Default Re: Will Meridian make an HD DVD player?

One issue I have is as a MAC user, I have SO much hassle to get these on line! I have to go back to PC's to open stuff, then as the only PC I have doesn't have a DVD burner in it I have to go back to my MAC and copy it to a DVD-R. It's a huge headache and one I've never had with an HD DVD PLayer. Toshiba in fact mails me the new updates when they come out.

Does ANY Blu-ray maker do that??? Pretty sure not as I've owned most of them.
Again kennyt, I agree. David, I really don`t understand why you do not see this as a problem. One thing though is obvious, it seems, that the SONY PS3 is the most reliable Blu-Ray unit on the market. Why? I don`t think we know, but maybe if you want to go the Blu-Ray route, SONY should push its own unit. Until they can do something to limit these updates.
David, hit eject, push play, thats all it should be. period.
