In the loop 2009 I m anxious

In the loop 2009

I m anxious to get the Netflix firmware update to try that out. I don t need a wireless Blu-ray as I have wired my basement to get more reliable video streaming. I am in the loop 2009 satisfied with this player. Update as of 11/11/09 Netflix enabled! Works beautifully so far. Watched a bit of The Office. Video quality very good. My TV says it was 1080p cool. I m guessing that most of the Netflix content will be standard def. , though. I watched a in the loop 2009 minutes of Enemy Mine and the quality was OK about like Netflix is on my computer. I m getting pretty spoiled by hi-def. video after watching Blu-ray movies. Anyway, Netflix is easy to do. Just add movies to your Watch Instantly queue on your PC, and they re there on TV. Brilliant. I finally bit the bullet and went blu with this player, my first blu experience. It was extremely easy to set-up out of the box reminder that you ll need to purchase an HDMI cable separately and integrate into my system and there was no problem networking via a network cable and router into my existing ISP you ll also need to purchase a network cable separately if you need one. I haven t yet gone wireless so cannot comment on those capabilities. The system upgrade process via the network connection was also easy to set-up and activate. I found the operating manual to be particularly lucid rare with most electronics. Immediately downloadable were Youtube content and dozens of other internet channels. It is true that Netflix is tantalizingly Coming Fall 09 but there are hundreds and hundreds of movies already available via download from Amazon, including a huge assortment of HD titles. The overall picture quality has been superb from bluray discs and the upconverting on regular DVDs seems significantly better than my existing upconverting DVD player. Loading time is very, very quick there have been no stalls or quirks in audio or visuals in loading any of the dozen or so discs that I currently own. As a first time blu ray user, this player has performed flawlessly thus far and it seems to deliver exactly what it promises! Bought this player last week along with an Sony Bravia Sony BRAVIA V-Series KDL-46V5100 46-Inch 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV, Black LCD HDTV. I have the home theater setup using an Onkyo TX-SR605 1 Channel Home Theater Receiver Black AV receiver. Although the receiver is 2 yrs old. I was fortunate to choose that model as it had HDMI inputts just 2 for that time. I have assigned the two HDMI inputs to this blue ray player BDPN460 and the HD sat receiver. It would have been a great player if they had an integrated WIFI. Guess Sony has their price point all worked out. Nevertheless the user manual says it strongly recommends Linksys Linksys by Cisco WET610N Wireless-N Ethernet Bridge with Dual-Band Wi-Fi bridge. I have this unit configured to work with less expensive TRENDnet Wireless N Gaming Adapter-Black TEW-647GA V 0R. All I had to do was to manually configure TRENDnet Wireless N Gaming Adapter-Black TEW-647GA V 0R using my laptop initially due to my secure wireless network configuraion. Please ensure you go through a system update after your unit is able to connect to the network. Since this was my initial setup. It updated my firmware to the most current version ver. 120 as of this writing.
