Sony blu-ray player not able to receive internet content, but connects ok. New uverse setup.
The blu-ray player being used is the Sony BDP-BX520 3D palyer with Wifi from Costco. The player was working flawlessly until the uverse intstall.
The install of uverse was yesterday. Before yesterday blu-ray player was connected wirelessly to my Netgear R6300v2 router perfectly. I was able to access all internet connent for all services - Netflix, Youtube, Pandora etc.
After the uverse install I got bumped up to 15 mb/s connectivity speed and internet access works everywhere: TV connects ok, Surround receiver connects ok, ipad, laptops, phones all connect ok and very fast. Sony blu-ray player does not connect.
Here is what I tried:
1. Reset blu-ray player back to factory settings and connect again wirelessly. Internet connectlon listed as OK but "receive internet content step 3/3" spins forever.
2. Reset blu-ray player back to factory settings and hard-wire connection to Netgear R6300v2 router via ethernet cable. Same results.
3. Reset blue-ray player back to factory settings and hard-wire connection to UVERSE modem/router. Same results.
4. Invoke web browser app on Sony blu-ray player. Browser starts and can go to google or youtube and I see content displayed - BUT none of the other service widgets will receive content.
I suspect that either Sony network is blocking it due some ipv4/ipv6 strangeness or some setting on the uverse modem/router box is blocking it. Everything else seems to connect and work ok.
