Default Re: Blu-ray player sales are falling!

The other issue is that unlike HD-DVD (RIP), Blu-ray has not included any way to play current software in standard DVD players. A lot of us Xphiles forget that when we want to buy movies, we might want to watch them in the car, on our laptop, or other portable players. It was nice when HD-DVD included the original DVD format on one side for that reason.

Oppo will release a high quality Blu Ray player in 2009 and take the market by storm.

Default Blu-ray to Apple TV

Separately, neither Apple TV nor Blu-ray players have excited consumers. People have been wary of the fight between Blu-ray and rival HD DVD players, worrying that they will end up owning the disk equivalent of a useless Betamax player. And Apple TV just didnít seem to have all that many useful things you could do with it.

Blu-ray to Apple TV
I'm not sure why you are picking on ATV? The marketing dollars spend in the last week by Blu-ray proponents easily trumps the marketing budget spent on ATV since inception. If the consumers new how easy it is to use ATV and how upgrade are done so easily more excitement about it would exist.
The reason Blu-ray is barely afloat right now is quite simple..... People don't have the cash to layout $29.99 for a movie.
The turn around time from dvd release to hbo/cinemax release has shortened to 90 - 120 days.
Another problem facing the Blu is that upscaling looks pretty good through a $40-70 DVD player and only the Videophiles really care.
I have seen a $99.00 Blu-ray player @ Walmart on and end cap for 2 months! If you roll back the clock 2 years and had that situation riots to get hands on the box would breakout immediately....Not today.
To the Victor goes the spoils ..... Not today.

It's still hard to beat the PS3 as a Blu-Ray player, great audio & video + firmware updates means it's future proof.

The main drawback is lack of IR remote, you either use the game controller (not great), buy the $35 add on Bluetooth remote (much better) or if you have a Harmony remote get the $50 Bluetooth adapter.
