Ah, well, my GT-2.0's USB is not. I had assumed the same of the 3.0. That would be more frustrating.

To be fair, the head unit market in general hasn't really caught up to Blu-Ray. The only one I've found is this one from AudioVox: AVDBR1
And it's not even a full head unit, just an add on player with HDMI out.
Most of the market now has recognized that discs are on their way out and are instead jumping right into being able to accept digital inputs.
For instance, looking at Pioneer's NEX line, 3 out of 4 of their models take HDMI inputs.
