Xbox 360 HD-DVD Auto Update Today

Have you bought an HD-DVD drive for your Xbox 360? If so, you’ll very probably find some new and/or improved functionality with it after today’s auto-update.

Expect at least the following:

Added option for user to select from the following audio output formats via TOSLINK or HDMI:
o Digital Stereo (2 channel PCM)
o Dolby Digital 5.1
o DTS 5.1
o WMA Pro

  • Added “Dynamic Range Control” toggle for digital audio output
  • Improved HD DVD networking support
  • Improved HD DVD title compatibility
  • Improved performance with MPEG-4 AVC / H.264
  • 1080p via HDMI is supported on the Xbox 360 Elite with HDCP compliant displays
  • Improved parental controls

Sounds like a pretty good update to me! Now, if only I had an HDTV to watch hi-def movies on, I might get one of these…
