Sorry I couldn't be more help.
I never use CEC or quick start. I always send 1080p24 when available.
I have 15Mb service from the local Internet Service Provider(local Telephone Cooperative)
. They aren't the most reliable, but when it works it works just fine.
to a Linksys N600 Dual Band Router
which in turn connects to a BEC 5200W DSL Modem
I don't do a lot of wireless communications, so an N600 is sufficient for my needs. There are four ports connected to the Router - DLS Modem, HP Printer, Computer, and BluRay.
Obviously a hardwired connection, not wireless.
I would still like to know what went wrong, but ... I was nearly at the end of an extended 2 year warranty. I called the Warranty company expecting to NOT talk to a human person and to get nothing but stonewalling. Fortunately, it went without a hitch. I shipped the BluRay back to them, as soon as UPS scans the package, the Warranter will send me a E-Gift Card, which means I will have to purchase a new one from Walmart.
So, what do I purchase next??Sony 6700, LG, Samsung, Phillips, Other???
It will cost me about $30 more to get the Sony BDP-S6700
but I'm OK with the extra cost.
Thanks for the Tip about Quick Start.
I will disable that in the new one.
I guess this was the one time when the Extended Warranty
did pay off. I think I'll do that again ... depending on the cost.
