Rated 2 out of 5 by from Annoying Flashing Globe Icon Top Right Screen Every time I play a DVD, I get this annoying flashing globe icon. I am not using this for any online applications and have not set this up for online operation and have no desire to. The globe just starting appearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best DVD player that I have ever owned I have had 4 DVD players in my life time The BD651D-N Blu-Ray Player with Wireless Connectivity is by far is the best DVD player I have ever owned. The Blu-ray picture is great! The magic motion remote works with both my LG TV 47LV5500 and my LG DVD BD651D-N player LG products can't be beat I would Recommend LG products to everyone

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worst piece of electronic equipment I ever bought. This blu-ray player is awful. The only reason I gave it a 2-star overall rating is because it DOES actually play the DVD's we put in it. My main problem is that it is slow in everything that it does and half the time, it doesn't read that there is a disc in there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Integrates well with my LG TV I really like the SimpLink functionality that automatically switches the input on my TV to the Blu-Ray input when the BR unit is turned on. Only downside is that it takes some discs a while to load up. Not sure if this inherent to Blu-Ray or just this unit. Also, I've disabled network access because I don't care for BDlive functionality, and I really wouldn't miss the BDLive nag screen that pops on EVERY BR disc that tries to connect to the internet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BD640 Very easy to setup, connect to the internet via wireless connection, update firmware. Only issues the unit should have had a built in wireless module, plus additional usb port in the rear. The menu option was well laid out qand easy of use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I couldn't possibly hate this product more.... I couldn't possibly hate this product more if it called me names every time I turned it on. The only redeeming feature of this blueray player is that it's light-weight. >.) The remote feels cheap. >.) The player doesn't register input from the remote unless the remote is pointed [directly] at it. >.) The virtual keyboard is cumbersome to navigate, and very slow and erratic in responding. >.) The player only reads discs about half the time, and asks me to choose between DVD and USB sources, even if there's no USB connected. >.) Reading discs takes a very, very long time. Sometimes up to a minute. >.) The OS on the player wouldn't acquire a dynamic IP from the router, and static IP settings would revert to all "0's" after saving/applying them. >.) The Wireless USB dongle worked just fine on my laptop; windows 7 recognized it right away and downloaded drivers without any hassle. So the network settings problem definitely resides with the player itself. >.) Speaking of the Wireless USB adapter, despite it's good functionality, it measures about 2.5 inches long, and looks really stupid sticking out from the front of the player. I wouldn't recommend this product to someone a hate.

Why YouTube doesn't work anymore on my blue ray playet bd640?

Asked by: Pjasmine
YouTube began updating their API (backend coding) to provide new features and existing features which caused the YouTube app to stop working after April 20, 2015 and it affected certain products manufactured before 2013.

You can view Google's Official article regarding this change at support.google.com/youtube/answer/6098135?hl=en. This is not a defect or malfunction and we apologize for any inconvenience...^IFV
