    thank you.
    Depends when the blu ray player was made. If you go to the manufacturers web site they have firmware upgrades. Avoid anything that says cinavia. You need to find out what firmware the player is currently is using. You might want to downgrade the firmware so you don't have the cinavia protection. My blu ray player currently doesn't have the cinavia protection. If I upgrade to the newest firmware I will have that cinavia protection. Which I don't want.

    I'm about 90 percent sure this player is probably Cinavia supported out of the box given the manufacturing date. Cinavia support is going to be the typical thing with future licensed blu ray players.

    HTPC's are still the best solution with dealing with Cinavia, in my opinion.

    Which blu ray player is that, if you don't mind my asking? I have legacy blu-ray players, Samsung BD6900 and an LG BD650, that have current firmware and thankfully, no Cinavia support.

    BTW, the only problem with legacy players is that the drives themselves just flake out. Swap out the drive and good to go. The rest of the electronics is good for 20 years.

    Sometimes throwing out the old to get the new stuff every year is not always the best idea

    Just to clarify that, My experience with blu ray players and burners is that their life is extremely limited in many cases. I went through about 4 panasonic burners in less than 15 months with moderate use. And two players. The reliability of the blu ray drives themselves are still evolving, but getting better.

    BTW even though its called Blu Ray. The technology is actually a result of the development of the blue laser. Blu is short for Blue.

    BTW, I am talking about cheap stuff and not Oppo level equipment. Last I heard, Oppo's don't have that short lived blue laser problem.
    I guess that's why the Oppo costs about 5 times more than the cheap ones

    It's a Sony BDP-S185. It doesn't do 3D though? Do I need a special Blu Ray player to play 3D blu ray movies? I'm still newbie to all this and I'm learning. Google is a great help and overkill at times as well.

    3D requires a 3d player. However BD optical drives in a PC don't care. It's just a BD disc with different data

    Yes, you need a 3D compliant player to watch in 3D. You also need the monitor or 3D HDTV and glasses to view it.

    It's actually the HDTV that puts out the signal to the 3D glasses, not the BD player. People are confused about that sometimes.

    The 3D glasses come matched with the HDTV and not the blu ray player.

    BtW,, You can backup a 3D movie with AnyDVDHD as a full iso backup with protections removed.
    It will play on a 3D system just like the original. But there is no way to re-author the disk or change it any way yet. Normally it requires a full D/L 50GB blank to back one up.

    I don't know if you can use speedmenus with 3D movies, but it would be useful.

    3D signal to the glasses? Oh, perhaps you mean the optical illusion, that the glasses translate Naturally we need the 3D HDTV as well.

    I've been trying to justify the purchase of one myself. Will likely be a few more years though. Flat Blu-ray looks plenty fine to me Besides... unfortunately I'm a prescription lens wearer

    No worries, the novelty of my 3D wore off in the first few weeks and wish I had the extra 1000 dollars back I paid for it. I just hope the newer ones are better

    I've got an early Samsung TV the first year they had 3D and it has a ghosting problem sometimes. It's hard to watch it for more than about an hour. Headaches are a common complaint.

    This is a great opportunity for Apple to take up that market too considering the competition (Samsung, the mortal enemy of Steve Jobs himself). Apple is a hardware company and does that very well.
