Apparently Twilight's got issues with MOST the Blu Ray's which is why I turned against the Panasonic I was looking at first.

Fellas, what about that MKV information? Does it really play both 720p and 1080p on DVDRs or sticks?

Please!

Thanks so much! yeah its only with the blu-ray copy and so far Panasonic, Magnavox, Sylvania,A few Sony's among countless others have been having problems with getting it to play without error so if you have the JVC and the Twilight blu-ray that would be great because then I will know whether to buy.

I just put it in and its been playing without problems for the last 10 minutes. Loaded super fast. I've not had any problems with the disc with my BD-UP5000 either.

I just got the JVC last week and have been putting it through its paces over the last week and I have to say I'm very impressed. It has great upscaling of standard DVDs and very fast load times on Blu-ray's. I have not had ANY problem discs. I'm very impressed with this player, I almost can't believe that I only paid $200. I was considering the Samsung 1600 and the Panasonic 60 and I'm glad I went with the JVC.

Format Neutral BD-UP5000, JVC XV-BP1, HD-A35, HD-D3, Xbox 360 Add-on

Blu-Ray: 96

A deal breaker for me would be not being easily able to tell how much time remaining there is on a section (main feature or extra) of the disc, I am playing. It usually takes me several sittings to finish a disc I need time remaining to make a decision whether to shut down a session. AFAIK, the Samsung and JVC players only give you elapsed time and leave it up to you to figure out time remaining by subtracting it from the total time for the section you are playing. Sometimes the total time information is not easily available.

Thanks so much!!! I'm going to get it as soon as it either goes on sale at Amazon or I get a second amazon reward certificate to use on it. I will let everyone know how it does once i get it. I think I will enjoy this player.

Pretty sure I'm going with this player. I'm looking for something to replace my HD/DVD player, that will do most everything my computer and PS3 will do, all in one player that will be relatively easy for my wife to use. I'm surprised more players don't play video with usb connections, and was pleasantly surprised after this realization that the JVC does, along with mp3 support. Also happy I can get it at Buy.com for $230. From what I see in the manual, the unit will not stream content off the network, this is disappointing, but not crucial.

The jvc shows where youre up to and how long the disc goes for, just push the search button on the remote

I own both now and if you dont use the extra features of the oppo, i cant say you can justify paying double for it. At the end of the day they both are for watching blu ray movies and both pq and aq cant be picked by me at least (i no longer watch dvds)

Im only keeping the Oppo as we had a group buy here and we have zone free mods applied, which is a must in Australia, and is covered by local warranty.

Thanks. The manual just shows time elapsed in the display menu. They don't give a screen capture for the search menu.

I was able to get rid of a Standalone SD DVD/DVD-A player and add SACD so it just makes sense if you have those discs.

For BD playback with HDMI bitstreamed the JVC sounds like a no-brainer though.

Appreciate all your work, have had the Jvc for a couple months. Like it very much, no problems. Tonight not paying attention, put one disc on top of another, one got loose in the drive. As noted cover comes right off with 3 screws , then with two connections and 8 visible screws the drive with cover off in my hands. Able to take out disc and put back under 5 minutes. Myself am novice, but looks easy to glean more info.

"you push search whilst in play mode"

I'd expect that to switch it from play to search mode; if not, how *do*you search?

Dont be confused just because the button on the remote is called "search" its the same function as "display" button or "info" button on most other players.

Whilst you can do a search in the pop up screen it also shows the duration and where your up to as well on the disc playing

I don't understand why you say bitstreamed. If you have any receiver that can receive (not just pass through) audio over HDMI, even one without lossless decoders, you can use the lossless decoders on the JVC to send the receiver PCM over HDMI. If you had those decoders in the receiver, then you could bitstream the audio instead, but to little advantage.

Ok Amazon has the JVC at $250 right now I have a $25 gift card for Amazon which will take the it down to $225 my question is should I pull the trigger and get it now or wait for it to go lower? It's $199 at HH Gregg right now (instore only) so should I wait for Amazon to go closer to that or should I accept $250 ($225 with gift card) as thats as good as its going to get?

I stand corrected, I merely meant if you don't need analog MC

It's also only $229 at Buy.com, with free shipping, and they always have those $10-20 off of $200 coupons around, just google buy.com coupon, and they'll turn up, so you're looking at only $219ish...

I hope you waited, as it is now $229.99 at amazon. Use that gift card and you get it out the door for $204.99.

I waited and i am so glad I did i was at work when it dropped to $229 and i about screamed (my boss wouldve "loved" that lol). I very nearly bought it was $250 ($225 with the gift card) last night and if i had i wouldve hated myself. As it is i got it tonight for $204.99 and FREE SHIPPING!!! I cant wait till it gets here. I also got Twilight on blu-ray, the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy blu-ray, I know what you did last summer blu-ray and I still know what you did last summer blu-ray. I also got the breakfast club but i think it was standard i need to go look and also look and see if i got St. elmo's fire yet i cant remember. (of course it would be in standard because there's no reason to go blu-ray on the brat pack no matter how much i love them!! lol). I also got the new Stevie Nicks Chicago Live dvd I went standard on it though I may regret not going blu-ray there. oh well.

No, there is not. How we will install it will be a mystery, but in all likelihood we will have to burn it to a cd or save it on usb drive. Such a firmware might allow future updates to be downloaded from the internet.
