I am new to the forums forgive me if this is in the wrong section. I am an american living in germany and just tried to play some dvds I bought in the US and ran into the region issue. I checked for a hack and was unable to find anything easy, so we decided its time to buy a new dvd player.

I am no expert on these matters but was thinking this is the right place on the web to find some experts!

Here are some things I am looking for:

-Blu-ray (we dont own any blu-ray discs yet, but I guess its good to be prepared? assuming this doesnt raise the price too much)

-Region free (will be playing north american region)

-Strong codec support (we are very often playing media of various formats via a USB stick, do any dvd players allow for codec/firmware updating if something gets outdated? that would be nice)

-Good price (i dont need the best of the best, just something that meets the above requirements if possible.) Something between 40-100 dollars max.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated, it would be really cool to find a versatile dvd player for a good price that even has some good tips/backing in the forums.

Sorry, but you need to post in the "OFFICIAL "HELP ME CHOOSE A PLAYER" THREAD: Can't decide? Start HERE" thread that is a sticky at the top of the page.
