Bitstream DTS HDMA and Dolby THD: yes
480i resolution via HDMI: no (can do 480i over component )
Upconversion about the same as I have seen from the BD30, S300, LG BH200= average.
When having the 8.8 do the upconversion via the Reon, there is a noticeable difference.
Load times are on par with what has already been mentioned. Pretty strong.
No resume play.
2 channel analog out.
No handshake issues with the 8.8.
a-b comparison with the LG BH200 PQ wise is almost identical for BR.
Others have reported that the resume play worked on their player. The 2 movies I tested resume play did not work.
Oh, I am overall very happy so far. Bummed about no 480i over HDMI, but oh well.
