With all due respect, your arguement does not hold water though. Just because something is the only circus in town, does not make it a good product.
This is not the first time that we have seen playback problems with these Blu-ray discs. It is also not the first time people had to risk flashing firmware for a “fix”.
I am just upset because HD would be great, but they have made an inferior protection scheme for it that is restrictive and violates my Fair Use Rights. It is aso interfering with customers purcheses and you can’t get your money back on crap like this once you open the darn thing.
In addition, SOME of the problems are due to how they are “trickling out” these “enhancements” Like PIP and Directors comments. WTF! I’m tired of all this crap. Just sell me one of these discs you are describing with the content on it and thats all I want. I should not have to pay for a processor and various royalties to “decrypt” what I just bought!!! I DAMN SURE should not have to risk turning an expensive BR player into a fancy doorstop by flashing the damn firmware to watch a movie that I just paid out the ass for.
Right now BR is struggling to get a customer base. Can you imagine the crap they will pull if they can phase out DVD? I don’t even want to think about it!
DVD ruled because “It just worked” And it will continue to rule for that same reason. BR is a pain in the freakin ass and you have to pay for too much DRM infested hardware to make it work, so I say SCREW IT!
This is why I say :
