I was considering upgrading my aging Blu-ray players with something from the 2012 lineup. I am currently using two Samsung BD-2550's. They work fine but I would like something faster loading, refreshed apps (currently only have Pandora and Netflix), and support for 1080p Netflix and Dolby Digital Plus Bit Stream. I use Netflix streaming quite a bit so I would like one that provides the best Netflix audio and video support (with 5.1 speakers currently powered by an Onkyo 806 A/V receiver). Have we reached a point where all the major manufacturers (i.e. Samsung, LG, Panny, Sony, etc.) include support for 1080p Netflix and Dolby Digital Plus Bit Stream or is this something I really need to be careful about? And if the latter is there a thread somewhere on here that breaks down what manufacturers / models provide such features for streaming?
