Not hot news, but worth a mention as it’s recently been circulated as a bulletin to branches of a major retailer.
If you have a Toshiba TV and find that there are audio problems via HDMI – typically echo, or distortion – then you need to apply a fix. It was made available in April (hence not exactly hot news), but clearly not everyone has installed it. And you won’t notice it until you’ve been using HDMI for a while, so if you’re thinking of investing in a BD player or an HD receiver, it’s worth checking the version in your set’s menus. If the date is before April 2010, you should update.
Details of the affected sets, together with download links, are on the Toshiba support page.
