Blu-ray Player or Blu-ray Drive?
« on: October 27, 2013, 01:43:44 am »
I currently have an Oppo bdp-83 with rs232 controls and it now has some issues.  It does not play a lot of the newer discs and there are some playback issues with the ones that do work and the firmware upgrades do not resolve these issues.  So it leads me to ask the question if I should get a new Blu-ray player to replace this one (and if so, what model works best with LMCE) or just add a blu-ray drive to my media director? 

From previous experience I know that blu-ray drives do not work well with Linux (or has this issue been resolved?) but it would provide a more transparent experience when using LMCE. 

Thoughts or suggestions?

Get Your Oppo fixed! Internal BR playback isn't here with LinuxMCE. If some wants it, go and look at makemkv as a streaming server.
