Your question is specific to Netflix. Can you access the weather or You Tube as it may be a issue with your log in account for Netflix. If you can access other apps then most definatly that is.

No, the USB port is not set up to support a WiFi adapter. You would need a wireless adapter that connects by an Ethernet cable. Please be aware this is not a LG-recommended setup, but it can work.

Depends what the "USB Wireless Device" is.
Most routers only have Ethernet connections.
If the device is a HD you would need a sourse to pluf it into then sshare it on the network. (Source = PC)

By this, do you mean there are numerous lines running diagonally across the screen? If that is the case, you have your TV connected to the BD550 with the wrong cables. Even if you have a SDTV with component cables, it can only handle a 480i resolution signal. You'll have to connect the BD550 to your TV with composite (A/V) cables long enough to set the component output to 480i, then you can switch back to component cables.

Your laptop cannot act as a wireless adapter for your BD550. You will have to buy a wireless adapter that connects via Ethernet cable. While not supported by LG, it does work. Follow the adapter's instructions for setting up the adapter and connect it to the BD550 and you're set.

There is no way to stream the content directly from the laptop to the bluray player but we can suggest using the TV as a monitor to watch the content you are streaming on the laptop on the TV.

The BD Live feature is actually embedded in the content on a disc. A USB Drive must be connected in order to buffer and temporarily store the additional Blu-Ray data from online.

Since you're asking this in a Q&A for the LG BD550, then you must have one, or are thinking of getting one. This Bluray player is an excellent Netflix streaming device-I have used it and find it is better than other methods I have used. The only thing better than the BD550 would be any other LG Bluray player with streaming capabilities.

I am interested in subscribing to netflicks, but nothing else. I am waiting for delivery on the lg bd550 blue ray player, and the lg 42" ld550 television; and I already have the entry level Yamaha home theatre system and 3G internet service on my laptop computer. How can I pull all of this together to make it work without additional services?

I dont understand your question? Pull all of this together? If you are going with Netflix and or already have an account. you can go through your DVD player which I assume is hooked to your 42' and watch movies on your TV. You will have to set up your DVD player with the Netflix account which is well exlained in the owners manual. other than that you should be good to go.

Question

Can BD550 connect to my account, with MLB?

MLB lists the BD550, as one of the Blue Ray Disk Players, that will. I've streamed the last three MLB seasons, to my computer, than I also have connected to my HD tv and watch it there. But I'm fixing to get a set top box, that connects to the web, and get all my programming, from it, and not cable. I know Roku and Boxee connect with MLB, but I'd like to get the BD550 with you, if that is also possible. MLB, is my main enjoyment of watching tv. Does the BD550 also link to MLB, or are they wrong that it does?

If your HDTV has a DVI (Digital Video Interface) port, you can buy either a HDMI to DVI cable or HDMI to DVT adapter to connect the BD550 to your HDTV. Otherwise, component (red/green/blue) cables are an excellent choice, although they limit you to 1080i. Also remember that either method also needs a set of audio cables-either the red and white stereo cables or a coaxial digital audio cable. The BD550 does not have an optical audio output. The HDTV has to be HDCP (High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) capable or some titles will not show on your TV.

The BD550 has both composite (red/white/yellow) audio/video and component (red/green/blue) video outputs but does not have an S-Video output. Most SDTVs have composite video inputs and some high end SDTVs have component video inputs. If you use component video, however, make sure to set the output to 480i as that is all a SDTV can handle. Also remember that component cables are video only-you'll either need a set with audio cables included or a separate set of audio cables. Thankfully, LG includes a set of audio cables and a separate video cable with the BD550. Finally, if your TV doesn't have any RCA inputs, you can run the player through an RF modulator. However, if you're doing that, it would probably be better to ditch the old TV and get a HDTV!

Do you have a router between your cable modem and your BD550? If not, you should get one. It will make connecting the player to the internet easier, as well as giving you a hardware firewall to protect your system from hackers.

As I understand it, the USB port on the BD550 serves two purposes. It lets you plug in a flash drive so you can play music and show photos on your TV (as well as record songs from CDs to flash drives.) It also will allow you to update your software if you do not have high speed internet access. The USB port, as far as I can tell, will not support a USB WiFi adapter. You would have to use one that connects by Ethernet cable.
