What I am not sure about-My computer is no where near my computer-can you connect a 2.0 player to a wireless router for firmware upgrades? My TV manual says it has HDMI hookup-is this the best way to go? It looks like the Panasonic DMP-BD55 and Sony BDP-S350 get good marks. Is it worth is to go up in price to a Denon or Pioneer? Have I overlooked an issue that would affect my system?
- HDMi 1.3 is the best way to go as everything stays digital Audio and Video

- If you can wait get the new Oppo BDP-83H Blu Ray player and it should be the best if history repeats itself.
forget Denon or Pioneer they are not that great unless you are willing to spend $3800 to get the latest multi player from Denon! But I will be that the Oppo will match it for $499-$599
