Your ISP has to be set up for access to Netflix's Open Connect Content Delivery Network. You can test whether they are at http://signup.netflix.com/superhd.

I know my internet carrier sucks but DSL from ATT is much worse. Go to your help page in Netflix and follow the links on your PC to verify
Netflix now offers 3D streaming for select titles in the United States with the following devices:
•Sony PlayStation 3 (connected TV must support 3D)
•LG TV Series: LM6200, LM6400, LM6600, LM6650, LM6700, LM7600, LS5700, LS5750, PM4700, PM6700, PM6900, PM9700
•Additional device support coming soon!

To stream titles in 3D, your Internet Provider needs to be connected to our new content delivery network - Netflix Open Connect. Visit our Super HD page to see if your Internet Provider is connected. Open Connect is required for both Super HD and 3D streaming.

If you have a compatible device and your Internet Provider is connected to Netflix Open Connect, you can find 3D titles by looking for the 3D logo.

Please note that 3D streaming requires an Internet connection speed of at least 6Mb/s, while 12Mb/s will deliver our highest 3D video quality.

For more information about Netflix Open Connect, visit our Open Connect page.

That list is outdated. I've been using my Sony S5100 for 3D from Netflix for almost 8 weeks now. I got it because my Panny BDT220 did not have access to the Netflix 3D streams. And also the PS3 Slim is limited to 720P output for 3D from the apps like Netflix and Vudu.

When I press Option it says "This Operation is not available". If I just press POPUP Menu in the middle of a movie it still says "This Operation is not available". How does everyone else get to the Main Movie Menu when the movie is playing with the DMP-BDT-220?

If you press "Option" while the movie is playing it should take you to the option menu. That will work only if the movie is playing, whether it be a disc or streaming. If that doesn't work for you I would think something is wrong with the player or the remote.

Hi, I've just got my 320, is there a browser or how else do I load new apps and features?
Cheers, I'm new to this but like the player.
Dops.

post #3696 of 4169
Not sure if I'm posting this in the right place? Does the 320 have any method of browsing to find new features or sites to load from. I'm in the uk and want another catch-up tv channel.
Thanks

I'm a new Panasonic Blu-ray player owner since I was able to buy two refurbished BDT220 Blu-ray players online at Best Buy for $14.99 right before they were sold out. I figure I may as well have a couple Blu-ray players at my disposable and save my PS3 the trouble and also have one as a backup. It's also nice to have a Panasonic Blu-ray player to match my Panasonic plasma. biggrin.gif

eek.gifeek.gifeek.gifeek.gif $14.99 ?!?!??!!! That was a heck of a deal!!
post #3700 of 4169
Wait...whut?
post #3701 of 4169
Yep, $15 for a refurbished model. I couldn't help but buy two. The listing isn't on Best Buy anymore since I figure they just wanted to get rid of their stock of these older Panasonic refurbished models and they succeeded because they sold out quick. If you're on Slickdeals as much as I am you are bound to find some amazing deals:

Wow, I can't believe how I could have missed this deal! I get a Slickdeals email and somehow this deal got by me. I don't mind having only one blu ray player but missing this deal is what bothers me.

I wouldn't count on the e-mails to inform you on the best deals. I'd say you'd have to be on the site regularly and refresh your page on a regular basis.

Well, as much as I like some of the deals on that site, I just don't have the time.

When I was looking for a subwoofer I was on that site quite a bit because Slickdeals is actually what got me interested in the Jamo SUB 650 back when they had a link to that sub. I eventually found a very good deal on one and bought it but if I'm not looking for something specific I rarely go to Slickdeals and spend very much time there. I usually just glance through the deals and move on. I do give them credit for my subwoofer purchase even though I didn't buy it from one of their links.

I imagine I'm not the only one that would have liked to pick up a couple of those 220's for family and friends at that price. I'm probably going to be spending at least a little more time on that site in the future due to seeing that deal.

Congratulations RomanBlade86!

Hi All,
Does anyone know if you can use a Bluetooth USB device on the Panasonic 220? I was hoping that I could connect to that from my computer for streaming. Any help is much appreciated.

Why do you need (and how were you planning to use) a BT USB device for that purpose? You can stream some video via DLNA from your PC over your LAN or you can play them from a mounted share (I think).
post #3708 of 4169
my 220 say check disc. will not play dvd's. plays blurays fine. all the web works fine also. we have a place at the mouth of the au sable!!!
post #3709 of 4169
my bt220 won't play dvd's? any ideas
post #3710 of 4169
If it plays Blu-ray, but not DVDs, then it sounds like the red laser is shot.

I have a Chromebook and would like to beam my music to the blu ray player instead of hooking up via hdmi.

I've never seen any indication that it can handle BT audio protocols.
post #3714 of 4169
Not sure if this is the correct forum to post this

Ok i have the panasonic bdt 220. Connected thru hdmi to the onkyo then to my panasonic 65gt50. When i stream thru netflix or hulu plus. I can hear bleed thru sounds like a Fm radio station very faint. I have no idea were his would be coming from. Any ideas???
post #3715 of 4169
I recently purchased a bdt320 and am having a terrible time with network (SMB) shares. It connects to the network okay via WiFi (20 and 40Mhz) and Ethernet, it connects to both Windows and MythTV DLNA services, but SMB shares, not so much!

I can connect to the domain controller okay but no other machines in the domain. The DC is running Samba 3.6 with the other machines as domain members.

I did notice that the username field in the bdt320 is too small to include the domain name.

Are there some tweaks I need to make within the Samba configuration? Does the panasonic require a workgroup configuration? (please say no)

Thanks
post #3716 of 4169
As there is not enough room to specify a domain prefix in the username, I had to make sure the Linux server had an account on its local sam database:
1)Temporarily change the machine's smb.conf to "security = user"
2)Create an SMB password for the username (smbpasswd -a username)
3)Revert to the original smb.conf of "security = domain"

Problem with heat causing picture freezes

After moving my AV equipment from an open rack to an enclosed cabinet, I've experienced discs freezing on (BDT320) playback. Initially I thought I got a bad disc from Blockbuster (by mail subscription) but it started happening on too many discs. Taking the 320 out of the cabinet appears to have fixed the problem, discs were no longer freezing. It probably didn't help that the 320 was siting on top of a Directv DVR either.

I searched this thread with "heat" and did not find any directly related posts. Not sure if anyone else has experienced this issue.

Obviously some additional cooling or airflow is needed. I think for a first pass, I'm going to try placing a notebook cooler under the 320. All the coolers I've seen are powered through a USB port and the 320 does have one on the front panel.

Can anyone verify if these players are capable of playing .vob over the network without delay between chapters/files? I have all my dvd's ripped and saved on my NAS... just hoping this could play them. I'm stuck between making a HTPC or buying a blu ray player with streaming/networking capabilities.
post #3719 of 4169
Panasonic is just about the most limited streamer on the market. It definitely won't stream vob.
post #3720 of 4169
I own the 500 model , most playing mkv files , I have a Yamaha AVR with no HDMI so I connect it to the player with optical and analog 7.1.
The problem I have is that when I am playing a mkv movie with DTS HD 6.1 or 7.1 and set my receiver to analog inputs I don't take sound from the SB speakers .
I have set all the possible settings but nothing works , is anyone have solve this problem ...
