Default BD+ yet??

Does anyone know if any of the new blu rays have BD+ enabled on them? And if and when it is placed on those discs, do I assume correctly that our players are going to need a firmware update?

The Day After Tomorrow and Rise of the Silver Surfer both feature BD+. Depending on your player, they may or may not work. If it doesn't work, you'll need a firmware update, which may be available or still being worked on, depending on your hardware manufacturer.

You can check out these two threads for more info on BD+ issues:

Thanks for the quick response, but the above links won't work for whatever reason.

Do any of the Anchor Bay titles have it?
I'm assuming not, right?

I have no Idea what BD+ is. But will The Day after Tomorrow and Fantastic 4 Rise of the Silver Surfer work when using a PS3?

Thank You!

FYI-

Posted over at AVSForum.com, here's the current state of Silver Surfer compatability:

BD-P1000 - can be finicky, some have stuttering
BD-P1200 - get a screen saying to update firmware, will not play
LG BH100 - reports that it doesn't work (tested by me, sound issues)
Pioneer - ok
Sony - ok
Panny - ok
PS3 - ok

I would assume that the Day After Tomorrow would be similar, since it is the other BD+ movie out there.

Weird that it is players from the two companies that are going to release dual players that have problems, everybody else works.
