Basic DVD/Blu-ray player?

Looking for a basic DVD + Blu-Ray player with HDMI. Doesn't need any kind of network streaming (TV and other devices handle that already). Ideally under $100. Am okay with buying used off craigslist or something if the model is known to be pretty reliable. Suggestions?

Connecting LG DVD Player to Mac

I've got LG BD 390 Blu-Ray networked DVD player. Wondering if there's a way to stream/share movies (in various formats) from my Mac wirelessly to the DVD player. Not sure if this requires special software, etc.

Do they actually *make* Blu-ray carousels?

My beloved CD/DVD player (a five-disc carousel model) conked out last night after eight years of faithful service. I'd like to get one with much the same functionality to replace it, but apparently things have changed drastically in the home video market since 2003. Who knew? Help me figure out what kind of machine I need to buy. [more inside]

Two devices, two remotes, one brand

I have a Phillips DVD recorder (DVR75) and recently bought a Phillips DVD player (DVP630) which sits underneath the recorder. However,when I try to turn on the new player using the remote for it, it's turning on the recorder instead. Is there a simple way to fix this?

My DVD player (Sony DVP-NS325) hangs. The discs work okay on my computer. It's 2+ years old and is currently the source of a great amount of agita in my life. My television is ancient, so I'm running the DVD player through a box that is supposed to allow me to connect multiple components (DVD, VCR, games) to a single television, although I don't have all the other components, so only the DVD player is running through it. Is it time for a new player? Will cleaning the discs help? How does one clean (um, and not DAMAGE) DVDs?

Do DVDs come in bad batches?

DVD Troubles: For Christmas I received a DVD box set of an 80's tv miniseries that I loved as a young teenager. The second and third two-sided DVDs showed as "bad" in my DVD player. With much sadness, I packed it up and returned the item to Amazon, requesting an exchange.

Today I received the replacement set. I eagerly popped the second DVD into the DVD player so I could finish my miniseries marathon. But it is yet again showing as "bad." I tried this DVD in two players (one cheap, one midlevel), both with the same result. There are no hairs, scratches, fingerprints, or dust. So what is going on, and what should I do?

Crud-tolerant DVD players?

Crud-tolerant DVD players. My new-ish Sony commonly locks or hiccups on Netflix discs, but I've read that other people go years without problems, and googling reveals that Sony players may be particularly prone to this. What models or brands of DVD players (not PC drives) are good at handling worn/scratched/dirty discs?
