I did say it was an approximation. But if you're going to be pedantic:

I've found zero decrease in the use of Line 21 CC. Trust me, it is heavily used in my household, we would notice.

Yes and no. Some players extract the closed captioning when it records so it can play it back as subtitle track later (note the distinction between CC and subtitles).

Is it re-encoding the video or is it just the raw (m2)ts broadcast being repackaged as mpg? If the latter, the captions should still be present to re-extract by other means.

First, I wanted to mention that I tested a BD remux of a bonus feature tonight. As soon as the bitrates cracked 30mbps for more than a fraction of a second, it stuttered. I think the PS3 profile is...

That section is also talking about disc-ed media. If it can play that high a bit rate, give it a try.

Oppo's site make it sound like it accepts just about any format you can throw at it. Considering their support (unlike Sony), I would expect you should have very few problems.

If you using an encoder like MeGUI, using a PS3 profile will probably work out just fine.

Although to be fair, except BD remuxes, I've found little that the BDPS790 couldn't play.

I've never owned an Oppo, but not because I haven't wanted one. I'm sure others here can give you better details on that. I would say, definitely better than Sony though.

I mostly bought the Sony for some of the extra output connections and that Panasonic's remote was garbage.

I've never left that method and don't care. I'm too OCD to trust any device to get recordings right the way networks have loose start and stop times.

The budget is a bit flexible. The x3000 was something I couldn't not jump at, because that is a $600 unit I got for $400. In fact Best Buy seems to be out of them now.
