Q: I just bought a new plasma TV but I’m disappointed with the picture. How do I fix this?

Q: I heard you can now stream Netflix movies through your Blu Ray player, how do I do this?
A: Assuming that your Blu Ray player has this feature (most new models do), you still need a broadband connection from your home network to your player. This can easily be done with a hardwire Ethernet cable to your router or most manufacturers will sell a wireless adapter (Dongle) to connect instead. (See example answer here.)

Q: I have an older Blu Ray player and have never had a problem playing discs before, but I just bought a new release and it doesn’t seem to be working? What could be the problem?
A: Most Blu Ray players have the ability to be upgraded with software, which is required for some newly released movies. This can easily be done by going to the manufacturer website to download and install the update. It can be installed with a simple flash drive or by connecting to the home network. This will upgrade the unit and also make it compatible with newer Blu Ray discs. (See example answer here.)
