I think they were configurable from the manufacturer. My Niveus had a slim laptop style bd-rom but I've seen ones with hd-dvd.

Stereoscopic Player does. From what I gather it is a fork of MPC-HC that has a licensed MVC decoder (which is why its not freeware).

Some of the STB media players can as well (I think Mede8r is...

WOW! Yikes! When was this? I bought my case in Jan 2013, and of all the sites they had the best GD04 price.

Not that my info matters now, so thanks for posting that.

even if someone did crack a bluray player to act as a network share, that would never be a mainstream way to backup discs and it would never get an update again.

so wait...

WMC guide data will no longer come from Zap2it, and instead will come from Rovi (like the Xbox One)?

Who reported or determined this?

I'm interested to know why too. The Xbox One uses that kind of process for mixing system notifications into media files and it drives users nuts.

I don't think of Netflix streaming as a replacement for buying discs, renting them, or renting on demand. Its more like a supplement to whatever is available on demand from the cable company.

Exactly.

Like I rhetorically asked before, what would you do if the money needed to acquire all the bandwidth was more expensive than subscribing to every single premium cable channel?
