    3.0 update is available for XA2. Installed it earlier in the week, haven’t seen any issues, also haven’t looked to see if it fixes some of the known issues.

    Some people complained that the old firmware caused “jaggies” when played at 1080p 24, did you experience anything like that?

    The 3.0 update is now available for U.S. models. Check the U.S. Toshiba site. Wish they would add DTS-HD and DTS-MA decoding.
