HD DVD-R Playback Now Possible On Both HD-XF2 & HD-XA2
Toshiba (Japan) has released v2.8 firmware update for the HD-XF2 and HD-XA2 HD DVD players released in Japan.
Among other improvements and changes, this firmware update also adds HD DVD-R playback.
Video content burned onto an HD DVD-R disc (conforming to applicable HD DVD and AACS specifications) can now be played back on both players.
Further details of this firmware update plus instructions on how to obtain/install this firmware update can be found here.
Do expect similar firmware update being announced for HD DVD players released in other countries... probably within the next few weeks.
