Angry 3D rentals removed

[edited to add model]

I am no longer able to rent 3D movies on my BDP-S5100 from Sony's Video Unlimited with the latest firmware that was released in December (M15.R.0197).

Renting 3D movies was the primary reason I selected this Bluray player, but Sony has decided to remove it. I phoned SEN and ask them, they have no answer. Sony product technical support doesn't know either. Nobody knows who would know and how to address the issue.

This was the first and last time I buy a Sony product.

I don't believe the BDP S3100 ever did 3D movies.

BDP-S3100 Twonky Book (my book live) Video Sorting?

Hello Folks... New to this and don't know if I'm doing this right but I have a question about the BDP-S3100 Twonky Book (my book live) Video Sorting?

So here is my issue: I have a lot of movies stored on my WD My Book Live streaming unit that uses a program called Twonky. I go to the Twonky selection on my BD player menu and I see all movie folder options. When I choose to folders by year, only the chapter files show up with no names so that does not work for me.

Only one folder in the menu shows the actual movie names and I would like to be able to sort by date instead of alpha. Is this possible? I have them sorted on the WD My Live Book by most recent but it only shows up on the BD menu in alphabetically order.

Then yesterday, out of the clear blue, i was no longer able to access Netflix, or anything else online for that matter. Accessing Netflix via the button on the remote does not work either. Selecting this will eventually give me this: "connection status cannot be confirmed" and something about the "server cannot be accessed. the network might not be setup correctly". But when i go through EVERY step under the network settings, it says that the Internet connection is working fine, that it's connection is good. All of my firmware has been updated, so it's not that. So my settings say i have a good Network/Internet setup, but the Internet Video says differently. Nothing else is having any issues with my Netgear router. Any help is greatly appreciated!!

**************

Sony's servers are down currently. As you may or may not know, all of the apps on your Sony BD player go through Sony servers, not directly to the apps (Netflix, YouTube, Amazon, Hulu, etc.) themselves. Here's a link to Sony's community forum board about the issue. It's a nationwide, maybe worldwide outage. They are coming back online apparently, but slowly.

**************

UPDATE: As of around 11:20pm, mine is back up in North Texas. It had been down all evening.

RE: Default settings

Aaronwt...yes, I have tried the "reset to default settings", with no luck. I have tried unplugging the ethernet cable and plugging it back in. still no luck. Pressing the Netflix button on the remote will get me a message saying that it cannot connect to the server. But all of the internet connections in the settings are being reported as good. And I can watch Netflix on other devices in my home. Appreciate any and all help
