Nick, I understood that were commenting about other advice; I was just reemphasizing that my advice was to go with a low-priced choice.

Ok then, what do you want this player to do for you, streaming, network capable, SACD playback? I will also add that IMHO, if you are going to get anywhere near the price of an Oppo with these other brands, you might as well buy the Oppo; that $50 savings isn't worth it, so that would leave you in the $150-$350, there are some really good choices in there. Do some checking on reviews and make a choice.

I don't need DVD-Audio or SACD at all. Just looking for a good picture and sound as a first priority. I like being able to look up some things like YouTube videos, but we don't do much more than that. We will stream the occasional video from Blockbuster Movie Pass via our Dish receiver, so that isn't a big deal. So not much streaming needs.

Need an extra memory chip for your camera? It's not sexy, but I can always manage a need for one of those!

There now that picking on Mark is done, I'll answer your question Nick.

Your old Disney movies are save. To be effected by Cinavia, the Cinavia code has to be built into the audio track. So just very new movies are effected and just from those companies who have chosen to use it. Wiki has a list of Cinavia embedded movies as well. It's not very long yet but it includes some bigger names.
