There seems to be no similar thread for this player.

I just bought this at Costco (in California) a couple of days ago, and Sony seems not to know that it exists.

I had an online support chat (I think with a computer) about the fact that I can't register this model because it's not in the drop-down at Sony's registration site. That problem is presumably easily solved but I am concerned about getting getting support if needed. First I was told that the model doesn't exist, but it turned out it wasn't in the Sony Consumer Electronics Database.

Has anyone else encountered this problem? It seems to be the same model as BDP-S570, but it's priced $20 cheaper. Does that seem correct?

I really just need wireless; not 3D. Maybe I should return it and get a different model.

Don't worry, it's a rebadged S570 that they sell at warehouse stores like Costco. The only difference is the model number and that it is packaged with HDMI cable. BX37=S370 also.

And oh yeah, one of the reasons they change the model number is so you can't price match.

I registered mine as s570 and I was able to download the new update and initialize netflix. I also had the same issue with my universal logitech remote.

Yes, I registered mine as S570 also. BTW, Netflix streaming seems to work great for me.
