I agree, call Sony they will send you CDs to do the upgrades now for receivers that is an other story?

My 3808ci is the only thing that requires an internet connection to get upgrades, the PS3 can be burned to a CD or flash drive, the DirecTV comes through the satellite.
Isn't updated software being included on Blu-ray movies now?

My dealer tells me only 5% of his customers do firmware updates, a large portion of "repairs" they get only require a firmware update.

The thing is if only 5% of the public can do updates how many of them are going to be able to figure out how to download a movie?

Not even close!
1 plug is needed in the computer to download the music, video, whatever to my iPod but, you need to have your home Theater networked to stream your downloaded movies to your TV.

I also think the average consumer may not be as tech davvy on the computer. Streaming, downloading, burning, copying, SlingBox, LogicTech, Benchmark, i really feel people are still absorbing that Blu-Ray is the winner.

And are now taking a deep breath and going back to enjoying their systems. The format war took a lot out of them.

I can't wait to see if Amazon is going to have a sale as well? Amazon has Iron Man (Ultimate Two-Disc Edition + BD Live) for $19.99 now on sale
