Looking at picking up a blu-ray player for my parents. They have a Vizio 47" LCD display, and an older Onkyo 5.1 receiver (don't remember the exact model, but it only knows how to decode AC3 and DTS).
I am looking at the Samsung BD-P1400 basically because it is relatively cheap. I know it is only profile 1.0 but they have never watched a special feature in their lives, so that doesn't really matter.
My concerns are:
* This can bitstream Dolby Digital or DTS, right? And all discs will always have at least one of these to play? I'm not looking to buy $100 worth of analog audio cables here.
* I read a couple of reviews that said it wouldn't work with universal remotes, but most don't mention this. If true, this would be a complete show stopper. Is there a problem with an ordinary "learning" universal remote (not some piece of crud that came with a TV, or whatever)?
