Wow, this is a great price! My question, though, is does this not come with a remote? I don't see it listed anywhere above (or maybe I just missed it?), but I have not checked the seller's site yet. This is a big enough deal for me (my husband, actually) that it might make the difference between buying it or not.

From reading the most helpful review on Amazon (@drjing: thanks for that link btw!!), new models of this player do come with a remote. I would like to think that a refurbished one would come with one as well then, but I have learned to assume nothing when shopping online! If anyone knows for sure one way or the other, please let me know. Thanks!

I checked the daily steals website, and the OP gave all of the information available from them, so there's no mention of a remote that I saw anywhere. Grrr... I wish there was a way to find out for sure!

Also, since I am very technologically handicapped, I am wondering about the lack of wi-fi. Would this player have to be connected directly to a modem for many of its features to work? Or is there some type of go-between device I could use? My modem is no where near where this player would be, and that's not going to change. I don't mind having to plug the player into something - it's just that the "something" can NOT be my wireless modem. Would I have any other options?

I really want to buy this, and probably would, even not knowing if it came with a remote, but if the only way to stream video & use its other features is by plugging it directly into my modem, that just won't work. Thanks in advance for any input people can give me about this.
