What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of junk I'd give it zero stars if I could, I've never considered something a waste of money as much as this, it does not stream and there's no problem with my connection because every other device I have streams fine, it's this garbage machine

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst product I've ever spent money on This product is the first thing I've ever reviewed because I am so frustrated with it I felt that it deserved it. This thing does not stream 90% of the time. It freezes and then you can't even reset it without unplugging the cord. I have to spend 20 minutes a night just to get something to stream on this thing. It's not my internet because I just go use some other product after this one fails and it works fine, it's this terrible product that has the problem. Do not buy this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's great... when it works. I have two of these. Only because my dad saw me using the first one for streaming and found another on sale. It. Is. The. Worst. When it is playing video it works great. But the trouble is getting there. Very frequently when you turn it on it will freeze after every button you push. Causing you to take 10-15 minutes or longer just to start a video. Then other times it will stream perfectly but you can't pause or stop the video to leave the room. I have been trying to turn one of mine off for about 30 minutes now. It won't respond to the power button. It blinks so you know it's receiving the input. It just won't do anything. I got on the computer after pushing it a few times. Pretty sure I'm going to have to unplug it to turn it off. I've been using these for months. Wanted it to stop streaming from my expensive gaming systems. It works well enough for that but you're better off buying something else. Side note. I really wish it had Crunchyroll and Funimation. I usually have those, Netflix, HBO, Hulu, and Amazon Prime at different points in the year.

Where can I get a IR remote for my BP255. The blue ray player is in a cabinet in my RV and the remote does not work though cabinet door. 

Asked by: R B A
All infrared (IR) remote controls require a Line-of-Sight connection to the controlled device. Only Radio Frequency (RF) or Bluetooth remote controls will be operable through a cabinet door. Regrettably, this player is not compatible with either a RF or Bluetooth controller. The original remote control is already designed for IR transmissions.

How can I get a connection from my hot spot on my phone to the BP255. Are I have to buy one that does that.

Asked by: Zelma
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this BluRay player. The HOT SPOT of your phone is attempting to connect to the player using a WiFi connection. According to the documentation of the player, this model has no Wireless network connection available. It is for this reason that no connection has been completed.
