First Gen HD DVD Players

In what very well may be the final update, Toshiba has released firmware version 3.0 for the HD-A1, HD-D1, and the HD-XA1 HD DVD players.

Toshiba says the firmware "Improves network connectivity for supporting the download of web-enabled network content associated with certain HD DVD discs, improves certain video and audio processing capabilities, and also addresses certain disc playback and HDMI/DVI related issues."

We do wonder if Toshiba plans on fixing the Mpeg4 AVC issues that are messed up in the latest HD-A3/HD-A30/HD-A35 firmware.

The latest FW for all HD DVD players can be downloaded here

    Patching up AVC issues?! Wait… I thought that that Toshiba/HDDVD was finalized! Now we have the confusion of 3.0 and 2.x firmware releases?!
