Does anyone know if the BH200 will have forced 1080p 24fps? I have a Crystallio II scaler that I will need to use for anamorphic and the due to HDMI EDID issues, the player will need to be able to force 24p regardless of EDID.
For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.
I have read and re-read the article, and I do not see where it says that the “BH200 will be profile 1.1”. The article does say in general that the profile 1.1 feature set is required for a player released after 10/31, and that no manufacturer has released a profile 1.1 player before the deadline, but when the article speaks specifically about the BH200 it only says that it “will include ‘full profile specifications’ for Blu-ray players”. That does not mean that the player will necessarily be limited to profile 1.1.
If you read the LG press release for the BH200 from Sept. 5 it says that the player will have “the capability to handle networked ‘BD-Live’ interactivity in forthcoming Blu-ray discs”. BD-Live is Blu-ray’s name for Profile 2. Profile 2 includes the Profile 1.1 feature set, but is not limited to it.
