Having just purchased my Sony BDP-N460 Blu-ray player, I was eager to get it set up and going. I also purchased a Linksys bridge which provides the wireless internet access. This all went well, very well in fact. The blu-ray player easily access the firmware update, etc. So far so good.
Next I tried to figure out how in the world one accesses Netflix, etc. No small task as nothing in the manual touches on this. After a lengthy wait on the service line I find out I need to register the unit (ok, fair enough), but also register a second time on something called My Essentials. This supposedly would then provide a validation code I need on Netflix.
But, the saga continues. Guess what, the site is down and has been all evening! I can't believe a company of the stature of Sony would permit such a situation. I'll try again tomorrow but if this doesn't sort itself out soon I will be taking the kit back to Best Buy. Too bad, as I like the basic unit and the install generally went well. But, they have nothing in their user manual that so much as points at a web site to help get the internet capable access, which is the prime reason I bought the unit. This is such a failure on Sony's part I can scarcely believe it.
Anyway, if anyone has a work around I'm all ears. Thanks in advance. Hope this helps others.
