I haven't seen this issue posted about before. I'll send this over to our Blu-Ray expert, and see if I can get an answer on that. In the meantime, see if you can try changing the network connection (wired/wireless) in the Networking menu.
Keep me posted.
Well, I was watching a Blu-Ray disk for the first time on my new BD-P1600 player. It's not connected to the internet, and I don't plan on upgrading the firmware unless I have a problem. However, it seems that it's determined to find the internet. A grey screen came up from the opening menu saying "No Signal", and it would flash some static about every 10 seconds while I watched the movie "Ironman". How do I tell it not to try to find the internet? I have no ethernet in my living room. Do I have to buy the wireless dongle to make the message stop? Will it then update the firmware, and lock itself up? Is it possible to just watch DVD's and Blu-Rays without accessing the internet?
