I am about to get my first BD player. I had decided on the 220 just when the 2013 Panasonic models were announced. I don't need 3D but I thought some of the other extras on the 230 were nice, but now I don't think I need them. The web browser will most likely suck and I will probably never use Miracast.
Can anyone think of any other reasons to buy the 230 over the 89? Will both play BD-RE discs if I ever get a burner?
I am kind of new to this. Is there any possibility that I could hook up a USB external HDD and be able to TIVO my discs, or is it playback only?
