Since we tipped you off last month about the Toshiba RD-A1 HD DVD recorder that was set to ship in mid-July, we figured you might appreciate an update on that, where now it's mid-July and the RD-A1 is not going to be shipping just yet. Toshiba has reportedly run into a glitch in the production process, delaying the shipment of the world's first HD DVD recorder until the end of this month. Perhaps this time they decided to correct firmware problems before shipping, unlike the unfortunate unpleasantness encountered with the HD-A1 HD DVD player.
