Toshiba's RD-A1 HD DVD Recorder Faces Delays

Bad news for all you HD DVD buffs out there; Toshiba's RD-A1 HD DVD has ben delayed due to some production difficulties, postponing the launch of the new recorder until the end of the month. While a delay of a couple of weeks might not seem like much, anyone who plunked down $3,462.00 to acquire one is probably a little miffed that they won't be shipping on time. The delays could also be to combat firmware issues like the ones seen on the company's HD-A1 HD DVD player, which has been slammed as being unusable at times.
