Old Guy 09,
You do need to assign your player to your Netflix account.
The Netflix code can be generated from the Netflix website. Here's a screenshot from the Netflix website after clicking "Your Account & Help" Menu after you sign in:
I just activated a Netflix account and went through the process of setting up my HT to the internet. It says I have a connection. However when I try to access Netflix it states that Netflix service is temporarily unavailable. When I go to Netflix to activate my Netflix Ready Device it's asking for an activation code. Do I need the code for my HT to access Netflix and if I do, where do I find that code? Is there something else I should do at my end with the HT device to set it up?
