Blu-ray with androidTV?

Anyone heard of new Blu-ray players coming out with androidTV? I think this will be the most future-proof/upgradeable "smart" OS/platform with android's popularity. We are looking to get a new UHD TV and if I can get androidTV in a Blu-ray, it would let me go with a bigger and cheaper TV (over 55" Sony with androidTV).

Blu-Ray player ouyput

I own a small TV repair shop and I am looking for a Blu-Ray player with a video output that will match my Accupel DVG-5000 so I can play reference material on it for the customer. J was looking at the Panasonic DMP-BDT360 as it will do 3d also. Has anyone done any test on this player or know of a player that puts out a correct 1080P signal without breaking the bank?

Thanks

For Blu-ray, you would be hard pressed to notice any difference between players. Panasonic and Sony are the two most popular.

The Accupel is hard to match. I assume you'll play bluray and don't want to put it through a lumagen? In other words, are you looking for a bluray as a complete deck or just as a source for something like the Lumagen.

What is breaking the bank? As a self contained unit, you are probably looking at the Oppo 103D for $600.

Question Upgrading Blu-Ray Player with Surround Sound

hello everyone,

i currently have a samsung blu-ray surround sound system, complete with a blu-ray player and surround speakers.
it's about 6 years old now, and the blu-ray player is really struggling to play disks so i'm looking to upgrade it.
i've been looking at new blu-ray players on amazon and all seem to have different connectors for speakers and look like i cannot connect my surround sound speakers to it.

is there a way through this to get new blu-ray players to work with my current speakers? my speakers are fine as they are and all i need upgrading is my blu-ray player.

thank you!

Welcome to AVSForum.

Is this a home-theater-in-a-box system? Or are you going through a receiver of some sort? What connections does it have? Or just tell us the model numbers.
