I am looking to use my PowerPC G5 (not MacPro) as a media Center. Can anyone point me to a Blu Ray Player (I don't need a burner) that I can use with this machine and actually view in HD?

at the moment mac OS X doesn't have the capabilities to view blu ray movies. They even have the hardware available, and you can burn blu ray movies from a mac ( it think). But ironically theres no way to play them over a mac short of boot camping windows
