I'm currently on the look out for a Blu Ray player which does the following;
- Plays 3D SBS x264 in mkv containers from an USB NTFS Harddrive
This is basically the only thing I need atm, ISO support would be a bonus but not required.
Price is a factor.
Would I be correct in assuming the Pioneer BDP-150 would do the job?
And I read something about a CFW which would enable 3D ISO Playback is that correct? If so how would one go around acquiring and installing the CFW?

CFW? What's that?
However one participant in the thread warns that if you want to flash your BDP-150 with custom firmware it has to have firmware version v1.02 installed. If v1.05 is installed, it will not allow flashing older firmware nor custom firmware. I'm not willing to read through the entire thread for you to find out if there is a workaround. Read it yourself if you want to find out if there is a way to flash a BDP-150 with the wrong manufacturer firmware installed.
My most important question though still remains, will it play 3D SBS x264 in mkv containers from an USB NTFS Harddrive?
Can't really seem to find a clearcut answer anywhere, so would like an answer from an owner if possible
I suppose anything is possible, but typically hacked firmware is more limited in function (ie. it fixes subtitle issues) than to offer functionality the player doesn't have. My limited experience is that 3D BluRay players should be able to play SBS MKV files as you wish, but I have no personal experience with this particular player to confirm it. NTFS via USB should also be OK. You may be waiting a long time to get someone here to say "I know for sure it works because I've seen it myself" on this model. Pioneer is not as popular as it was in the past. I don't know about ISO support though, but if I had to guess I'd think it more likely to not be supported, but I could be wrong.
