Any MKV's I find that don't work with <- / -> I quickly run thru mkvmerge but you need to use 3.4.

i got the 124.0 update. prior to this i was on 122.x update. I had some .avi DVDs i had burned. They were stuttering (a few of them). 124.0 has stopped the stuttering on these. As far as blu rays i never bothered with them i just keep getting DVDs .

One quick question: How do i turn off updates. In the menu under settings it says auto updates notification on / off but does that stop it from updating ? i know leave DVD in tray stops it OR disconnect from internet will stop it.

I just bought a new receiver a Yamaha RX V671. I notice that my player BD C5500 doesn't have the 7.1 output capability. Do I have to buy a new player to get 7.1 sound? Or does the player send signal to the receiver that can be decoded as 7.1 sound. I apppreciate any responses. I am not very technically gifted

They ask you if you want to do the update now. A friend was by last week and I wanted to show him a DVD and the update dialog came up and I selected cancel and did the update later.

Just connect with HDMI and set the BD C5500 to Btstream (Audiophile) and the Receiver can decode.

Only downside is no secondary audio but most time doubt you will use - and can always change when needed.

Also setting to PCM wil out up to 7.1 via HDMI so might not even notice different and this will decode all audio streams together.

Best bet it try different options with a disc that has 7.1 and see what you like best.

Bought a Rosewill RNX-N1 wireless adapter and plugged it right into the back. Fired it up and after setup, it connected to my network's router right away. No network issues so far. Got mine for $20 at newegg.

Videohelp.com has some listed but they don't seem to work on US models from the feedback I see. "Name" brand machines are usually pretty well locked down.

Having problems with this player.

Its a BD D5500

Tried watching Cars 2 3D

First 20 mintues seemed ok, then it randomly started repeating a portion of the chapter, not the whole chapter just part of it. It would not bypass this point till i fast forwarded through it.

Thought maybe it was a fluke. Nope it continued throughout the movie.

Also had random jitters and stutters

While fast forward, it would not instantly play upon pressing the buttons, it contiued for at least 5 seconds then stated playing, may have been more like 10 seconds.

Is it the player? return it? or software that could be updated?
mekkerl's Avatar mekkerl 09:32 AM 01-05-2012
I am consistently getting a network drop with my 5500. I need to go upstairs and unplug, restart the Time Warner router it is plugged into. Then it usually works again...for a limited time.

Just tried watching a movie trailer on Vudu last night...about 20 seconds in, the connection was dropped.

I have the 5500 hardwired directly to the router.
Could something else in the house be using the same mac address or ip address?
Is there something in the 5500 settings I should change?

Any ideas?

Some are having luck with the Rosewill RNX-N1 adapter running some of the Blu-Ray players wirelessly. It can be had at www.newegg.com for $ 29.99.
It has the same chipset as the Samsung Model WIS09ABGN.

Hi All

Having read through the thread it appears that people have managed to FF/RW and skip chapters in MKV files played from the USB port, but when I try on my files it doesnt work. I have encoded them with MakeMKV
I have the latest firmware

Can anyone offer any suggestions

Only works for me (using the latest firmware) if I first remux the .mkv files using mkvmerge 3.4 (Rapunzel) - more recent mkvmerge versions don't solve the problem.

Cool being a complete novice how do I do that. I downloaded 3.4 is it a case of importing the MKV file and remux or do I have to do something with the chapter editor

. . . although the option to skip to a specific time using the Tools menu does now work within the remuxed version.

I am interested to learn what others have their settings on in player menu. Mainly in the audio and video section.

I know I need the first audio setting on Audiophile...but there are other selections too.

Any input is appreciated! Thanks!

You can't scroll down to the "Playing Time" field and enter a value numerically?

Ah yep your right, you can enter a numerical value. Didnt realise it was editable

Thanks for the help
wreckedchevy's Avatar wreckedchevy 11:32 PM 01-15-2012
also to skip you need to use left/right navigation arrows not the rw/fw buttons.

another note on a previous post my bdc5500 just started dropping the netwok connection constantly so i switched it to auto instead of static ip settings and now it's working fine again.
BritInVA's Avatar BritInVA 07:52 AM 01-16-2012
All my players are set to static IPs (need for a parental control feature in mezzmo) and all mine are stable.

So...we've had one of these for a while now. Recently, I tried to enter Vudu through it, and after it churned for awhile, it gave me some error message that I think was alluding to insufficient memory.

Can the memory in these be upgraded? Sorry if this question has been answered earlier in this thread; 47 pages is a lot to wade through.

Thanks!

The C5500 has no onboard memory for features - so you just need to plug a USB memory stick in and should work fine.
mzimmers's Avatar mzimmers 07:11 PM 01-26-2012
Really? And it's smart enough to use that memory automatically (without my needing to configure anything), and all will be well? If true, that's pretty impressive.

EDIT: I just tried it, and I suppose progress has been made. It still tells me I don't have enough memory for the Vudu application, but...it comes back with this message much quicker. I glanced at the settings for the device, and couldn't find anything that would tell it to use the memory for Vudu (or anything, for that matter).

The thumb drive I put in was 1 GB, which I have to imagine is big enough; am I just out of luck?
pacofortacos's Avatar pacofortacos 10:55 PM 01-26-2012
How many apps do you have downloaded? Maybe delete some apps to free up some memory.
