This means that even if your receiver can decode these, you have no way to enjoy them. But the thing I really hate about the bdp-s300 is it takes forever to power on, then you have to wait again before the tray will open, and again for a disc to load. By the time you can actually watch a movie ...
For about a hundred bucks more (499 vs. 399) you can get the far superior Panny BMP-BD30:
On 5/1 the BD50 will be released which has BD live (v2.0) though this will certainly be more expensive. JMHO
