I'll be leaving for Florida on Saturday, and wanted to pick up my first BD player. With the Can $ being par with the US $, I can't pass this opportunity up.
I want a player that does all decoding internally and outputs Multi CH PCM, via HDMI, to my 1.1 HDMI Integra 7.6 AVR . I really would bite the bullet on a BD player that meets the following criteria:
1) Internally decodes DD+, DD True HD and passes it via HDMI as Multi CH PCM to my Integra 7.6 - HDMI 1.1 AVR.
2) Internally decodes DTS MA, I know... none do it, yet! (promised to do so with a confirmed FW up-date)
3) Is profile 1.1
4) Does a true 1080/24p (to complement my 60" Pioneer Kuro).
5) Excellent/Very good SD Up-conversion (like Samsung / Reon chip)
6) Comes with some free, mail in/in store movies (not a deal breaker)
7) Not interested in PS3
Does anyone know which BD player will cover all or the most of these. I am flexible (willing to wait for FW) on point # 2.
