HD compression, tuner resolution, Sony AVCHD incompatibility, Substandard quality of HD

Absolutely unforgiveable how can such a great piece of hardware be missing a SIMPLE software to playback media from the network. No DLNA client no SMB/CIFS windows sharing client.

I purchased the DMR-BW880 after a great deal of searching around as it offered me the best range of playback options _plus_ dual tuners and Blu-ray.

Easy to use, twin tuners, SD card reading

No wireless networking

Great picture, All in one unit
