Sounds like you want the PS3, if you want the sacd and other options, get a 20gig, 60gig or last years 80gig, all are still available if you search. One really nice thing about the PS3 as a blu-ray player is that it loads super fast.

I just reread my note - make that Bluetooth versus IR... I'm pretty sure there is no conflict between BluRay and infrared. \:\)

HomeDad - thanks for the info... good to know of another option that is actually available if I decide to take the plunge. For now, I haven't found it a huge problem to use the PS3 remote for Power On/Off/PS3 button, though at some point it may become more annoying than it is now. Have you purchased anything to convert IR to Bluetooth or are you using the standard controller?

[Have you purchased anything to convert IR to Bluetooth or are you using the standard controller?]

I've got the Nyko device that allows my Harmony to do everything but turn the PS3 on and off, but there is still a delay factor when using it for most of the functions, I've also got the Sony Bluetooth remote for turning the unit on and off when I'm not using a game controller.
I still just want my Harmony to be able to do it all, so I got on the IR2BT's mailing list to see when it will be available again, if they don't start producing them by next week I'm going to grab a PS3IR-Pro. I'll give a review of whatever unit I buy in the next couple weeks.

Cool, thanks for the info. I have the Nyko too and am getting by but will eventually get something different, so I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on either of the solutions.

Apparently best buy has an insignia bluray player that is pretty much the same as walmart's magnavox. I think the magnavox, insgnia, and sylvania players are all just the same rebranded player made by funai.

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?...d=1204332499513

I am going to buy my player from best buy since my best western reward points can purchase best buy certs in incrimates of $25 so i can get $175 worth of certs. at walmart they only offer $100 gift certs and I don't have enough points for 2 of em.

So.... step one: wait on best buy gift cards in mail... step two: decide between the insignia player or the ps3.

Well I ordered a dozen cd's or so from amazon today.. and I also threw in the Dave matthews and Tim reynolds Bluray, as well as the John Mayer Bluray. I already own the Dave Matthews and tim reynolds on dvd but want to have the TrueHD soundtrack.

Now when I have two blurays show up at my doorstep and I have no bluray player I think I will make my mind up fairly quickly on which of these players I want.
