Thanks, I was poking around after I wrote that post and found it. I also found a place to "Register Your Device." I looked and found a Netflix ESN: that is 18 characters long in the menu for my LG BR player. When I entered that number on the computer, it told me activation had failed. Both the computer and the DVD player were on and internet connected, so I was puzzled. I've been watching streaming for two months, wouldn't the device be registered for it to work?
Also, when I select Netflix from an assortment of providers, there is a red Netflix screen with five bars. One bar is displayed as larger, indicating it is on that bar, but it jumps around like a cat on a hot stove. Whichever bar it stops on before it goes to the play menu seems totally random. It can be at the highest bar, and I can do it again in 15 seconds and it might stop on the left most bar or the middle. Is this just something to keep me entertained while it loads?
I also noticed for the first time that movies have an HD, SuperHD, or blank listing by them, and that if it is in 5.1 that will be right next to that slot. When I selected the highest speed rating in the bandwidth settings to maximum (up to 1 GB per hour, or up to 2.3 GB per hour for HD), there was some improvement, but nothing earth shaking.
Any other tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated. Forum members here are really quite helpful. So thank you.
