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.

besides here Ive seen several others correcting mrsamsungs information. also got bad info from a live chat person on samsungs website. not sure what to do now

Currently, there is no information on whether or not the 2011 features will be added to the 2010 and earlier models. That said, the browser is only available on select Samsung TVs, and is a Samsung browser, and not a Google browser.

From the available information, it seems that, besides YouTube, all other video services will be subscription based. Sidereelz and Megavideo currently do not have applications on the Samsung Apps system.

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!

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.

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.

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.
