    Janpor - for info, you should be able to pick up HDMI cables pretty cheaply. For example, in the UK, I've bought cables for 3 and less which have worked perfectly well.
    (But yes, plenty of shops...

    Ouch, doesn't sound good :-/
    Did you leave a disc in it during the upgrade? This can apparently 'brick' the player. (I swear I'm not making this up! If only this was a bad joke...)

    See Toengel's...

    Yup, that's basically right.
    You might want to consider repeating the process a few times - seems decidedly inconsistent. I was on the point of binning mine when it finally worked :-/
    Nooo idea...

    Yeah, I had the same problem (seems to be pretty common on here).
    See some of my previous posts - e.g....

    Well, I had a hell of a time getting mine reset. I had all but given up when it finally worked.

    One of the other possibly-relevant ingredients in the voodoo nonsense I had to go through was to...

    Does it freeze right away, or after playing for a while (like an hour)?
    The latter happened to me, and I sorted it out by multiple factory resets - combined with clearing NetTV memory a few times...

    Any joy yet?
    Mine had what sounds like an identical problem and the factory reset wasn't fixing it.
    But clearing the NetTV memory as well seemed to do the trick.

    No worries - thanks for your efforts.

    However, I wouldn't be able to justify spending any money on getting this unit repaired - it has been a serious disappointment from the start I'm afraid.

    I...

    Umm, presumably that would not be covered under warranty, since the unit is over two years old now?

    Hi - yes, finally managed it last night.
    Sadly, no dice. The unit had been off for hours, and I didn't connect it with a HDMI cable at all - just the analogue video & audio leads. As before,...

    Hi. Thanks for the enquiry.
    Tried to reply yesterday but (not for the first time) the forum wouldn't seem to let me log in... weird.

    I haven't yet managed to test it with the analogue video...

    Hmm, that would be quite tricky as there aren't any other TVs available.

    However, I presume that you suspect an issue with the digital comms over the HDMI link, so I imagine that linking the...

    Gosh, you think the TV may play a role? That would never have occurred to me as a possibility.

    It's hooked up to a Sony KDL-26T3000 over a HDMI cable, and yes, Easylink is enabled on both the TV...

    OK, it's on v1.67 now, and sadly the problem remains.
    I've used the "Reset default settings" option a few times now and no dice.

    Anything else I should try?

    thanks!

  18. BDP5200/05 freezing after about an hour of playback

    I had this problem a long time ago and thought it had gone, but either it hadn't gone or it's back.
    Firmware is v1.61 at present.

    I've tried what I have seen various people recommend to make it...

    As I last said a few months back: "Performing a firmware upgrade while having accidentally left a disc inside the unit is enough to brick it?? "

    This is beyond lame. I've written a lot of software...

    Aside: my understanding is that hiding the SSID barely enhances your security at all. From experience though, it generally does add enormously to the pain of making new connections :)

    If that doesn't help, it could be you have a flaky unit (within the hardware) or just some incompatibility between your boxes. Mine (also 5200/05) works fine over WiFi and sees multiple media servers...

    For info - I've been reluctant to upgrade my 5200 cos of the reports.
    BUT nonetheless I'm realising that it too is freezing up after a little under an hour of playback, repeatedly, on various...

    Must admit I haven't tried it for ages - never found anything worth using on NetTV. May I ask what useful apps you have found? (Will try NetTV when I can and report back ;-))
