Toshiba (Europe) Updates Firmware of HD-XE1 & HD-E1 to v1.3

Toshiba Europe has release the first firmware update for HD-XE1, to version 1.3. Concurrently, the v1.3 firmware update is also available for HD-E1.

This firmware update addresses certain disc playback and HDMI/DVI-connectivity related problems identified by Toshiba.

If you have a broadband internet connection you can obtain the update on-line using the Ethernet port in the back of your HD DVD Player. There are instructions for configuring the Ethernet port on page 44-45 of your user manual. Page 58 of the user manual describes how to download the firmware update.

If you do not have an Ethernet-based broadband connection or prefer not to use one, you may contact Toshiba Customer Support and request that a firmware update disc be sent by mail. If you sent Toshiba the Firmware Update Request card included with your player, you will receive an update disc by mail from Toshiba as soon as it becomes available. Firmware update instructions will also be provided with the disc.

Please first refer to the document Firmware Update Information for Owners of Toshiba HD DVD Players: Models HD-E1 and HD-XE1 for full details of the update and upgrading instructions direct from Toshiba (Europe) before attempting to upgrade the firmware.
