    Is this the NS-BRDVD or does your unit have an 01, 02 or 03 after it?



    This is important because these are different manufacturers with very different firmware solutions.



    Short answer for you is newer titles on Blu-Ray are not conforming to a standard authoring scheme which is causing problems for players. Yes the PS3 is able to play newer discs because it is connected to the internet to download patches for new disc issues as soon as they are available from Sony. The Blu-Ray players that are non-network capable need to wait for patches to become available, and then the user must locate, download and install.



    I will have the team here look into this issue when I hear back from you on which model is having the problem.

I had the same problem. You HAVE TO WAIT 5 minutes after you insert the firmware update disc and BEFORE you press enter on the YES or NO option for updating the firmware.

Will not play new movies. Keeps rebooting to previews


If you are referring to "new" meaning recent releases, there was a change in the DRM and authoring scheme that was created by the releasing publishers. Several Blu-Ray players are having issues with this and solutions are being rolled out as quickly as possible.

The Insignia Blu-Ray players have solutions available as firmware updates on:
www.insigniaproducts.com

Search by your model number and download the latest firmware to a USB stick, insert into the player, follow the instructions, and you should be good to go. you should also receive updated applications like Netflix and Pandora.

Hope this helps.

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.

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.

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.

Insignia blu-ray player only plays music cd'


I would need to know which Insignia Blu Ray player you have to get a better idea of what potential problems you may be experiencing. Model number should be NS-XXXXXXX.

It sounds like the loader is failing, the lens is scratched/dirty, or the firmware isn't performing properly.

Recomendations:

Try using a Blu-Ray cleaning kit to clean the lens. Don't use a CD or DVD cleaner kit since these are too harsh for the Blu-Ray lens.

Try updating the firmware to the latest version by going to www.insigniaproducts.com and searching for your model number. Updates allow for more functionality of your player as well as greater compatibility with Blu-Ray discs and other disc formats.

Hope this helps!
