Yes. because they're not using Bluetooth as their connectivity to their remotes.

As for other univ. remotes, I have yet to see a bluetooth remote outside of the ps3 remote.

I wouldn't think that there would be much of an issue. If a universal remote was able to grab the code, it should work with your hardware.

Seems like too much work for me. Hopefully, Logitech will release a Harmony remote with IR, RF, and Bluetooth support.

I may be a little late to the party here, but I have the Panasonic BD player and my universal remote works just fine with it.

No, Universal is HD DVD exclusive. :-P


But seriously, universal remotes should work with any BD player except for the PS3.
