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

Will it remember my network password?

I am currently in the process of returning the BD-D5500 because although it offers wifi access (if you purchase the LAN adapter) it does not remember my network password. Every time the unit is powered down it forgets the password and I have to re-enter it the next time I start it up. Samsung tech support informs me that there is no way to set the DVD player so that the password will be remembered (inconvenient enough to be a deal-breaker). Does this model allow you to set the password once or does the same problem exist? Do ANY Samsung models allow you to set a password just once?

After consulting support, it seems that the Samsung BD players are supposed to save the Passwords; however, if for whatever reason the router is intermittently resetting or loosing connection with the BD player, the password maybe lost. For additional information, please contact Samsung Service.

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.

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.

Internet viewing is limited to internal apps like YouTube - there is no "browser" like Safari, Explorer, or Chrome.

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.

Wifi built-in means the unit can operate on your wireless network without additional hardware while wifi-ready means you need to purchase an add-on piece of equipment from the manufacturer to communicate with your network.

"Wi-Fi Ready" indicates that the unit is capable of performing Wi-Fi streaming, however it will require the additional Samsung WIS09ABGN LinkStick in order to do that. This is also available through your retailer.

Thank you for your interest in Samsung products.
