All of my copies are legit copies, so, no problem there.

Wouldn't they have to set a date to start encoding the audio track with this copy protection? What about older stuff? We have copies of a number of Disney flicks that we made backups of because the originals were getting scratched pretty badly. But they are at least 3 years old.

I pretty much have 100% legit everything because I like 100% full audio/video capability from a disc. I don't touch much in DVD anymore, and even if I wanted to make a copy of someone else's blu-ray, it would cost me 50%-75% of the cost of the original blu-ray anyway just in the blank dual layer media.

Right now, we only stream stupid stuff like YouTube on our other blu-ray player (Sony). Our Dish programming has Blockbuster Movie Pass, and since that is separate.

So maybe Cinavia isn't a big deal for me, but it is good to know.

Ugh. This stupid blu-ray player thing is annoying.

Every time I ask advice about one of the lower cost players, people tell me to buy something more expensive. Of course, OneCall.com doesn't sell what they recommend. And a ton of people (again, elsewhere) are telling me just to jump to the Oppo 93 since I have a nice projector and will have a 133" screen.

Grrrrr..... I wish I could just sell this $50 card and have the cash to spend elsewhere.

LOL. To sell it here, I would need to put it on the auction site and get Axiom bucks for it. smirk

Nick, I wasn't telling you to buy something more expensive, but my previous comment was based on viewing the discs themselves. The lowest price LG doesn't do any streaming, so if you want that feature you'd have to make a different pick.

Let me rephrase...

I should have emphasized it a little different...

Every time I ask advice on another forum about one of the lower cost players, people on that forum tell me to buy something more expensive. Of course, OneCall.com doesn't sell what they recommend. And a ton of people (again, elsewhere) are telling me just to jump to the Oppo 93 since I have a nice projector and will have a 133" screen.

Sorry for making you think that I was going after you John... I wasn't.

I guess it depends on how much you want to spend on the player. If you are not really trying to stay close to your $50 and want ALL the features then I see no reason to get anything else but the Oppo as it offers pretty much everything you could ever want.

If you want to stay close to that $50 limit I would get that Panasonic DMP BD75 for $20 more than the LG, but that is just me; I still don't trust LG electronics as I and my sister have had some bad luck with their DVD players.

I don't need to stay near $50, it just helps to have the $50 to help drop the cost a little.
