I have an Insignia 19e720a12 19" TV and an LG BP-220 Blu-ray player. I would like to connect the player to the Internet so as to use the streaming video features such as Netflix. I have cable Internet (broadband) from Time Warner (not dial-up or DSL service), so speed shouldn't be a problem; however, I understand (from a response to a post on this subject to another message board) I would need a router to connect my computer and Blu-ray player to my Internet connection at the same time. Again, I am not using dial-up or DSL (as the person who answered my post at the other message board seems to think; I don't think he read my post very carefully), but broadband cable Internet service. Would it be possible to split my phone line three ways to connect to the Blu-ray player as well as to my computer and telephone?

Welcome to Community@Insignia™!
As far as connecting your Blu-ray player to your Insignia TV, this may be accomplished via either composite or HDMI as those are the connection types shared by the two devices. As far as connecting your player to your broadband service, you were informed correctly on the other forum that a router is needed, unless your cable modem also serves this function. If so, you should be able to connect your cable modem by ethernet cable to your player. Otherwise you will need a router to establish the home network that your player will use to connect to the internet for streaming service access. You can find complete details for completing a network connection in the LG BP220 Owner's Manual. I hope this helps.

Hello again Jeff,
To be honest, any router should work. I've used a couple of different brands (i.e., LinkSys, Apple) with complete success for all of my home theater equipment and computers. Blissfully, a home network is pretty easy to set up these days too. The last time I installed equipment, I was up and running in minutes. As long as the router you select has an ethernet connection (and I think all of them do, even the wireless ones), you'll be set. I hope this helps.

i know, it's difficult to connect them. but why don't you try another？？I have used it for almost 2 years.when i bought it, to my surprise, it can change region code, thus i'm never worried about relaxing myself when on business. It's an easy to use and professional blu ray player software for windows， including Windows 8. of course, it fully integrates with Windows Media Center too. maybe you should try. believe me, it is satisfying。
