Blue Ray player

Why can't I find an RV Blue Ray player? All of the I see are regular DVD and the connections to the TV are composite not HDMI? What am I missing?

Also I understand the reason why RV players are special due to the ABC zone thing but there has to be a different way of acheiving that since there are GREAT DVD/BR/Radios on the market for far cheaper then the RV ones.

I think it would be cost prohibitive to throw bluray drives in the rv electronics when only a segment of the market would appreciate it.

I would love it if it was bluray but I sometimes take my old PS3 if we are going to rent movies. My radio/tv connections are all hdmi so I do think the connectivity is starting to move up to the year 2010, lol.

Ditto on the PS3. Although I have 3 TVs in my fiver. I plan on just getting a small blu-ray player for $50 at Wal-Mart to set on a shelf in my bedroom next to the TV.

I just don't get the RV players. I mean everything is fine except the Blue-Ray thing. I would install a nice double din car stereo if it had control over the A,B,C speakers and it would fit depth wise (which it might).

Blue-Ray is easy for these guys?????

Bluray stereo

I've had a couple home bluray units go bad on me, and they just sit on a shelf. The track pitch on HD DVD's is so tiny that vibration is a huge issue. Any hard mounted unit probably wouldn't last long. That's not to say that a shock mounting system couldn't be invented, but that adds cost and who will do the engineering and shock & vibration testing. And most of all, who will take responsibility for warranty replacements for the inevitable returns. I plan to get a small Blu Ray player soon, but during traveling I will wrap it in a few towels to keep it isolated.
