Samsung BD-P2500 Blu-Ray Netflix requires daily activation
I'm also having the same problem - just started a couple of weeks ago. Prior to this, it was also working fine for almost 2 years. No changes to the Blu-Ray set-up, so it has to be something at Netflix.
Also, once I go to the Netflix website, enter the activation code from the TV screen, Netflix streaming starts up after a few seconds and works fine, but the Netflix website gives me an error that the code is no longer valid and to enter a new code. Just for kicks, I tried getting a fresh code and reactivating it, but I get the same error message from the Netflix website.
I reset my router and also powered-down the Blu-Ray by unplugging it for several minutes, but nothing has fixed the problem. I also tried deactivating the Blu-Ray player on the NetFlix website, then reactivating - no change.
I called Netflix and they, of course, blamed it on Samsung (I saw that one coming) despite the fact that nothing has changed on the Blu-Ray, and it works fine once I reactivate (every day!).
I should note, though, that this problem started at roughly the same time that we changed our service plan from 3-DVDs-at-a-time to 1-DVD-at-a-time. And, of course, Netflix said this didn't have anything to do with it. But it seems like the Netflix database is daily telling the website that the Blu-Ray player associated with our former 3-at-a-time plan is no longer valid, so the reactivation is not "sticking" to our current 1-at-a-time plan. I understand this shouldn't matter since it's the same account, but who knows how their database software works.
