No. All old discs will play in all new players.
This is the reason why you are accusing me of being "grossly misinformed"?
Meanwhile, have you actually played every existing disc on a new player, so that you can state FACTUALLY that there will never be any playback difficulties?
Do you author these discs?
Do you clearly understand the changes in the software coding... so that you can explain to everyone WHY a new player will never mis-read the data on a Profile 1.0 disc?
I'm sure no early adoptor, well aware of the evolving BD spec, expected his/her early-generation BD player to provide a full featureset.
But just in case, maybe you should visit a few retailers... and ask them how their "early adopters" have reacted to this new development.
