Kids, this is why you need to go to school. Unless you want to be a dummy all your life! :scratch:

Can you elaborate on that comment?

I think he means for us Luddites that do not know an IC from a Tube or do not have a doctorate in IT this new technology and the language associated with it can be overwhelming? :duh:

It's a spoof on Howie Meeker a Canadian hockey analyst from 1970 -'80, affectionately known as Howie Squeaker, who gave in-depth hockey analysis during intermission to the watching TV audience.

The BDP-1 innards are beyond Howie Meeker to analyze(and myself), so this is the kind a thing he would say to his TV audience.

Ah, thanks. It did sound a bit familiar.

I was admiring this circuit board and a partial quote suddenly came to mind from the Star Trek episode Court Martial, “ not in that homogenized, pasteurized, synthesized…” Somehow it seemed most fitting, perhaps in our pursuit of perfection, the message is somehow lost or diluted in the machine.

Ghosts anyone?

Be well...

You also need to go to school to learn effective communication... as illustrated by the lack of clarity in your own post.
Putting that aside, this type of product is much more than the sum of its parts. This is a lesson that I have just re-learnt with a recent upgrade to my primary PC… it should have been a simple case of replacing the MB, Processor and Memory. With hindsight, it turns out that I had two sets of faulty memory (initial and first replacement) but it took weeks (and a lot of frustration) to get to a solution and now I am fighting with the Reseller to get the full cost refunded. I for one do not want “computer issues” to spill-over into my enjoyment of music and am prepared to pay a premium for this service.
Although I do accept part of your “implied value point" especially as far as UK prices are concerned where the RRP is £2,300 (approx $3,680) for a BDP-1.

Hi nikon

Looks like it - will check with engineering. We remove the video, bypass the on board sound circuits and we alter the CMOS settings and of course write the software for the flashcard. 

James


Hi James

Couple questions;

Do you add/remove any components to/from the board or modify traces or add jumpers

Also, is the USB drive supplied with the initial shipments of BDP-1 a Luxor unit or another brand

Sorry for being nosey  :o

Yes we remove parts from the board and modify it.

The USB is a custom unit made for us through Chesky - not sure who they used to manufacture it.

Current software already has the above feature and yes going forward we will offer online updates as we add more freatures.

I will check on the ExFat question.

james
That's great James, thanks.
Any news on the ExFat format compatibility... I ask because I will need to reformat/recopy my HDD which currently uses NTFS and I would prefer to use ExFat (Fat64) if at all possible.

Hi Russell,

No ex-fat at this point - will be coming as we move along.

Hi Steven,

Don't think it will happen any time soon - we are way - way - way behind on the orders for BDP-1's.

Putting aside the $$ issue, what is the current wait time for a BDP-1?
