Great machine, updated specs needed
 
With the latest firmware and driver from LG (released in April, a beta version was temporarily posted in March) every one of my major complaints have been fixed. The BH200 now supports internal decoding of multichannel Dolby Digital, DTS, DD+, and Dolby TrueHD and will decode the core (1.5 mbps) audio in a DTS-HD/MA track. It now bitstreams all the new HD and/or lossless audio codecs including DD+, TrueHD, DTS-HD, and DTS-HD Master Audio via HDMI to a compatible receiver in up to 7.1 channels. 1...

Flexible unit, not as up-to-date as I expected
 
In reading the manual (LG's website doesn't help much with this player, thankfully, Crutchfield's does), it appears the unit is running Blu-Ray Revision 1.0, when the technology's up to version 2, and has had an intermediate 1.1 release. They seem to indicate a firmware update can solve this, but there are different hardware requirements between the two (PIP, etc), so I'm not so sure. I also read that the unit limits its output audio-wise to 5.1, which is not as far as HDMI can...

Terrific piece of equipment! This sure helps cut down on the number of devices under the TV. Crutchfield kept us informed of the expected delivery date and were easy to work with. I highly recommend both Crutchfield and the Super Blu!

All for One, One for All
 
This player is my second HD DVD player and my second Blu-ray player...all in one unit. (Along with countless DVD players I've owned since 1998). This player has played everything I've thrown at it. LG has issued a firmware upgrade (April 2008) that will allow you to play back all 'HD' audio formats...and bitstream them, too. I have this hooked up to my Onkyo TX-SR605 via 'primary pass through' and I haven't had a problem with any of my 30+ HD DVD and Blu-ray discs. All of...

A for effort?
 
I give LG alot of credit for breaking into the format war and making a dual player. Good idea, bad timing. After a few weeks of exposure for the "LG Super Blu-Ray HD-DVD combo player" several companies have switched exclusively to Blu-Ray. Subsequently making the LG BH200 a gigantic waste of money. Half of the player can now be stripped and used as a paper weight. Now get to work on that new Blu-Ray only player, LG. I have high hopes that you can make one that wont freeze up constantly, or ...

Great All Around Player
 
For those of us who went down the HD DVD path the first time around, this player is a great compromise between doubling the amount of equipment or losing use of HD DVD collections. The slow startup of this more powerful unit is only an issue if you're really impatient, which isn't an issue for me. Grab one while you can still find them and you won't be disappointed.
