Although I've hardly beat the cyber bush as hard as possible, from what little I've seen these players are already beyond discontinued but now into that category of not being available through some of the main online outlets, conspicuously Amazon. Please check some of your fave e-tailer and report back.

My concern is that, for those of us who need analog m.c. outputs and who are not ready to just bite the bullet and upgrade their receiver yet, if the current trend away from analog connectivity continues then 3D BD player options are dwindling. The second gen Panasonics don't have analog m.c. and, imminent CES announcements to the contrary notwithstanding, I doubt they will restore something they just moved away from; the 2010 Sonys don't do m.c. analog out; I personally am not interested in purchasing the Oppo BDP-93; and I personally am not interested in a Samsung. So that Denon DBP-2011 can't drop fast enough.

I don't need the analog outs, just 2 hdmis so that I don't have to upgrade my receiver that handles the HD audio but not the hdmi1.4

Good for you. But unfortunately that doesn't change the availability status of the 300 and 350.

And since dual HDMI is the other main thing Panasonic dropped in the 10x series to lower costs, you're still going to need to be looking at the 300 or 350 IF you want a Panasonic (dual HDMI) player.

So again, I'd start/continue checking everywhere online and let us know what you find. It will of course be interesting to see what Panasonic announces at CES in a couple weeks. Maybe they'll tier the lineup based upon connectivity options instead of the presence of DLNA, wireless and other streaming yaya: Have an entry level BDT110, a BDT115 that adds wifi and dual HDMI, and a BDT400 that has everything the lower tier decks have plus 1G onboard storage and analog 7.1 outputs. And brings back the BD10's DVD-A support.

You can always try an HDMI splitter from Monoprice. They have ones that support 1.4 now, and while it's not guaranteed to work, it's a possible solution

If you are going to a 1.4 hdmi television then I doubt a splitter will work for getting HD audio since from what I have read the splitters choose the lowest comment denominator to report back to the 3D source which will mean the 1.3 receiver input will be reported back.

Hey guys, I've got the BDT-300 and was wondering if it's region free? Because over here in NZ, we've got barely any 3D movies out at the moment, so was considering importing some from the US, but unsure whether they will work or not? Also have a PS3 if that will take any region discs?

Default Do the two HDMI outputs put out full a/v

I have a 3d tv and a 1.3hdmi receiver and want to know if I have one hdmi to the 3d tv and the other to the hdmi of the receiver so that I get the hi-def sound and the video to the projector. Are both hdmi outputs equal for a/v and put it out at the same time?I want to maintain the one hdmi to my receiver for audio and video yet have the other output from the player designated for the 3d video. Also interconnecting the hdmi to the 3d tv will it also output sound if i only want the tv on and not the receiver.

Default BDT300 open box for $150 worthwhile

Local store has an open box BDT300 for $150 (just the unit nothing else, no power cable, no remote, etc). Is it worth the price? (I've got a Sony S470 and a Panasonic BDT100 already)

Remote is about $20, power cable less than $5, wireless lan adapter about $65.

If you have the 100 and you don't need the extra HDMI port or the analog audio outputs then save your money since the picture quality would be the same.

Although I have not tried it the two HDMI outputs was designed for using the secondary one with a 1.3 receiver. See below for a link to the owners manual:

Default Now I know

I just got the 300 today, tried it out. I really gave it a work out via my complicated set up. What I want, it will not do. You can not get both at the same time to work. HDMI #1 will give 3d and hd audio. #2 will give 3d but it will only give hd audio with no video. #2 will give 1080 video with only 2ch stereo. if using #2 for 3d you get know sound to recvr. bottom line. I need a 3d capable switcher. Now my denon has 2 hdmi out which I used. the 3d was present when passed via rcvr but was only 50% 3d. I have a 75 in laservue(3d) and a projector screen that drops down infront. I need a designated line for 3d to the laservue, then one to the recver to switch for the sound and video to projector. Know any cheap 3d(1.4 splitters) What would 3d look like if it passed via a 1.3a hdmi cable????? 50% loss, I am sur it is my rcvr. Thanks

^ Not sure what you would get. A hDMI 1.3a cable should carry 3d and lossless audio with no problems
