Blue Ray Issues

Colin Smith Colin Smith Profile: Colin Smith

this weekend I went out and I purchased a blue ray player that would go into a room that does not get used much but since I do not have Cable or Satellite, I wanted to be able to watch all my media from my media center and from the web and from my DLNA server in that room. I went and found what looked to be the perfect device.

PanasonicDMP-BD755
On the surface this looks to be a great player at a great price. So I got it home connected to my Gig Switch, HDMi to the TV, and power. Started to walk through the set up and it locks up. Over and over again this happened. I took it back to the store and got a replacement unit and again the same result. This time I got online and found that this unit has a very obscure and specific flaw. I have a WHS on my network and I love it. Well apparently the BD Player does not like it and this is what causes the lock ups. I disconnected my WHS just to test this and now everything works great. So it is a great player if you do not have a WHS on your network. I attempted to upgrade the firmware in hopes that Panasonic had addressed the issue but it had the latest firmware already applied. So back to the drawing board and now off to find another device.
