Problems with Toshiba 2200

I'm having some problems with my nearly year-old Toshiba 2200. The video and audio are fine, but lately I'm seeing the following problems:

o On one DVD (THE KID), it hangs on the FBI warning and doesn't advance beyond it unless I hit SKIP. It has no problem playing correctly on my PC-DVD with PowerDVD.

o On another one (DINOSAUR), there is about a 30-40 second delay after playing one of the special features before it returns to the menu. This happens for all of the special features, not just a particular one. Again, on my PC-DVD, there is less than a 5 second delay before returning to the menu.

Does this sound like a problem that would be fixed with a firmware upgrade? I did the trick of leaving the unit unplugged overnight in hopes of resetting it, but no change.

I checked the firmware (zoom-6-0-6-zoom) and it showed 1- 1 0200-1. Does this mean the version is 1.02 or 2.00? Does anyone know what the latest firmware version is for the 2200?

I read in other forums about having to send the unit to Atlanta to get the firmware upgraded. Is this still true?

If I'm still within the 1 year parts warranty from Toshiba, will they upgrade the firmware at no charge?

Thanks for the help.
