You can redownload your iTunes content and in some instances it will be no longer DRMed. It does vary from album to album. All movies and tv shows are DRMed regardless. Most music videos are non-DRMed.
Thank you, Yes that sounds like more of what i'm looking for as an upgrade, as most of what i'd be upgrading is streaming, and disc playback is pretty standard, the other reason i hate to upgrade the player unless i have to, is I have a few commercial dvds of tv shows, and they are the double sided type discs. Well they seem to show the defects in the form of skipping, depending on the player used. the 590s i have can play the discs without flaw, the 570 has hit spots it didn't like, the panasonic dip 85 hit spots to a lesser degree, and the magnavox profile 1.1. player played the discs flawlessly, as well as the panasonic dip-b60. So it's hit or miss. So maybe an appleTV as my streaming upgrade to have apple direct support is the way to go. I don't pay for Cable TV, so between vudu, netlfix, and amazon i use that as my gap since i have more control over my content.. Now I will ask, You did mention a speed increase, i'm comfortable with my load times now, what i would be interested in knowing is, are blu-ray players still plagued with discs that won't play that need firmware updates? or should this be pretty universal now, in this point in time ?
Thanks again for the feedback.
By the way how do people find portable blu-ray players, if i do buy a new player i might get one of those to have the discs on the go. I liked the portable DVD players when i had a couple. Just wondered, if portable blu-ray was reliable
