One of the earliest Panasonic BDPs also played DVD-A but it's too obsolete. Around or below the $200 mark there are Pioneer Elite BDP-52FD, 53-FD and 62FD (soon to be replaced with new model).

It's premature to conclude the remote is the 'wrong' one esp. if as you say it looks like the same (there's a diagram in the manual).

You haven't exhausted all avenues of troubleshooting. The observations so far don't add up.

It's strange that the Roku 3 outputs 720p or 1080p and the Mits only accepts 480i/p and 1080i (I've...

Nearly all Blu-rays (except a handful of titles) have 48kHz audio tracks, what's 'high def' about it? You wouldn't normally call a DVD-A with 48kHz tracks 'high rez'.
