I installed it yesterday evening. "The Tourist" seemed to play fine for the 5 minutes I watched it.

This morning I noticed though that Net TV is behaving strange: it wouldn't start just for a split second displaying something like "testing network connection ... ok" and then the home screen would appear. When I did it the 4the or 5th time I got a distorted home screen. At that time I switched off, waited half a minute. Switched the BDP on again and then cleared Net TV memory. Now Net TV started after selecting it 4 times on the home screen. First 3 times I get the split second image "testing network connection... ok" again and then the Net TV registration screen. After registering it takes now 4 times selkection of the Net TV icon before it actually displays the normal Net TV screen with apps.

i just finished the upgrade and with Smart Tv it reacts quite slow until now....I will keep on trying during this evening

I did not see your behaviour yet, do you still have that?

Hi Pacman,

No don't have it anymore. When I select NetTV (5 minutes ago) I first see "testing network blabla" during less than a second and then the std home screen of NetTV loads.
Selected within the Vimeo app a HD video and it works.
