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.
I just buy this product bdp-150 but even i have connected with my router that it has dhcp enabled it doesn't seem to has Internet.
A cable i connect is just like i was not connected the lan cable at all.
I have try the same cable at the same router at the same port to tv, media player and laptop and work fine but at bdp-150 doesn't.
And when i go to network connection test it bring me failed.
It has the official firmware 1.05.
Even when i choose to make a downgrade from 1.05 to custom firmware doesn't regonise the file firmware "BDP-150_SP.bin" even at fat32 hard disk.
Or even i try to install the latest official firmware 1.08 from the official pioneer site still doesn't regonise the firmware and bring me the error message "download file data corruption" or "no valid update file is found".
Please HELP ME.
