If you're talking about not getting BD-Live to work, even though your player passes a connection test, the usual reason for this is that the player is unable to connect to a DNS (domain name server) so that it can translate a domain name (e.g., UniversalBDLive.com) to an IP address (e.g., 188.8.131.52). The firmware download and connection test point to a fixed IP address so they don't *NEED* DNS to work in order to connect.
But if you want to start accessing BD-Live content, then you do need your player to be able to access a domain name server so it can translate domains into addresses and find the appropriate BD-Live servers in order to deliver the content. This is what you can do to get BD-Live working:
- Make sure you have enabled BD-Live to "Allow (all)" in the Setup... Disc menu.
- Make sure an SD or SDHC card is inserted in the SD card slot
- Get into the "Network... DNS/IP address settings menu" (this is what it's called on the BD80, I think it's the same on the 35/55) and make sure the player passes the connection test by clicking on the Connection Test button. If it passes, it means the player can connect to the Panasonic server via IP address
- Now take a look at the DNS setting. If you already have "DNS Auto Configuration (DHCP)" set to "On" and BD-Live does not work, then try setting it to "Off" and provide values for Primary DNS and Secondary DNS. You can obtain values for your ISP's domain name servers either in the admin panel of your network router, or, from a working internet-connected Windows PC, you can hit the "Start" button then "run" then type "cmd" to get to the DOS prompt. Then type "ipconfig/all" and you will see 2 or 3 IP address listed for DNS. Copy these down and type them into the player's network set-up menu under "Primary DNS and "Secondary DNS."
- Hit save or OK or return (I forget which and my wife just got impatient and switched the TV over to DISH to watch Wife Swap or some other lofty reality-based entertainment).
- Re-boot the player and try BD-Live again
- When it works, send a check to Big Picture Big Sound, PO Box xxxx, etc. etc.
BTW, I used the above technique to get my BD55 working via a particular switch, but I later found out there was a firmware upgrade available for my Linksys WRT54G router (thanks to another helpful AVSer) which allowed the dynamic DNS stuff to work properly through my network switch.
