    I have the same Toshiba RD-XS52. I recently bought a new Samsung 650 LCD TV. When I plug the HDMI into from the DVR to the TV, the DVR locks up. I found a FW update on the Toshiba Canada website, but I don't know if Canada FW will work in the US.

I tried the firmware found on Toshiba Canada website, it doesn't work. I believe the US version of RD-XS52 firmware is not upgradeable. The site said the firmware is for RD-XS52SC. You guys got it to work?

I turn on blu ray player and it goes to the regular sonybluray screen and as soon as disc starts to load, screen goes dark and no picure but I can see its playing by the counter


Try updating your player's firmware. You can download the firmware file from sony's website. The blu-ray players require many updates because the blu-ray discs have format changes and special numbers that the player needs recorded into the firmware so the newer movies will play. Here is a link to the download page for the BDP-S300 player. http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=BDPS300&LOC=3
You will need to select the download for your operating system. Then you will need to burn the files onto a cd-r disc using the "burn image" option of your burning software. Once the disc has been made you can load it into your blu-ray player and then update the firmware. once updated it should bring your player back up and running again. These players require periodic updates. The newer players that can hook up to the internet update automatically when hooked up to the internet.

HDD Corrupt


I have the XS35 and the HDD drive is curropt. Can I do the following?

1. Download the Toshiba firmware update:

2. Burn the ISO to a CD-R disc. ImgBurn is an excellent free burner for this.

3. Insert the CD in your unit. It will auto-install the firmware. Follow onscreen instructions. Takes about 10 minutes total.

After the update, my existing HDD shows are playable again, and I can record and playback from the HDD. I bet it would be a good idea to periodically backup your shows on DVDs, and regularly reformat the HDD.

Toshiba DVD recorder problem


Generally, this problem is caused by bad sectors or other problems on the hard drive and can be resolved by going into the setup menu and re-formatting the hard drive. Of course, all recordings on the hard drive will be erased, so spin them off to dvd first. Be sure to have unplugged and replugged the unit immediately prior to going into the setup menu (don't try to record anything). If this doesn't work, no-one will repair this unit locally, as it must be returned to Toshiba's(TACP) depot for repair. Best of luck.
