    After getting up at 4:00 am on Black Friday to buy a 5120, I was hugely disappointed. It DOES NOT have Netflix! With no apparent plans by Magnavox (Funai corp of America) to update the firmware to allow Netflix, the only option is VUDU, An (apparently) groundbreaking HD streaming service -2 years ago anyway- which it seems is the last time they updated their website if the reviews and forum dates are any indication.

    VUDU does have some of the latest releases, but TV episodes are scanty and virtually nonexistent. After checking firmware, both Magnavox and VUDU sites, and even calling area WalMarts to see if there were any 5130’s (an identical model which DOES have Netflix)left, I’m taking mine back tomorrow.

    IF you want a specific streaming app on your TV/Blu-ray, MAKE SURE the logos for what you want are on the box. Seems if it’s not already included, it never will be. Word to the wise…

    does anyone else have any trouble connecting to the network? Player finds the network, but will not connect to it. I keep getting “Wireless setup is not complete. Please go to advance settings to complete setup” which does no good either, still wont find it, manual IP setting and all that does not help, firmware update also useless. Im using a att 2wire modem. Anyone figure out how to fix the problem?

    I had problems connecting to wifi, same as wolf. I kept messing with it and it finally connected. I have no idea what I did.

    I had the same issue. I upgraded the firmware and it resolved my issue. Check your firmware revision and make certain it’s the latest. If not, go to Funai website and follow the instructions on upgrading firmware.

    How do I update the firmware? I had same problem – kept teling me to go to advanced settings – then suddenly, on about the 10th try, it worked. But I can’t get Netflix. How do you get Netflix and otherwise access the internet? Can you upgrade to be able to read email and search www from this player?

    I had the same issue exactly and I spent 2 hours on the phone with magnavox and AT&T but no one seemed to know what they were doing. All AT&T wanted to do was transfer me to connect tech and sign me up for svc protection for $15/mth and they said then they would be able to fix the problem. I kept telling the woman i didnt want to sign up bcuz you have to pay an early termination fee if you cancelled prior to 12 months. The only way I got it to work was by hooking my ethernet cord to the back of the dvd player while connected to the modem…hence defeating the purpose of having wireless capability and not be able to use it. I’m going to call back to AT&T sometime this week to hopefully get someone who isn’t over seas to prevent having a language barrier problem on top of my wireless connection issues. The only thing Magnavox told me was that the problem had to be with AT&T and the router’s internal firewall.

    I had the same issue with my magnavox, and I finally found a forum with the answer that corrected my problem. The only way we could get it to read my wireless was to go back to settings and then erase the original network settings and the blue ray settings, then turned off the power and unplugged the blue ray (unplugging is important).Then we unplugged our wireless router. we turned our router back on then our blue ray and told it to look for the wireless router and it found it and set it up just fine… I have tried every other trick in the book and think that the magnavox has lost its connection multiple times and is not as good as my vizio which so far has caused me no problems connecting. next time it goes down again i will repeat what i did above and hope that it fixes it every time.. much quicker than spending hours on the phone with a rep or manually setting everything back up only to have it fail with the connection still. Good luck and hope this trick works for you also.

    After two months of working fine, my Magnavox MBP5210/F7 would no longer connect to Netflix or Vudo. I wish I would have found this webpage first because jj’s post on April 1, 2012 did the trick. I had tried unsuccessfully every set up and reconfiguration option with both my router (although I knew it wasn’t the issue because my laptop could connect just fine) and the blue-ray player. Save yourself the headache and simply unplug your router and the DVD player. It is important to actually unplug and not just turn it off. I waited 15 minutes, plugged the router back in and made sure it booted properly and once that was OK, I simply plugged the DVD player back in and it found my SSID automatically and I just went through the automatic set up, re-entered my password and I was good to go.

    The latest software update from magnavox has caused their blueray players to not play netflix.
    The technician I talked to couldn’t fix it and admitted their latest update has a bug that won’t let netflix play.
    They refused to let me load the previous version than would let netflix play !!!!!
    Believe me I will think twice before ever buying a magnavox product ever again !!!
