Ok, let me put it this way.
The BH200 is (according to the BDA) certified 1.1 compliant. That is, any 1.1 or earlier BR disc should
play fine. Are the discs people are having problems with 1.1 or 2.0? If they're 1.1, then while it's great that LG are working on individual fixes, the problem lies with the company releasing the discs, as they're probably not 1.1 compliant. If they're 2.0, then you cannot
expect them to work on the BH200 (or, any other <1.1 profile BR player).
With regards to the support removed from the firmware, was this ever officially supported? While it is odd that bd-r, etc was removed, there's probably a pretty good reason the code got pulled.
As for your comment about not buying Korean tech, you might want to investigate where the panel in your LCD tv/monitor was built..
I've said it once, and I"ll say it again - Feel free to bung your BH200 on ebay, I'm sure you'll be able to find it a more grateful owner, as well as making enough cash to go buy a "proper" Blu-ray player.
