Firmware update for Xbox 360 HD DVD add-on Microsoft announced today that they had issued a firmware update for its Xbox 360 HD DVD add-on.
The updates include full 1080p HD support, the option to select audio output, improved parental controls, and added compatibility with HD DVD titles. Im sure owners of "Children of Men" will be happy with the latter update.

Users can choose to either update manually from Xbox.com or have the update delivered automatically when logged into Xbox Live. To have it automatically downloaded, you must be playing a movie in the drive when logged into Live.

this is a software update, not a firmware update.

It is sad that firmware updates are needed to ensure compatibility with the discs. They need to decide on a standard (not format) before we are forced to upgrade our equipment.

It seems that every few weeks new features are added to the HD and Blu Ray players that are not compatible with earlier hardware models.
