Well I don't really care for Netflix. I don't even have a PS Network account. I watch all my movies on Blu-ray/DVD cause I still think it's the best way to go. But hey call me antiquated. I have no issues with the PS3. Certainly does everything I need. But if I could get this guy to pay me the difference well I could certainly use the money. But I am curious if this Panasonic blu-ray player decodes HD audio or would I have to get a surround receiver? The PS3 seems to decode HD audio. Also does the Panasonic up convert standard DVDs very well compared to the PS3?
