It only does Dolby True HD in 2 channels and freezes up and must be re booted from time to time. Is there a blu-ray player in the $500 range that has a similar Reon type chip for upconversion. I have several hundred DVD's and would like to get the best picture from them as I build my Blu-ray collection.
Since current console players won't be upgradeable to 2.0, the only BR player that it makes sense to buy now is the PS3. However, I believe The Reon-VX HQV® video processor is available in the high end Denon DVD-2500BTCI Blu transport, and the lower end model Samsung BD-P1200 Blu player. See:
