So why even put a DVD player in? Blu-ray is the only format for high Def discs. I assume it's because the cheap vendors they use only support DVD? And, does every campsite have WiFi to stream movies? To me, it would be incredibly cheap to just use Blu-ray players which also support standard DVDs.

The disc hardware to play audio CD's will also play DVD's as seen in computers for decades. Since they are going to install a radio with a CD player you might as well use the DVD capability also. The Blueray hardware is a more costly hardware upgrade and even at this point not all will play music CD's.

ray89, I don't want to bust your bubble but you have this 180 out. The blu-ray players will play blu-ray, dvd and all music cd's
dvd players will play all dvd and all music disk but not blu-ray
cd players will only play music cd's and will not play dvd or blu-ray disk.

...
Guys, I agree the blu-ray does cost more, I figured seeing how I have to change out my concertone anyway ( it no longer plays the dvd or cd, doesn't even turn on half the time... ) I want to get the latest technology ( blu-ray ) and get the external blu-ray player off the shelf and have only one unit ( built in like it should be ) and all would be good... This is not the case... So I'm still searching for what is best in my case... Maybe one of the sony car dvd players and make it fit... Still looking...

Wait a bit and Sony has a double din Blu Ray player on the way. Otherwise the only blu ray player I have seen is a single DIN stand alone player that you would have to add to your existing Radio in its own slot. Not much choice out there now as most automotive headrest screens are not of high quality nor big enough to matter with a higher definition signal.

Why no Blu-Ray for the RV?

I suspect it's the same reason I don't have one - don't need it. On-demand cable TV, Hulu, and Netflix have made Blu-Ray obsolete.

Seriously unless you have a 50'+ tv, do you really need BluRay?
We don't need the high resolution in the TT, but we do at home and would like to be able to play the same movie on the road rather than buy a separate DVD copy.

Hmm. Buy a second copy in DVD or buy a second Blu-ray???

Decisions, decisions.

Here is my take:

1. Blu-Ray is HD. Picture is better than DVD, regardless of HDTV size.
2. When I buy movies, it is on Blu-Ray. I no longer buy DVDs.
3. I don't want to be limited to my DVD collection when I bring movies with me from home.
4. Streaming movies (Amazon, Netflix, etc.) isn't very realistic (probably never realistic) in a camper.

My truck has WiFi and my phone has WiFi. I have 16GB per month. Data plans are getting bigger and cheaper. As time goes on, it's going to get easier and easier to stream in your RV.

I can and do, however your 16gb will be gone in about 3 movies.

Unless you have true unlimited data, that really isn't a viable option.

I have a 30gb plan and it goes fast.

The data plans are still very expensive when you start using them for streaming.
