It is back-order status that brought me to AVSforum. I should have been reading here first, but I guess I haven't logged in here in a year. And 100 pages is a lot of posts. I have an order in for a BD570 with Amazon for $117 and Crutchfield for $118. Crutchfield changed their status to Discontinued which prompted me to email to see what they meant. The response wasn't clear except they did expect a delivery at an unknown date.
Anyhow, I ventured to http://www.dlna.org/products and looked for LG DVD/BD players and it lists BD590, but BD570 is MIA. Likely a search issue, but it also lists certs for BD660/670/690 with certification dates of 11/18/2010. Also a couple of HR690s dated 11/29/2010
My Search here for BD670 shows one post that is likely just a typo. Has anybody heard of BD600s replacing BD500s?
