I think the usual warning with the cheap blu ray players is they may not support BD profile 2 or something?!

You're probably right aot the BDLive / 2.0 thing but it has to make a great "2nd" player or a truly cheap but good pressie. Add 2 of the many BOGOF Blu-Rays for about £13 and you've got a greeat Xmas present right there.

what difference does the bdlive make? sorry not into tech stuff haha but wanting a blu ray xx

Piccolo! :-D

I'll be interested to see how many people actually get one of these.
#8
What make?

BD 2.0 is for special features over the internet. Not necessary, but nice to have and it means, potentially, more features can be added to the machine in the future. Althoguh that's not profile 2.0's purpose.
#9
it will be a local reduction not national
#10
It'll be because customers have wised up to the perils of buying non-global brand players for a specification that isn't fixed enough (ie you need regular/quality firmware updates to be able to play Blu-ray discs reliably) and hence too many left on their hands. If you're investing all that money in Blu-ray discs to get the quality then you should invest a bit of money in a decent player!

Cheap Blu ray player that is easily made into Multi region by the press of some buttons.

Not the fastest at loading or high on build quality but what do you wan for £60.

Bargain.

But this is also a multiregion upscaler
#18
people dont realise that unlocking the region in these is just for watching dvds, not multi region blu rays
#19
Just read the review linked a few posts ago and it seems like a top deal.

There are 2 codes, both set multiregion dvd and one code for each bluray region to go back and forth with.

Maybe.

You cannot go wrong with this for £60.
I have BDplayer already but if you're thinking about getting one go for it.
Review only confirms it's great deal and if it has standard Tevion warranty you are safe for 3 years.

@diGriz
ur saying you can change BD region between UK/USA? how many time can you do that?
If that's the case I'm driving to my Aldi stright away!
Where can one find these codes?

why is blue-ray a con?

blue ray is a class piece of technology. Granted, it has been a little too expensive for my liking until recently with prices dropping but, this was always going to happen once blue ray started getting into mainstream market.

they can hold a great amount of data of 25gb's or more and can be great for backup measures aswell as hi-def films, games, etc. Wont be long before all blue ray hardware will be dvd prices i bet.

I studied in Canterbury and lived there a few years. I think you've got the better end of the deal.

I found those codes online a few weeks back when this machine was 75 quid, for the life of me I can't find them now. But then I am off work with the lurgee and my brain isn't firing on all cylinders. I'll look a bit longer but more likely to go lay down a bit first. :o

Ignore him mate, he's clearly a troll.

Just to bring this into perspective, DVD was expensive for a long time. I remember buying our 1st imported player in 1998 and that was around £600. That wasn't a top end player by any means either.

BD prices have fallen far quicker than DVD prices did. To be able to buy a decent player for £120 now, is quite something. To be able to buy a budget player for £60 is great for the consumer and what the BD market needs to increase penetration and in turn, reduce costs.

I personally don't think that £20 is expensive for a BD movie, especially when the majority of US releases can be had months before the UK get them and in some cases, weeks before the official US release too. I got Transformers 2 and G I Joe a week before their official US release for example.
The picture and sound quality is untouchable and that's what I I value and why I've not bought a DVD movie, if there were a Blu-ray version, in the 2 years that I've had my player.
If you take a look at DVD RRP's, they're not that much lower than Blu-ray prices either. Even places like HMV sell Blu-ray movies for under £10 now, surely that's cheap enough for what you're getting?!

Anyway, back on topic. Good find. :thumbsup:

I have one of these and can confirm the multi region blu ray hack via remote control code, works great... you do have to do it every time you boot up as it defaults back to UK but otherwise theres no limit on the number of times you do it. It's a bit slower reading the discs than my PS3 but its a very cheap alternative if you dont want to spend £300+ just for multiregion, which is what I got it for.

Er... have you not read the terms and conditions of posting on the internet? This post is too sensible and positive. If you can't think of anything bad to say please refrain from posting.

From the pic, this is the same as the cheap Comet ones from a few months back, I was lucky enough to get one and it's been pretty good.
#38
Oooh this is tempting even though I have a PS3 the multi region thing may well sway me
#39
From the review: "Yes indeed, the Tevion does indeed support BD-Live - but only if a 1GB+ memory device is plugged into the USB port on the front panel. What a clever way of avoiding the expense of building memory into the player itself (Profile 2.0 spec - 1GB requirement)! Nowhere is this in the manual."

Not having a bluray player myself I don't know if this is of any help/sense to anyone. lol

I´d like to get one if a kind soul would buy one on my behalf.

Just send me a PM, and we´ll work something out.

Thanks, in advance.
