upgrade 1.54 bdp5180/12
Ik kon geen uitzending gemist kijken. Ineens zag ik nieuwe software staan. Als ik de speler via internet laat zoeken komt de melding geen nieuwe software gevonden. Toen maar via Usb stick en dit lukte. Alles gedaan volgens beschrijving en nu staat de nieuwe software er wel in maar kan ik helemaal geen NetTv meer openen. Ik krijg een wit scherm i.p.v. een keuze menu.
Dus wat er fout is weet ik niet maar deze update heeft het slechter gemaakt.
please post in English (it is an international forum) - and so we all can help you...
I also did an upgrade for bdp5180/12. Unfortunately, only worse, I did not miss the show first and now no network television it. Now get a white screen while the software update was successful. First of all a problem that the new software over the Internet were not found when done as described by USB and it worked but with a negative result.
Same here (or should I say Shame SW-update makers?)

Before upgrading no problems with 'Uitzending gemist'. After the upgrade I get instantly the message 'Your network is out of order. Please activate your router'. Sad.
Am I correct that all wifi/Ethernet settings are alright, just this NET TV service in Netherlands is not working? Thanks.
From my understanding, there was re-construction work done for several NET TV services (a post has been put to the NET TV forum). Several NET TV services have been disabled. But most of them are now available, including 'Uitzending gemist' (by end June). It's working on BDP5200 here. Maybe re-setup the wifi/ethernet settings to see if there's something different?
Kind regards, kwinnie

Bought at juli 18th, 2011. Net TV worked with SW v1.50. After upgrading to v1.54 Net TV (or the network?) was not avalable. Checked settings of my LAN. They were untouched thus correct.

We just tested the 'Uitzending gemist' NetTV service with a BDP5180/12, with Software 1.54 and from our side it's currently working perfectly via Ethernet or Wi-Fi.
Please allow me to advise you to:
> Reset your device from the Setting Menu.
> Re-connect your device to to your Network(Router).
> Set Netherlands as Net TV User Location.
> Clear Net TV Memory.
> Access to Net Tv from Home Menu.
> Register properly your device to The Club Philips.
> Try again to access the 'Uitzending gemist' Net TV service.
If it's nor working via Wi-FI then try via Ethernet.
Resetting your router could maybe solve the issue also.
Did check/reset already all mentioned hints apart from
I remember a registration question just once say at july 20th. Choosed for 'Remember me later' but the question didn't pop-up anymore since.

I use ethernet not wifi.

Every now and then I tried, without success.
But enjoying the dlna feature made me use the bdp5180 very often.
And everytime I tried te get NetTV.
And then I noticed on the display the message 'auto' after choosing NetTV from the browser.
It displays 'browser' > 'auto' > 'NetTV'
'Auto'. Auto? I use a fixed IP address.
With this clue I was able to test and reproduce a working NetTV and a not working NetTV.
First I set my IP setting to Automatic. Ok on everything and NetTV is working.
Then I set IP on manual. NetTV is working.
Shutting down the BDP5180 and power off (not standby).
Power up and ... NetTV doesn't work.
So although in the settings menu Fixed IP shows with the correct settings, the software isn't working accordingly.
I was able to reproduce this time over time.
Please try this with your installation and let me know the results.
I own a 5180 for some days now and hadn´t a single problem with any of my movies, be it Blu-Ray or DVD. Not even the layer-change hickup on commercial DVDs that i had with DVD players in the past.
I want to ask here if i should worry about this device is not at firmware 1.57 like other players. Is it because it has different hardware and don´t have problems or more like it is very rarely sold and simply less errors are reported?
I don´t want to buy myself the Star Wars Blu-Ray edition in half a year only to see it not working on this player.
Anyone with some experience?
You are asking for user experiences and your concern is not having a v1.57 upgrade for this BDP player?

The only real hick up I experience is the NetTV feature not working with fixed IP address, but this doesn't affect the use of DBD and Blu-ray.
The other flaw I noticed is that changing the volume of my amplifier connected through coax SP/DIF interferes with the screen for a short instance. This is a bit weird but not really disturbing.
