    This player is really not very good
    wont skip HD straight away ,Takes about a minute to respond
    is so slow to respond in general
    wont even load your app

    the 5900 is way better

    someone mentioned (may have been you ) that the BD-E5500 is actually a 2010 device, or that its running the 2010 firmware (has a completely different smarthub to the BD-E5900).

    the price of a BD-E5900 is super cheap, so thats my recommended cheap option to get this app. at NZD$109 its a great choice (has 3d and everything).

    I'll put BD-E5500 on the unsupported list

    Yeah it seems to be in between
    Plex shows it as a 2011
    Different menu structure in smart hub

    I'd buy another 5900 but I can't find any at the right price

    oh smithscity.co.nz use to have them for $109 (i just double checked my order email to make sure my model was BD-5900) but now all they have is the BD-5500 for $109.

    You could email them to see if they have any more in any of their stores?

    Where would I find one of these? Given a low price like this I'm tempted to buy one to try this client.

    Yeah, unfortunately it looks like those sorts of prices aren't available any more. More like $250+ now.

    bugger cant find it anywhere near that price anymore. selling around $300 now (i really got a bargain )

    theres a BD-F6500 for $238 from jbhifi, but thats double the price of what I paid for the BD-F5900

    the BD-F5500 wont work (no smarthub), and the BD-E5500 is running the wrong firmware.

    trademe may be the best bet (but when I was looking most people wanted insane prices for second hand goods)
