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.

The BD-D5700 should offer the A, B, G and N bands for wireless connectivity to your home network.

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.

Question

Can I hook up the Blue Ray player to replace my existing Samsung DVD player?

I have a Samsung DVD Home theater system. Can I just hook up the blue ray player and use the same 5 speakers that came with the old system?

The player should not have any impact on your speakers since they are driven through your receiver.

answer 2
Probably not.

The home theater systems include an amplifier that are designed to drive audio to, and out of, speakers.

Blu-ray players that are standalone models typically don't have the amplifier necessary to power speakers. If you were to purchase a Blu-ray home theater system, you may be able to use the speakers mentioned in your post, however our home theater systems would come with new speakers.

You may want to speak with your authorized Best Buy salesperson to see if they can help you best choose something that meets your needs.

Yes, after 5 minutes of inactivity, a screen saver will turn on. After 20 minutes, the player will automatically shut off.

The only automatic shutoff function that this Blu-ray player has is part of the Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC) options, which would turn off the Blu-ray player in the event that the Samsung television (connected with HDMI) is turned off. This option can be disabled or enabled through the menu system of the Blu-ray player.

Otherwise, the unit would stay powered on until you manually shut it off.

We appreciate your interest in Samsung products.

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.

The USB outlet is on the right side of the front of the DVD player (it has a cap on it, just pull it open) and you just need to go into the dvd controls to switch to using the flash drive. It will play most anything you have on your flash drive.
