Hello, I live in the UK but I'm planning to import the second-generation Toshiba HD-AX2 player from the US early next year, after allowing a bit of time for any immediate firmware upgrades to be incorporated. I hope there will then be less need for subsequent firmware upgrades with this player than we've seen with the first-generation players, but I guess they will still arise from time to time. The reason I need the US player is that almost all my standard DVDs of movies are Region 1 (as I don't like PAL speedup) and I will also want my HD-DVDs of movies to play at 24 fps. My computer setup and home theatre setup are in different parts of the house, so I assume I'll have to connect my player up to the cable modem and to my computer LCD monitor when doing a firmware upgrade. The monitor has a DVI connection, but, as far as I know, the player will have an HDMI connection (and no DVI connection). So will I need to use a DVI/HDMI adapter cable? Or is there any other way I can connect the player to the monitor for doing a firmware upgrade? Of course the alternative approach is to request Toshiba to send an upgrade disc. But I'm wondering whether Toshiba in the US would be willing to mail upgrade discs to me in the UK? Has anyone in the UK been through this?
