I just bought the star wars saga on blu ray....I have noticed some of the movement of people is a bit jerky...
I have a panasonic bd 45 blu ray and lg lcd.I tried my sons ps3 but its even worse.
Whats the consensus,is it the player/tv or hdmi cable..
I could stretch to 100 If a newer richer sounds player will resolve it.
Regards Tony.

Should have at least an ethernet port (network connector) on the back - plug it into your router with a patch lead, and run through the player menu looking for an update option.

It may well be wireless, Chris has the right idea though :)

I can certainly say i didn't notice any issues with the 5 Star Wars blu ray films i have played so far on my Panny player. Different model though:- DMP-BD80..

worked my way through the software update kindly linked....tried three times to burn the latest software onto disk to no avail...player says it cant read the disk...file size seems ok....seems to be un compressed.
A bit flummuxed ...thanks for bearing with me...

What are you using to burn the data disk? I reckon something like Nero would do the job..

Just out of interest was the disc finalised?

Why are you trying to burn data discs ? :scratch:
It's a BDP, not a computer.
Try what I've suggested and the player will go to the net and download any updates directly from its preset download site.

Although I have a different system everytime I have had a jerky moment it has been software related. So persevere with the download.

I agree with Chris you should be able to download directly to your player.

Agreed, also looking at the list of machines on the link there is no BD45 mentioned :scratch: I'm not exactly sure what you downloaded but unless my eyes are mistaken there is nothing for your machine there ;)

My BDP is an LG BD550, and I've just updated the software in the manner I've described.
It's in the main system menu, and needs a network connection.

Do you have to set the 1080/24p manually does it do it automatically. should be in the manual somewhere.

Best & easiest way innit. The Panny should do auto as mine does :)
