    This has been bugging me more and more every day, 1.1 coming soon, ???? should be 1.1.... well where are they, who will actually have one to buy first, will it be a dual format player or will we actually get a Blu-ray standalone at 1.1 first....

    My punt is...... Hmm.... I reckon it will be the Sammy Dual format but not till Q1 2008 (mid jan) via a firmware update.... if the PS3 don't get there first (i would if i was Sony...)

    OK I will be more accurate...... and add a prize fund of £1.00 paid by BT to the nearest Guess to the correct machine on the correct date.......... no purchase or payment necessary to join in .... :thumbsup:

    I understand the Denon is delayed a bit but should be there by X-Mas, at least in the US.

    The Samsung dual format player is based on the bd2400 from what I can gather. It has also been delayed a bit but might be available before the end of the year.

    If you read the news on the front of the homecinemachoice.com webpage, it states and quotes Denon as saying “has been pushed back until December.”

    .............HCC was told that the innovative deck is unlikely to make an appearance in Europe “until at least March 2008.”

    I think people under estimate the work needed to make the PS3 1.1 compatible. I'm sure it has the power, but they still have to write all the code. Then again maybe that is why it has been delayed.

    I will say before X-mas, so mid December-ish!
    And yes, Denon 3800 BD is a blu ray player, listing in the US for pre orders for about $1900 (£950 or so) and in the UK @ AV Land for £1400!! In either case, a lot of money for a mere .1:)

    I realized late that for the competition, precise date is needed, so put me in for 17th December!

    As instructed, I am having a guess.

    More in hope than expectation, I'm going for BD-UP5000, by firmware, on Dec 18th 2007. Christmas present! That's if the player is in the hands of buyers by then.....

    OK, I actually think it will be Sony who will annouce a player next, but I am not sure if it is one that has been already announced [that they will provide more details on, i.e. firmware upgradeable] or a yet to be announced one - you sort to have to believe that even Denon must be getting their "stuff" from Sony and other key BDA members ultimately, so I think Sony will announced something before the 31st of October and it will be available by the 22nd of November ....around teatime

    As I'm not in the market for a new BD player, I'm hoping for a PS3 upgrade. I'll say the 31st of October!

    I'm probably more interested in the discs, and making sure they play okay on 1.0 machines.

    I don't know, maybe it is ready and Sony now want to start moving the push away from their 'games Machine' if PS3 went 1.1 today.... why buy a standalone except for aesthetics.....

    Anyhow jeff... i have changed the OP please can you have a quick gander and give me a guess in the Comp...... Please.....

    THANKS........ Deano

    Cheers emthree.... :smashin:

    Should be a lovely bit of kit though........ Cheers Emthree :smashin:

    I think a lot of us are hoping....... we are a strange lot....... :smashin:

    Nice guess... tell you what, seems that is so precise i will double the winnings if your date is correct... :D

    Denon certainly seem to be being bantered about, but if Sony are supplying the guts why won't sony pull it off first HHmmmm....

    What is it about the 31st October..... I see, the BDA making sure there is at least one player at 1.1 by November..... it will be a sad day if it is the PS3.. but also rather exciting..... then all we need is the titles........ :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the guess.....

    of course given that we are on firmware 1.9.x with the PS3, they might just jump to profile 2.0 directly with firmware 2.0

    I might be wrong but....

    Arn't all current/prospective players going to be tested in Japan at the end of sept? Can't remember the dates something like Sept 26th. Only once they have gone through those compatability tests can they call themselves 1.1 players.

    My guess is the PS3 will be confirmed as a profile 1.1 player on or around Friday 28th sept.

    I might be being optomistic here, but perhaps the reason why nothing is being confirmed as being 1.1 profile yet is because their not allowed to until after these tests?
