HomeTheaterHiFi.com recently announced that they will no longer be using their Sony 570 players for review of televisions because the Sony players have an issue with screwing with the image along the way and no way to stop the Sony from doing so.
This issue, IMO, makes me wary of getting a Sony BD player now.
They say this issue is NOT present in the Panasonic DMP-BDT210, which is one that I've also considered (over my PS3).
Not sure if this particular Sony has this issue, but it seems like no Sony should be introducing any blemishes to the native digital stream.

I would say this suprises me, but Sony has been on my 'short' list for quality products for a while. Panasonic has long been a favorite of mine and I think for good reason. Cheaper, and better image.
Still, would love an Oppo.
