I need to add a Blu-Ray player to my system. The current system is run by a Harmony Remote and the wife who demands/requires simplicity is comfortable with how to operate the system.
For me to have a hope of getting her acceptance, I will need to make the PS3 controllable with the Harmony. I know that this can be done, although powering up and down seems to be a limitation. My bigger concern is the UI on the PS3. Is there a way to have its operation default to being a DVD player, or is the user forced to go through a menu selection every time to say that you want to play a DVD? I expect that even though this sounds simple, that sometimes the wrong selection will be made and I will be forced to come and rescue her from some kind of problem.
If I can't make this thing dead simple to operate like a stand-alone DVD player, then maybe I need to just buy a stand alone player. Seems like a shame considering that the PS3 does so much more for the same money, and it is 2.0 compliant.
It would be great to hear from others who have faced this issue.
