I think all versions of bluray players can be updated as long as there is a mechanism in place to allow it to do so.

The PS3 has an ethernet port and wifi adapter that lets it connect to the internet. I would imagine that if this one has network connectivity, then it will also be able to get updates.

Could be wrong though.

you mean 1.1 to 2.0 and the panasonics wont do it. You can buy the DMPBD50 that is the 2.0 one - the BD30 is 1.1

There are 2 new blu ray "products" due out from panasonic before the end of the year - they wont say any more on the subject though - however the word product is interesting

This is a good run down of the blu ray profiles:

If memory serves, one of the complaints about blu ray as opposed to HD DVD was the fact that not all players could be upgraded, where as with HD DVD this was part of the standard.

LOL yep that's wot I ment. The bd30 & 50 are nice but the 500 is in a world of it's own no doubt they will improve on that and i'll just have to wait you know wot there all like they will have one making tea by the end of the year!!!!!
