While sooner would definitely be better than later, we can't argue with a timeline that leads us to expect nothing less than a fully featured BD Live compatible player from a company with a reputation for delivering more bang for the buck.
Oppo upconverting DVD players have received great reviews & had great prices so hopefully their Blu-Ray player will be inexpensive & good preforming.
Since it won't be out till summer perhaps it'll be a profile 2.0.
Profile this, profile that...I've been winning people over to HTPC/w BD since the players are dropping like rocks. I'm ever so glad that I decided to go the PC route. This may be my last BD player (unless someone comes out with something different - transport/DAC seperates with tube analog 8ch output)! I was looking at a Vincent Tube CD player yesterday - trying to convince my spouse that it would make a great wedding anniversary gift for papa!
