It looks like the price is twice that. Am I looking in the wrong places?

Now THAT's what I'm talkin' about - a disc player that weighs more than a baby.

But seriously, it does have IR in (and out) that the previous poster is looking for, and can slow time with its own gravity.

Hi all,

Is the DVD up conversion any better on a blu ray player than a DVD player? Also, have any up converting improvements been made over the past few years that would be generally noticed on any new and good model ?

Thanx,
Joe

I have found no better.

What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited.

Please remember that authorized D+M resellers are only allowed to advertise full list price. To get the actual selling price you have to call them on the phone.

Thank you, Rich86. I have been very happy with my Panasonic BD35 except for the very slow load times with newer titles, though it does play 99% of every BR I've tried. It's running the latest FW, which IIRC is about 3 years old at least.


The new house will have a dedicated theater (a 1st for me!) so the old Panny is staying in the living room. I will check out the newer Panasonic and Sony players.

Yes indeed.

* But everything is fine when using the HDMI connection in both Bitstream and LPCM audio out.

Since I use 2-channel only with my 105, not an issue for me.

Hi, looking for the cheapest blu-ray player which will not lag with blu-ray disks and audio. I have a receiver with 4K upscaling and a normal 1080p TV so I don't need 4K or 3D. My router is right behind the tv, I don't need wifi. I have a Roku 3 and also a home server to stream mkv's and apps, I don't need apps.

All the entry level players I find are in the $60-$100 range. Is there some player with just blu-ray (and DVD, CD) playback and perhaps an ethernet/usb port for upgrading firmware if needed in the $30-$50 range (I mean, I can get a blu-ray burner for that much, rip and stream via network so $50 is really my limit)? Of course, I would prefer a brand name.
