Bought the Samsung BD-D5700ZA BluRay player along with the Samsung UN55D6000 LED TV at Best Buy. Also bought a Samsung LinkStick. Absolutely love the TV. Can't say the same about the BluRay player. Since the TV does not have a built-in wi-fi, I had to use the BluRay player to access the content online. I was never able to connect to the internet. Tried to get answers from Samsung 5 different times. Every time they asked me to do something different including changing router security/authentication, etc. Bottomline is...this player has some serious issues. RETURNED THE PLAYER TO BEST BUY. KEPT THE TV. I bought a Sony BDP-S580 BluRay3D player for $109 today (Black Friday) at Best Buy, Set up was a breeze. Also bought a Roku for more content. Since I can access Netflix and other content through Sony and Roku devices-I'm contemplating returning the Link Stick. Does anyone see a benefit in keeping the Link Stick?

Overall-Samsung makes great TVs and BAD BLU RAY PLAYERS.

All of the 2010 and 2011 Samsung BD players should offer access to Netflix's full movie library.

Mr. Samsung is indeed incorrect. I have this unit, and wireless is built-in. It connected-up to my Linksys router without an issue.

I'm fairly sure that MrSamsung's answer is incorrect. The BDD5700 comes with WiFi built in, so you shouldn't need additional hardware to connect to your WiFi.

Yes, the Samsung WIS09ABGN LinkStick is required for wireless capabilities on the BD-C-5700. You'll also need to have a wireless access point, or a wireless router and Internet service.

Thanks for your interest in Samsung products.

The BDD5700 will not offer FM radio connectivity. For a unit that does offer FM Radio connectivity, please have a look at the Samsung Home Theater Systems.

The BDD5700 should offer AllShare DLNA, which allows you to access saved content from a DLNA device like a PC or Cell Phone (please refer to your manual for additional information).

I'm looking at the manual and I don't see VCD listed for supported format OR formats not supported. Since it's not listed in either case I'm going to have to guess this unit doesn't support it. Perhaps Samsung's site will give more info?

Question

Why is the audio choppy on the MLBTV app?

According to MLB tv, it's a Samsung issue...but I can't find anything on it. The audio on every game goes in and out about every 5 seconds.

Make sure to upgrade your firmware first. This may resolve the issue as this unit apparently has a problem with choppy video/audio when using online services like Netflix, etc. The firmware update fixes this issue. Check your manual on how to update it.

If that doesn't fix it then you may not have enough bandwidth to handle the game's video and audio. The MLB plugin should allow you to downgrade the quality of the video (to free up bandwidth), and that may help you too. Good luck!

I’m sorry you are having an issue with your device. Although with the information you have provided I do not have a solution for you; contacting Samsung Service (refer to your device's manual for more information or visit Samsung's website) would be your best next course of action.

Since the BD-D5700 offers AllShare (DLNA streaming feature), it should be able to access a NAS connected to your home router.

answer 2
Although the player should upconvert a DVD that is not HD to 1080p, the output resolution can be manually set to the same resolution as your display. Additionally, when you connect the player to the TV using the HDMI cable for the first time or to a new TV, the HDMI output resolution will be automatically set to the highest supported by the TV.
