If I rememeber correctly thats how it was for me too. Netflix and Hulu were the first to act up. Then others like Vudu, Amazon follow later. My problem ISP was Centurylink (formerly Qwest) and now it is Comcast.

panasonic BD 85 question

Is there any way to turn the TV off while you listen to the blue ray player using it just for music? The TV and player are tied together somehow (is this because of the HDMI connection?) so that turning the TV off also turns the BD 85 off. One common scenario for me is listening to Pandora...but once I've used the TV as my monitor and got the Pandora station set up and running, I would like to turn off the TV and just listen without the visual distraction of the Pandora screen saver.

Is your TV also Panasonic ? If so do you have Viera Link enabled between the tv and player ? There is a viera link option that shuts off the connected device automaticaly. You can try disabling that.

My TV is a big Sony....I get the menu off of the Panasonic that I thought was a Viera Link...I'll look into it. Thanks.

Anyone here have the new DMP-BDT360? Wondering if there is any reason to upgrade from my 85. I can say that the 360 feels like a toy next to the 85 and has only HDMI and optical, no legacy connections at all. It doesn't have the steel case that the 85 has but from a PQ or feature standpoint I'm wondering if it is any better.

I have both of the devices you mention and agree with your assessment. I haven't noticed any material differences in PQ, but the 85 has Amazon - 360 doesn't. And the 360 has advertising on the bottom of some of the menus, which is really weird. Here's the thread on the 360: Panasonic DMP-BD91/BDT260/360/460 Owner's Thread

Just thought I'd add, I know someone with this unit... it has Amazon.
