Please bear with me, I'm a newbie to this and don't really know what you mean by a receiver, which is why I put that it was coonected directly by an HDMI lead. I wasn't aware that there is a way of connecting it via USB socket, which is why I have been using a Memory Stick in the USB socket. Will get USB lead tomorrow and try that.
And, sorry, I missed a number from the Blu-ray player. It is BD-C5900.
