Yeah, I think this may be a good win.
I doubt it does BD menus, and probably doesn't add many features the Hub doesn't already have, and I would bet they'll track the same firmware.
So in reality, this new box will be pretty much a Hub without disk, and add WiFi.
I don't know if the hub does 1080p from NetFlix, because NetFlix doesn't specify what the resolution is. It just says "HD." and it did that back when they were only doing 720p. ... and my TV only reports the resolution that the HUB is set to, not what the media is encoded at.
But yes, the Hub definitely does DD+. I've seen my AVR report that on a number of occasions.
