I can't get the table rows to line-up correctly but my current DMP-BDT 300 is giving me loading issues probably because I watch a movie a day and it's been almost two years. I'm looking at the possibility of getting a 2012 model. I'm interested in the items that are highlighted in RED if anyone has good information on them.

Ordered my 220 last night around midnight from Amazon. Came home for lunch with an e-mail saying it has been shipped and should arrive Thursday, 02/23/12. THAT'S TOMORROW!!!


I must say my excitement level just ain't quite what it was when I received my Oppo BDP 95 back in December. I do plan to a-b test this against said Oppo out of curiosity....... especially the DVD upscaling.

Awesome. For me its all about its streaming abilities and the hope that they have squared away the issues that plagued last years players.


Apparently we can also look forward to 1080p/24 for VOD too, although depending on how that works could come back to bite them and be a bag of hurt.


For Bluray and DVD I'll be very interested in your opinion on how it compares to the oppo. I'm trying to find a single one player does it all ... but haven't ruled out Oppo for BD/DVD and "something" else to handle the majority of my streaming needs (Netflix 1080p, Amazon VOD (with 5.1), Vudu (with "crisp" UI), and Hulu Plus (that doesn't crash and lock up).

When I checked the 320 it was not available from them, only sellers. 220 is available.

Twin HDMI allows you to dedicate one of the outputs to audio (since other audio connections schemes besides HDMI are limited in what they can transport).


Analog output means that you can connect the player to a receiver using 8 separate RCA cables (1 per audio channel).


Eco Sensor means that the unit can go into sleep mode if it doesn't sense anyone walking around in its vicinity.


Slot-in drive means that there is no disc tray. You feed the disk directly into the slot (a-la car CD player).

Those of you awaiting the arrival of the 220... it would be thoroughly appreciated if you could report your findings on the following items (if possible):
  • 1080p streaming in netflix
  • DD+ in netflix
  • How well does it handle .mpg's and .mkv's
  • Does the fancy new audio processor play SACDs?


Thanks!

Damn. I was just about to start a thread in which I would have reserved the first few posts for a FAQ and a "Tricks, Hints and Methods" post which people could read before posting the same question for the 5000th time. Oh, well. I receive my BDT220 from Amazon tomorrow.


This thread should also include discussion of the BBT01, the second most expensive of the 2012 crop of Panasonic 3D BD players (slot in, small form factor, touch pad remote).

Yes, that would have saved thousands of posts (litetally) in last year's thread. Maybe the OP can be updated to contain a link to a FAQ post later in the thread.

I personally don't stream so my comparison will be strictly limited to siver discs. I do follow all the Oppo threads and from what I can ascertain, it's one of the better players for streaming. There sure seem to be far fewer complaints regarding capabilities than what I've seen on the 110/210/310 thread. Hopefully for you streamers out there, this new crop of pannys will have addressed all those problems that have been discussed ad-nauseum.

Thanks!

We already know the answer to two. DD+ in NF has been supported since the X10 series. Panasonic has never supported SACD in their BD players. The key question is 1080p streaming in NF. I don't honestly know if I would look for any more support for any more streaming file formats than they currently offer.
