This is a great machine however anyone buying for streaming be warned there is a problem at the moment with Love film and I am also having it with Iplayer due to the Last Sony update it is stopping every 10 minutes. ITs a known problem which Sony are addressing but there is no definitive date.

I got one a while back. it's ace and had no problems with lovefilm so far

Been after one of these for a little while, just waiting for the right price. Thanks :-)

Does this have BD live anyone? Cant seem to find out anywhere.

EDIT:

Found out. It does

Sainsbury have the s380 for 79 which until the end of the month Sony are offering 2 x harry potter 3d blu rays. these discs sell for 25 ish on ebay.

Beware acording to Sony forums no 2011 products will support Netflix. If you want netflix wait for a 2012 model.

Bar Stewards !!!! I was looking forward to getting a Netflix update Looks like I am going to have to upgrade my xbox instead so it doesn't sound like i have a small aeroplane in my lounge.

This sounds like a good deal, but the claim form I have seen does not seem to include the S380 ?

They must have known this for a while if the story they told is true so to keep people hanging with a it should hopefully be coming soon story is rubbish.
I wonder if they just want to make as many people update to a new bluray player as possible so aren't bothering with the older models.
It certainly wouldn't be the first time they've done something like this as they disable features on lower end models - I have a S380 that doesn't have a web browser enabled but when Iplayer has thrown up errors in the past it has dropped me into the bbc webpages and I can browse from there.

To echo what gfunk says, lovefilm is unusable at the moment - also cinavia...

sony 480 at amazon for 99.99 is a better deal - 3d enabled and dnla supported (via seperate wifi dongle of ethernet) and you also get a lovefilm 3 month sub

also the hp films arent available with the 380, you need to buy at least the 480
Edited by: "royals" 26th Mar 2012

this will play .mkv from USB which is very handy and even large 1080P MKVs on an NTFS formatted stick perfect.
Also do not upgrade the firmware out the box to M09.R.0033 if you are bothered about Cinavia as the latest FW applies that

Where is the lovefilm subscription on your Amazon 480 deal, I cannot see it?
Edited by: "Battenburg" 26th Mar 2012

cheap for what it is

No DLNA. Shame.

I got the S 380 on Amazon Warehouse for £60 with no manual - happy with that

Guys,

The code is not working, so currently it is 71,90, should not be marked as expired of what ?

Will this run large (15GB) 1080p MKV files without any problem? Thankyou

Yes via USB. I have a 32gb in my 380 model that plays the large mkv files fine

Brilliant, thanks for that. I shall get one now!

Are there any commonly found file formats that this will not play off a USB stick or HD ?

Got this from tesco when it was £50 - plays everything - mostly. Very few mkv's are not compatible - very fussy with portable hdds too - not enough power from the usb - but my seagae freeagent works on it = just about - if you pause a film for too long it disconnects.

I have a 370 and 380 too - great players.

It's a slippery slope ending in a PS3...I use mine for streaming content using DLNA, far more than Blu-Rays or gaming.

Cheers for that info, I bought my gf the LG BD650 from Asda when it was £40 and that plays everything, flawlessly, powers any portable drive I've used and plays every file I've thrown at it, including selectable subtitles, etc.
I'm gonna look for another LG I think rather than this player, probably one with smart WI-FI capabilities.

so you can stream via other sites like 4od and itv player

None of the codes worked for me. Heat added as it's a good deal at £71.90

Still available. Ordered with 10% off first time purchaser code (via Quidco 3% cashback) so cost £61.90 before cashback. Click & Collect from my local store and picked up last night.

Tried it out with LOTR BluRay on my new Panasonic TX-P42G30 (damn you HUKD). Absolutely fantastic.

Thanks OP.

Anyone know if there is an adapter avaliable to make this connect to my wireless LAN?

Just bought one of these and want to connect it to the internet without having to use a LAN cable This will require a bit of fiddling about as the connection for my modem is in a different room to the blu ray player. Is there anything i can buy to just plug in that will pick up the signal from my wireless router?

£59.97 now from Tesco -Direct -online code is 211-9718

Does anyone have this, and if so...can it play MKV movies over a HDD? I've read conflicting reports about it.

isn't this a bit of an average player?

seems a bit of an average price too - what am I missing?

eg £59.95 (tho limited stock) richersounds.com/pro…185
