    I was interested in getting a panasonic DMP-BDT310 but finding out it has no ntfs support meaning mkv files over 4gb cannot be player and the fact there is no iplayer Im not going to buy one.

    Is there a decent player on the market that will do ntfs for mkvs over 4gb and iplayer.

    Also can blu rays like the panasonic i mentioned be hacked to do iplayer and ntfs....:thumbsup:

    Reading the specs I can't see anything that any Samsung/LG or Panasonic can't already do already in 2011 except maybe some of the Audio features. There still appears to be no divx support by the looks of it, and Cinavia will still be incorporated into Sony players firmware no doubt.

    So there is no drawback in using exfat file system. This is readable by both mac and windows, yes..?

    We picked the Sony 390 up yesterday and it does not have Cinavia protection installed.

    That is excellent it can do ExFat. Something I don't like about my Oppo, it does NTFS just fine but no ExFAT so had to install extension on my Mac...
