Toshiba's latest HD DVD player gets pushed back slightly

Toshiba's HD-XA2 HD DVD player is slightly off schedule according to the folks at Engadget HD. The player was first scheduled to make an appearance in the last week of December, but has instead been delayed until January 3. That is when the first wave of shipments are expected to take place according to "DTV Tivo Dealer," a retailer on the AVS Forum.

The HD-XA2 would mark Toshiba's second “Generation 2” HD DVD player to hit the US market. The first was the HD-A2 which started showing up on retail shelves earlier this month. That player retails for $499, features HDMI 1.2 support and outputs at 1080i.

The HD-XA2 on the other hand retails for $999, supports HDMI 1.3 and will initially offer support for 1080p/60. A firmware update is scheduled to be released sometime in February which will enable 1080p/24 support.
