Summary: The idea is great, poorly implemented. The DVD older version supported a plugged keyboard, the least I expected from this new version was a wired, even a wireless keyboard. Gracenote database is almost useless, half of my BDs and DVDs are not found, and without a keyboard, entering data is PAINFUL, beyond that, there is no way to upload data and images to Gracenote from my Mac (or PC I assume).
Summary: How this unit be almost $2000 and not be able to play a simple mp3 encoded file? Sony is going backwards in their product development. I currently own two 400 disc CD mega changers from Sony and one of them will play mp3 files. With so many people downloading heir music and compiling their own play lists in this format it is a no brainer any player have the capability to play them.
Summary: I'm a Sony fanboi, but this is the weakest Sony product in over a decade and there's no reason for it. For the want of a horse a kingdom is lost... Sorry. It plays disks wonderfully but there's no reason to have a changer so limited. Gracenote supplies disk information but it's just not sufficient unless you are only watching mainstream movies. If you watch indies or special-interest movies, you have to enter the information by the remote, which is data-entry hell.
