      The BD-P2500 supports Blu-ray, DVD, CD audio, and AVCHD playback; it will not play MP3, WMA, JPEG, or Divx discs. The back panel features HDMI 1.3, component video, and composite video outputs (no S-video). For HDMI, the output-resolution options are 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p/60, and 1080p/24. The menu's Movie Frame (24 fs) option allows you to enable 1080p/24 playback; once you do so, the player will always output 1080p/24 when it is available on a Blu-ray disc. For component video, output-resolution options are 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i. The setup menu includes sharpness and DVD noise-reduction controls.
      As for audio connections, the BD-P2500 offers HDMI, optical digital (no coaxial), and both 2- and 7.1-channel analog audio outputs. The player can pass the Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio formats in their native bitstream form over HDMI, to be decoded by a receiver with the necessary decoders. It also sports internal decoders for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD High Resolution audio; however, it does not contain an internal decoder for DTS-HD Master Audio, which is more common than DTS-HD HR. The BD-P2500 can pass 7.1-channel PCM audio over both the HDMI and multichannel analog audio outputs. The step-down BD-P1500 offers similar audio capabilities, but it lacks the 7.1-channel analog audio outputs.
      Given the player's Profile 2.0 designation, the inclusion of an Ethernet port is a given. This port allows you to connect to the Internet to access BD-Live Web features on Blu-day discs and to perform firmware updates. The back panel also has a USB port, which provides storage for BD-Live features. The BD-P2500 has 1GB of onboard memory, but you can also connect a USB storage drive (not included) for additional storage of BD-Live downloads. The BD-P2500 does not include any advanced control ports, like RS-232 or IR.

      Good blu ray player, but rubbish at upscaling.

      I bought this Blu Ray player because I was looking for a budget blu ray player that also upscales regular DVDs. Unfortunately, I have not noticed any difference between watching a dvd using a dvd player and the apparent upscaling of this blu ray player, despite changing the screen size from 16:9 to 4:3. If anything, all it did was make the screen size smaller. However, playing blu rays brings out the High definition capabilities of my television incredible well. I did not realise how clear my TV could be. The blu ray player is very quiet and can be run for hours on end without getting too hot, which is a big benefit. It also looks sleek. The 1080p resolution enables a bold and bright picture, which brings the film to life. I recommend watching HD action films as it brings out the best in them. The player also enables the sound to be much clearer than my dvd player. I would recommend this player to anyone on a budget as I think it is worth the £70 i bought mine for. But if you can stretch to slightly more, other players have considerably better upscaling capabilities.
