Toshiba Delays HD DVD

Toshiba's US division has delayed its flagship HD-XA2 HD DVD player to January, according to a dealer's report at AVS Forum. Previously scheduled for December, the launch of the $1,000 disc player has been pushed back due to production delays. Also likely to miss the ship date is support for 1080p video at the film-standard 24 frames per second, according to a separate poster; the code required is now expected as part of a firmware update that will debut in a few months' time. Core improvements over the now shipping HD-A2 remain intact and include an HDMI 1.3 port for deeper color. [Via Engadget]
