A New Blu Fer You

Panasonic added the DMP-BD50 to their line of Blu-ray players. The DMP-BD30 is profile 1.1 and can decode and output lossless Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™ (the last is new if it truly is Master Audio and not just the DTS core), but you'll have to wait until I get to their booth to find out if it can pass either of those as bitstreams for decoding in a newer receiver.

With its Ethernet jack, the 50 supports BD-Live. Naturally, it outputs 1080p//24 (who says the format war wasn't a good thing!), And while it does have a slot for an SD card, that's not necessarily enough for a ticket to BD profile 2.0.
