Lack of #1 is a disappointment, especially since the 2011's have it. Does it have NHL Gamecenter on it?

Not that I can find. . .
Below are the Premium Apps included:
- Vudu HD Movies
- Hulu Plus
- Cinema Now
- Picasa Web Albums
Most of these do not matter to me and the one thing I would like (Amazon VOD) is not there.

According to the specs the 220 doesn't support xvid anymore. Can somebody see if it will play xvid by burned dvd or USB?
How about mp4 files?
How does the menu look this year on the bottom model? Last year's was sub par, IMO.

You can download the manual here which shows supported codecs and what the menu looks like.

Sorry I have never seen the Youtube app in 2011 players so I am afraid I can't answer that.

Ok fair enough.
Please describe the Youtube app on your player, I'm curious about how it compares to the useless one on the 2011 players.
Mariangie: Hello Guest. Welcome to LG Electronics U.S.A. Support only. How may I provide you with excellent service today?
Guest: Hi, based on this weblink: " http://lgknowledgebase.com/kb/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=6510 " I was expecting to see MOG, mlb.tv, NHL, amazon VOD, netflix, and hulu. When I purchased the BP620 today and configured it, I found that MOG, MLB.tv, NHL, and amazon VOD are not currently available.
Guest: Will these channels be supported soon?
Mariangie: I would like to please place you on a brief hold while I research that for you, will that be alright?
Guest: that's fine thanks
Mariangie: Yes, the list that was in that link was for 2011 models
Mariangie: they 2012 model do not have the same content
Guest: i see, that link doesn't make that clear. So are any of those channels expected for the 2012 models?
Mariangie: Unfortunately not sir
Guest: thanks for your help

- Right pane is where video is showing

-- Discover Channels
-- My Youtube
Easier thing to do might be showing me a link to a picture or video clip of how Youtube app looks like in 2011 players. I can then tell you if it looks the same or not.

It sounds like what you have is WAY better than what's on the old 600 series. Those players HAD a decent Youtube app until it was "updated" to be useless. It essentially is a fullscreen random video. You can bring up a very slow and useless search field as well.
If you go to "My Youtube" can you sign into a Youtube account?
I'll post a screenshot of the BD670 Youtube app in a few minutes.
EDIT - Attached the pic.
As you can see the Youtube interface is almost non-existant and is borderline useless.
Any chance of you posting a pic of what it looks like on your player?
