Should I get the Bravo D2 or D3?

The big difference between the two seems to be that the D3 has WMV9 decoding. I'm just wondering if WMV9 is worth waiting for or not. The only DVD that has this encoding that is somewhat interesting to me is T2.

Are there more movies coming out that support WMV9 and are they good movies?

Any input would be helpful.

Thanks,

Brion

The problem w/ WMV9 playback, especially on T2, is that unless the DVD Player has an internet connection capability and you provide it a connection there is no way it can download the rights management permissions required to actually play the movie. I really doubt you'll see much WMV9 content in terms of feature films for this exact reason.

That said, there are some talks that the D2 is a Momitsu V880 clone w/ a better loader but most likely with component scaling disabled. Hopefully I can get Bravo to replace my D1 with a D2 since my loader is beginning to fail.
