Weekend Update Update

So, as of about an hour ago, everything with the Blu-ray player and Netflix works, other that the fact that streaming Netflix movies play through the TV, not the home theater.

Who knew that to get the player to send its audio to the home theater you had to change the default connection from PCM to Bitstream and that to get Netflix to stream movies you had to disable the firewall in the router? Not ten or eleven of eleven or twelve tech type people I talked to at Netflix and Samsung.

Now, I need to figure out why my Dell laptop won’t load a page after it is on for a while. Is it the computer, IE7 or something else? I’ll keep you posted.

You could always route your TV's sound through the stereo receiver. That's what we do. We turn the TV's internal speakers off (it is one of the many, many settings available), and the TV sound output is connected to the good external speakers. I'm the electronics hooker-upper at our house.

I don't know what I did; but, everything is now running through the home theater speakers. All is right in the audio/video world.
