First of all The meal plan provided by Nutrisystem or Nutri System...? Hoping for any comment. Another quick question... Hi guys -.

Have a techno questions and thought I might throw it out here. I figured I could find someone here who would know and I don't know anybody who knows about this stuff..

I am shopping for a Blue Ray player in the $200 - $300 range. Thinking of Panasonic as I have always has wonderful TV's from them. Are they a good player. Also, my biggest questions is what is Upconversion. I saw this in the discription of some on the Best Buy site. Can anyone tell me what this means?..

Good question... I dunno what is the answer to that question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I bump into an anything. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably can answer it..

Couple of questions:.

1. Do you own an HDTV? If not buying a Blu Ray player is a waste of money since progressive scan doesn't work on non HDTVs (analog)..

2. Are you willing to rebuy all your DVD titles over again? If not a good progressive scan DVD player is fine with an HDTV...

Comment #2

Upconverted video looks bettern than progressive scan, though, when dealing with non hi def (Blu Ray) discs..

However, I would only rebuy movies in Blu Ray that you already have in normal DVD on a case by case basis. You can generally find reviews of Blu Ray rereleases that give you an idea of whether or not rebuying is really worth it...

Thanks for the info. I understand that and I had thought of going to a BB to ask but feel I need to know enough to know if they are actually know what they are talking about. I have found that sometimes they don't.

Thanks again...

I am also going to be buying a new flat screen TV in HD. My old TV is being move to another room and is a TV/DVD combo. So old DVD can be watched on it also...

Comment #5

I have heard that regular DVD's look better. Thanks for the suggestion about looking for the reviews although I probably won't replace what I have as I do have a working DVD play in the house. Just start buying the new ones in Blue Ray..

Thanks for all the info guys. You have been a big help...

Do not, repeat.

DO NOT.

Rely on Best Buy salespeople to give you accurate information. Research online, find the best price and then buy where you want..

Oh, and women know about this stuff too! (I work in television) Sorry to butt in guys...

I'll suggest a Playstation 3..

You can rent or buy high definition movies and tv shows from the playstation store..

Not to mention you can play games too...

Comment #8

I thought about a PS3 for a Bluray player but the price is steep. I ended up with a Panasonic Blu-Ray player. It's working just fine. I previously had a Phillips DVD recorder but the menus and controls on that thing were harder than Chinese algebra. No more Phillips for me..

If you have Netflix, be sure to select the Blue-ray option so that they will ship available titles in Blu-ray. You can still change individual titles back to DVD for your DVD player. They now charge $5/mo for this option...

Comment #9

I second the PS3..

And...I recommend Blockbuster over Netflix. Netflix charges a $1 fee per movie per month (2 movie a month plan is 2 more bucks, 3 movie plan a month is 3 more bucks, and so on). Blockbuster no fee...

Comment #10

I use Netflix, 4 at a time plan. I get a new set twice a week. 4 weeks = 32 movies a month. $25.61 a month.80 cents per movie. I think that's a deal...

Comment #11

Hmmmm! More food for thought. I usually go to my local Hollywood Video. I will also have to check them out and see what they have in stock for blue ray. If anything. I might have to switch to Blockbuster or Netflix...

Comment #12

Also, make sure that you understand the difference between plasma vs LCD displays...

Comment #13

Thanks. That stuff I do know. Just couldn't figure out or find out what up conversion was. Damon gave me a great explanation. So I know have it narrowed down to a couple of models in the price range I am looking at. Just need to do a little more research on which ones seem the best..

Again....thanks for the info...

While admittedly more than you were planning to spend, this is what we bought. Everything you could possibly want in a Blu-ray player. This thing ROCKS! And our older DVDs (which we don't plan on repurchasing) look fabulous on our 46" LCD 1080p TV..

Comment #15

The PS3 used to be the go to player for Blu Ray. However, you can now get a Blu Ray player that can handle all the features of Blu Ray for less than what a PS3 costs. Unless you're a gamer, I don't recommend the PS3..

I will say, though, that if you're into Netfix, then Netflix OnDemand + Xbox = WIN...

Comment #16

Thanks for the info. Yes it is more than I want to spend. Especially on technology that is changing so rapidly. Who knows? In a couple of years there may be one that also cooks you dinner for a true dinner and a movie experience...

Comment #17

No. Not a gamer so a regular blue ray for me. I was looking at a panasonic but am now interested in a LG that has gotten very good user reviews and it has Netflix direct download capability...
