That assumes the Darblet is anything more than a ridiculous gimmick. I don't calibrate my system only to process my video.

Although I still have my doubts any Sony BD player could outstrip an...

Yeah, I tested an old bdremux that didn't work before and it still stutters badly. I stripped the audio down to DTS core, and while better, it still stutters.

!@#$ Sony. I didn't use the app in the past because they wanted you to register the BD player with YouTube or whatever. They've apparently done away with that, but the new app doesn't allow you to...

I can't find the explanation on the link. Which YouTube app is going away (why do I suspect it's the 'classic' one that I use).

Interesting. The Amazon listing doesn't say it records, and the model number doesn't include the PVR extension.

Also, should this thread be renamed the 2015 list?

Thanks. Will check it out. I'm not sure I want to go whole hog into upgrading to RF. I still think 3D was a stupid idea, but there are some things coming out that are making me reconsider.

I've said it before, but besides the often sited dual-HDMI, it is also AFIAK the last BD player to have optical/Toslink. Some people might still like to have that.
