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?

From the available information, it seems that the BD-D5700 will not be able to play VCDs.

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.

All Bluray players can play on older non-HDTVs! All of these players have a built in setting that detects what type of TV you have so it will downsample the video so it will play on older TVs. Also on the back is standard video/audio connections that you can use as well as a HDMI port for when you do upgrade to a new HDTV. (HDMI is a must for a digital signal to a HDTV)

Although having an HDTV is recommended, you should still be able to use this product with an SDTV and use all of its features, including Netflix.

Question

Why is my internet not working with the blu-ray player?

I was told when I purchased this particular model of blu ray player that I would not need any additoinal components to connect to the internet so that my Father could stream Netflix through the blu ray player. It has worked on and off (mostly not worked) since we got it. We have a wireless router and have our laptops in the house have no problem connecting so why does this?

You could have walls that sometimes keep the signal from reaching your router.You might even try turning your Blu-ray on and press the search button on your router.

Although the remotes are not universal remotes and are signal device remotes, using Anynet+, you will be able to control the BD player through the TV. Anynet+ is a function that operates through HDMI jacks and lets you control up to twelve Samsung devices with your Samsung TV remote, with up to three of those devices being of the same type (for example, three DVD players). You can only use Anynet+ with Samsung devices that have the Anynet+ feature.

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.

Although the Samsung Blu-Ray players can access app content through the Samsung Apps ecosystem; at this time, none of the Samsung BD Players will offer the Web Browser. The Browser is only available on select 2011 Samsung TVs at this time.
