And all I am saying is that Blu-ray DOES have their act together, compared to what to they originally claimed they would accomplish with this format.

It was never introduced as a DVD movie replacement... it was introduced as a "blue laser" technology with massive storage capacity that would EVENTUALLY provide the most advanced package of benefits.

As in:

BUYER BEWARE: This is a two-year development roll-out, NOT just a new technology for watching HD movies!

Well David, I believe then if that was what was intended, mabe myself and others did not receive it as such. But even so, my main point here is, regardless of what was originally intended by SONY or anyone else, to just play a movie disc, should NOT have all the drama and inconvenience associated it with. And to suggest,t that we should come to expect that as the norm, is that what we have all this equipment for. Absolutely not. This is not bashing. Its about simplicity, and making your product with user friendliness.
I just want to watch a movie. That`s all.
