Sorry, what's the X20 series? And would you agree that my problem is player related? Any recommendations aside from buying another player? This player was so highly reviewed...

Read problems usually mean it's time to clean the hub. That's to be expected when a player is a couple of years old.

I'm glad to inform you all that I have sold my BDT220.
I bought a Sony so now I can finally play and stream video without freezers.

Occasionally I can watch that segment in the slowest FF mode (sound still on, double speed).
Last time it happened I got a replacement BR disc that did the same thing at the same spot. Ordered a DVD of the movie that worked. The Netflix folks said I might have to update the firmware, but I have the latest version. Any thoughts? No one posted an answer to the OP's post. This is REALLY annoying. Thanks.
Netflix Blu-ray discs almost always skip/freeze on my BDT-500 which gets light use and is only 13 months old. Discs look new and play fine on my old BD85. I am ready to throw this thing into the junk pile next to my BD87. Time to try a Sony?

Actually, I did the same (discarded, not sold). Netflix discs now are playing on the Sony with no problems. I was in denial too long

I got the BDPS 5200. Price was right, and it does everything I need it to do.

I bought a Sony 5200 about 6 months ago just to get NF 3D streaming and it would constantly lock up. Had to unplug it & start all over, both with streaming & BRs. Sent it back for a refund. I've got a Panny 210 and a Panny 220 and have never had a problem. Goes to show you they all make lemons.......

My X20 is my most solid BD player. I have an Oppo S790 and S7200, also. For app streaming, Sony is my favorite. For DLNA, Oppo is my favorite.

I got a new 4K television last week and was testing how well the variety of devices connected to my system work with it (currently BDT220, TiVo Roamio, Roku 3, WD TV Live, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and this PC). Its built-in streamings apps are very high performers, but I have a suspicion that they might give video to the television at 60 Hz, with 2:3 pulldown applied. The television's marketing brags on how well it handles 24p and 48p sources; sad if its own smart apps aren't one.

In any case, I was testing various streaming apps on the BDT220, since I can turn on 24p output for such, when I discovered that at some point its Amazon app had been updated, to a design similar to the PS3's (this, only no cover art in the 4 small panes next to the big one). Inasmuch as my new television's Amazon app has the same UI, they seem to be making it the standard (though Fire TV's app is different).

The big news is that it has 5.1 sound and Watchlist support!!! Every time they issued a firmware update for a couple of years I anxiously checked the Amazon app for 5.1 sound and Watchlist in vain and eventually stopped checking. This new player must have been slipped in with the update last March or the one in November. I rarely use the BDT220 at all, since I almost never view BDs and have things that I prefer to use for streaming (its Netflix player's response to commands is profoundly slow, nigh unto unusable).

I might just have to hook it back up. I've been doing a lot of swapping around lately.

Panasonic Player Settings

I had a problem with Netflix so I found out I needed a firmware update. While doing this I found out that there are player setting adjustment that I can make. Has anyone done this? I have a DMP-BDT220
