Short Version of Question:
Can I pause a movie, go away an hour, a day , or a week later and pick right up where I left off with a BD-A1000?
I have a Yamaha RX-A2000 which I use with a 2010 "slim?" PlayStation PS3 to watch 3D Blu-ray content. I also have a Logitech Harmony 1100 which has the PS3 contraption.
When I inevitably hit the wrong black button on the black PS3 remote, or hit pause and come back an hour later, the PS3 exits the movie, then makes me log back into PS3, work my way back to Video->BD-Disc, then.. the previews start (cannot be FF on Warner Bros) ... then the movie title comes up, then I have to figure out where I left off.. Imagine the looks on my kids faces when I blurt out "whoops.. hit stop instead of pause.. take 5 minute break everyone.."
How is "life" in general with a BD-A1000? Does it work like a Blu-ray player first, or do I have to walk through endless Hulu, Netflix, Youtube, or whatever? Looking forward to using my AV Controller iPhone app to control BOTH my RX-A2000 and a BD-A1000, or BD-A1010.
By chance is the remote back lit? Is it black buttons on black background?
BTW.. the Logitech Harmony 1100 is no "harmony" with PS3. Seems like it never works. If I have a half hour I can go through the pairing ceremony for the PS3 dongle.. but the PS3 then forgets about the unit..
