I nearly went for this, until I did a quick search for the Samsung wireless LAN adaptor - they are £50-£70 .... ouch!

I'll wait for a sub £100 bluray player with wireless, and leave my PS3 in the living room in the meantime.

This seems a great price, does anyone know what the difference is between BD-C5500/XEU and the BD-C5500 ?

his product was advertised in-store as being able to access BBC iplayer. It's also supposed to be able to access ilovefilm and facebook. IT CANNOT. Samsung never developed the apps to make them work. I had to keep calling tech support at Samsung because they didn't know what was going on and so just cut me off. In the end, a product specialist phoned me back and admitted that they haven't developed the apps necessary to use these features. I've had it a month and they are still not available. They won't tell me when they will be. It's the main reason I bought it and I feel very let down.

This player does now have iPlayer (admittedly about 9 months late) and is great for this price - £13 cheaper than Amazon.

XEU is just the regional code (in this case Europe) most retailers leave it off.

I take it any wireless LAN adaptor will plug into this via the USB port or does it have to be Samsung??

Have you had any problems with iPlayer and the screensaver kicking in? I've got the bd-c5300 and every 10 minutes on iPlayer we have to press a button on the remote to get rid of the screensaver. There's no option to get rid of the screensaver. I've seen it reported on the net by a few other people and I believe it's been reported to Samsung so I'll just have to wait and see.
Shame really as otherwise very pleased with it, and I can even watch iPlayer in HD for some programmes.

Hot deal by the way though.

Use a Wireless Access Point costing below £18.00 and you will not need the Samsung LAN Adaptor!

Could you not just run a cable from your router to the player? I hope so.

Yeh I agree, the wifi adapters are criminally priced! Would consider getting a cheap old model (Fat) PS3 2nd Hand if I wanted Internet TV.

Yeh you can just run an ethernet cable to it and have it wired.

dunno if this helps, but with the Samsung Galaxy S phone, XEU is the product code for the UK, so perhaps its just a UK specific one that supports iPlayer etc?

out of stock =/

This is a great player and works well with DNLA support built in (this means you can stream stuff off your PCs running Windows or other DNLA supported devices. The Samsung Tab also makes a wicked remote control (although you need the optional WIFI adapter to get this to work). You can also use a Tab as a bridge to select source and destination DNLA devices - sounds complex but is very easy to use and surprisingly useful if you have a few PCs dotted around your house.

is the SAMSUNG BDC5300 an inferior model compared to this? thanks.

Best idea. I bought a Samsung Bluray Player too and then got hit for £50 for the wireless dongle. Also, mine is old now and they wont be updating the firmware anymore so I am stuck without iPlayer/LoveFilm etc. Although I have got YouTube as if thats any consolation. If you have a PS3, keep that as your main Bluray Player. I dont have a PS3 but am now tempted to get one just because of this kind of codswallop.

would make sense. due to television licensing only folks in the UK should be able to access Iplayer.

as for connecting it to the internet, i would either wire it, or buy a wifi bridge which tricks it into thinking its wired (like i do with my xbox coz i wasnt paying £50 for their adapter)

Or look out for some cheap homeplugs - that's what I'm using.

BD-C5300 lacks the DNLA other than that not too sure, but then it only cost me £60 with 5 films before Christmas!

I assumed that would be the case, but there doesn't appear to be a setting anywhere to turn off the screensaver - it's a bit frustrating!

Whats this like with the various divx / mkv etc formats (no lessons on containers please!) And will it connect ok to a WHS2003 server?


I've played quite a few mkvs and avi's, the only files ive had bother with were those bigger than 4gb.
#31

Yer mike I googled fault . There is no screen saver turn off setting so I'm going to ring samsung help line tomorrw and see wat they say. Because normally a DVD player has a turn off settin. Hopefully they can help.

Yes it is.

The 5300's main downfall is only having one USB socket which prevents you from using a Wi-Fi dongle and having profile 2.0 (You need to connect a USB stick of at least 1GB for storage media)

Thanks for taking the time to 'phone them - I was going to try and contact them through their website but it's seems you have to register and all sorts first and to be honest I couldn't be bothered. Thanks again for getting in touch with them and letting me know, I've read on another website something similar (another person getting a similar response from Sansung) so hopefully they'll sort it soon - how tricky can it be?

You say how tricky can it be. Iplayer took 10months. Hopefully not take as long.
