LG BH200 HD Combo Player

The HD format war seems no closer to an end, and many people still can’t choose just one format. The LG BH200 HD DVD / Blu-ray combo player aims to solve this “which one?” problem by supporting both formats in a single player. The BH200 will of course support both HD disc formats along with 1080p upscaling of DVDs and audio CD play back.

The LG BH200 will also support BD-Live functionality, HDi, Blu-view, picture-in-picture and can output 1080p / 60Hz over it’s HDMI 1.3 output.
