I don't often post, but I've been following the issues regarding the BH200 closely.
I don't have a BH200, but I do own the BH100, and if they're dropping support for the 200, it pretty much goes without saying that support for the 100 will be dropped as well.
So far, it seems pretty clear to me that LG has no intention of upgrading the BH200 to handle BD-Live. However, what's unclear is whether they intend to fix playback issues such as what is occuring with the James Bond discs.
Last year, the first BD+ discs came out from Fox (Silver Surfer, Day After Tomorrow, etc.) and it took LG nearly a month to get out a firmware fix. Most of the other CE's were quicker in fixing the problem. One could argue that LG wanted to do it right rather than quickly. And I'll somewhat go along with that argument since the James Bond discs are the first ones that my BH100 has had a problem with since then.
However, I've seen no official word on whether LG intends to offer a firmware fix for the James Bond issue, either for the BH100 or the BH200. Last year, even though it took a month for the fix to show up, LG was very clear that a fix was coming for both machines.
I'm speculating a bit here, but I'm not overly confident that LG will be providing a firmware fix for the James Bond issue, as they've been quiet on the issue. What that means for me is that I have no idea whether or not current or future releases will work in my player. This is something that should concern not just us LG owners, but owners of Blu Ray players in general. At some point, nearly all CE's are going to want to drop support of discontinued models, as there's no money in firmware fixes.
At this point, I'm not overly hopeful that a firmware fix is forthcoming in regards to the James Bond issue, either for the 100 or the 200. I suspect I'll be out shopping for a new player relatively soon. And, trust me, if I do end up buying a new player it will not be the BD300.
