Any new BD additions or special deals?
Just ordered "Sin City" for the kids to give Daddy for his birthday. Also picked up the Pixar shorts for the kids. Today, watched "Polar Express" with the kids - my first SD viewing. I figure if I want to be able to accurately determine whether the Oppo blows all others out of the water when it comes to upscaling I better start watching some SDs
But onto hardware. Just waiting for the Oppo to hit retail. Unfortunately, as a result of that upgrade, my HT guy's last visit will be dependent upon that release. Hopefully, the HDMI splitter (which some of you may recall did not want to recognize the Panny BD55) will not have any problem with the Oppo.
It's pretty sad that my Samsung LCD is already over six months old and we haven't even used it yet
. Since the splitter is not hooked up it only gets basic cable. And besides, my GC is MIA yet again. The cabinets aren't finished yet and I have my ugly steel pole screaming for a nice hollow column. And his tools are littered about the playroom. I just left him another message today telling him I thought it would only be right that he have an opportunity to bid on his tools that I put up on ebay
On another note, I am contemplating whether to go with a Marantz IS301 IPOD dock that is open box and supposedly fairly cheap (don't have an actual price yet but I think it retails for about $250) or the newly reported URC PSX-2 (runs around $400 retail) that integrates seamlessly with my remotes and can serve as a mini server. EH reported it as the Apple TV killer, which may be overblown. Any comments about either would be appreciated!
