    I have heard you just take it to best buy but I have not heard of anything changing.

    According to the Insignia website "There is no firmware update available for this model". Looks like I will be returning the player shortly! Too bad... the $100 post-Christmas price tag was a hell of a deal.

    There's no update available for this NS-BRDVD Insignia Blu-ray Player at all (by a Best Buy member) and the funny thing is that i remember the guy selling this product to me , saying : " Go for it !!! , you can ALWAYS UPDATE FOR THE LATEST BR VERSION" . Talking about BD Live and stuff like that , this is one of many things that you can't do with this Blu-ray Disc Player.

    This player just have a pretty good price ( A ), but it's very , very , very , very slow ( C- ). The player has problems reading some original dvd's and dvd-r ( F- ). This blu-ray get lost in action and the #1 option is un-pluging and wait 15 sec before restarting again ( F- ) . My personal Rate for this BR is ( D - )
    Go to funai (Magnavox , Sylvania & Insignia product company for more info. http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?... or insignia-products.com/default.aspx

    Notwithstanding that there is no update available, this is an excellent player. It performs better than the Sony BD 300 and the Samsung 1500 that I own. This player playes every movie that I have rented or purchased including all new releases. Now as far as updating the firmware for True HD etc, I may be speaking out of turn, but most new receivers on the market today especially Harmon Kardon , Denon and onkyo have the ability to convert the sound from your player to True HD, If I am in error with what I just said please set me straight. For the price, I rate this player very high for picture quality and find no issues with load time. Loads faster than the other two players I have. I only use this player as right when you want to watch a movie the other ones always require an update .I hope that someone makes a player that doesn't go through all the BS to watch a movie with updates.I will not purchase ay more players that have this requirement.

I need to upgrade my blu ray player - won't play new blu ray discs


If you are using the BRDVD there is only one update and it is a few months old. They are adding new security features to new Bluyray discs this month and all players out there need to be updated. The unfortunate side of the BRDVD is that Insignia is refusing to update the player although Funai(the comany that has made the player for them) has released a update that would work with it with little work by insignia.

To help get this player updated it would be good to go to the forums here and post that you still use this player. We got a update the first time so it should be possible to get another.

Good luck and enjoy this little player.

Will not play new movies. keeps rebooting to previews


There is one new firmware available here:http://insigniaproducts.com/products/dvd-players-recorders/NS-BRDVD.html

just download the firmware and follow directions to install it. One problem is that Insignia will not do a new update so any movies coming out with the new security feature on new Blurays will have problems playing.

Visit the insignia forums and post some messages or write a email to help get our players running for at least a little longer.

Thanks and feel free to comment with any questions at all.

I hve only had this player a little over a year and expected it to be used at least three years.............................the more people that talk the longer the player will be updated!

The player will not play new movies


There is no charge for the BRDVD firmware although Insignia has been bad about the updates. This play is made by Funai and has several sister models.

Insignia has only released one firmware update while Funai has continued to support the products and has plans to support it for a unspecified time to come with a firmware update that just came out on March 1st.

Here is a link to a support page for all the models by funai including the Insignia BRDVD:http://forum.blu-ray.com/blu-ray-players-recorders/48943-funai-bd-player-owners-thread-magnavox-sylvania-insignia-etc.html

Here is a link to ingnia where you can find this models main page as well as firmare updates and instructions telling you how to install them.

On a side note please go into the forums and look at the messages for updates on the disc problems and such. We are trying to convince Insignia to stick with their customers and update the player as Funai is so we can get some use out of what we paid for.

Hope I helped and enjoy your BRDVD.

Intermitant sound on a new bluray dvd (public enemies)


Have you updated the firmware on it? If not go to insigniaproducts.com and do so. If you are trying a Blu-ray movies(you said DVD but you never know) it could be that the player needs a update to support your movie.

Also see the forums at insigniaproducts.com to get info on updates and to let insignia know you still want updates to continue using this player. We need to get them to update this player for at least a year or two longer. My BRDVD is only about a year old and want to keep it for at least 3 years.

I have Insignia Blu-ray DVD player and a membership with Netflix. My DVD player references Netflix download coming soon in order to stream movies straight to the DVD player. Is that download available?


This model, NS-BRDVD, is not Netflix capable. Models NS-BRDVD3, NS-WBRDVD, and NS-BRHTIB are, however. A firmware update may be required when first setting up your player for best functionality.
