When starting a movie instead of going to the menu it starts the movie immediately & I have to select disc menu to go back so I can select setup from the menu. Another instance is when I play a DVD that contains a number of episodes with sub menu's such as a TV sitcom, for example, I play a couple episodes & after each episode the player goes to the sub menu, as it should, where I can select what to do next. When it's at a sub menu I turn the player OFF. When I turn the player back on instead of going directly to the main menu or at least the sub menu the player starts playing the first episode bypassing the main & sub menu's altogether. It doesn't even go to the menu for an episode, it just starts playing from the first episode. I have to select "disc menu" to get back to the main menu. I don't like that. What's wrong & how can this be corrected?

The exterior design is nice and small, unfortunately the LG-BP340 player has minimal features & lacks sound connectivity options. Connectivity- Believe or not, you only get 1 HDMI port on the back of this unit, and that's it! No Audio optical out (TOSlink), No Coaxial out, No analog RCA out, totally unacceptable. If your TV does not support DTS surround via HDMI & audio out, then you cannot transfer & listen to the 5.1 or 7.1 Surround DTS Master Audio tracks of Premium BluRays & DVDs, you are limited to only 2 channel audio out, which is a total waste for a BluRay setup. I have an LG 5.1 Home Theater tuned by Mark Levinson, with TOSlink Optical In, but I cannot use it with the BP340 because there's just no way to connect it due to the lack of the TOSlink Optical audio out or Coaxial audio out on the BP340. On the other hand, If you have a surround receiver that supports audio via HDMI 1.3 or better, then you can enjoy true 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound with DTS Master Audio or Dolby True HD. WiFi is included, but has really weak reception, there's no LAN port on the back, my 3 year old entry level cell-phone has much better WiFi reception, an external WiFi antenna jack would have done wonders to solve this issue, but it is not present. On the plus side, you have access to NetFlix,Vudu & YouTube, you can also pair up your smarphone via web so you can input text faster when searching for online content and it works a lot better than using the included remote control. Picture Quality is also basic for BluRay, the player lacks any options to adjust the picture quality such as sharpness, deepcolor, etc. Verdict: The lack of sound connectivity options, weak WiFi reception & minimal set of features make this BluRay player a poor choice.

Excellent Picture Quality
Comments about LG Blu-Ray Disc Player With Built In Wi-Fi:
Picture quality was the most important feature for me and I read several reviews that had positive comments on the LG BP340 picture. Streaming was also a feature I wanted. Picture quality is very good and from what I understand it upscales standard DVDs to HD quality. Not sure if that's true but standard DVDs look very good and when I check the resolution input on my TV it says 1920x 1080/60P. It has a USB port that plays a wide variety of video formats. No Ethernet port :( Wireless streaming was poor until I upgraded the software and now it is very good and that's with my router about 40 feet away directed down a hallway into the living room. Trying to find out if it also upscales video files to HD from the USB port and DVD. The unit is a bit slow in response using the remote but its worth it to me to have the great picture. Not many smart apps but that wasn't what I was looking for. I would recommend an LG Blu-Ray player.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

great value for the money
from Kansas City, MO, USA
I think this is a really good deal for the price I paid.I like that it has the built in WIFI with Netflix,YouTube & Pandora already installed.Exellent picture quality & easy to navigate.
from Cape Cod
No issues with the product. Little more in price than similar other brands, but worth the price for the extra quality. Small size compared to old DVD player from 2000.
I would say overall rating of Good ,if on sale.
Easy, fast Set Up , enjoy using the USB port. The front panel Leds for Power On & Open/Close could be brighter, in case you lose the remote control. The usual complaint, it would be nice to have owners manual come with the unit. I have not tried the Wi-Fi feature yet. So far the unit is doing the main task I purchased it for, Wi-Fi feature, later on.
Very bad product.

Easy to install
from Sterling Heights, MI
Took about 5 minutes to install, and 15 minutes to learn all the features and operation. really great!
Amazingly easy to install and operate
from Orlando, FL, USA
I had an older BlueRay that was barely functioning and had lousy streaming functionality. The LG was extremely simple and quick to install. The operational icons are simple to understand and one or two clicks are all that is required to select any feature. The wireless streaming is flawless and quick, no more reloads part way through movies or hesitations. I love it.
Pleasantly surprised how well this product perform
from Borger, TX 79007, USA
I was able to operate and set up this player in a matter of moments. I was so surprised at how well it performs. I got it at a good price. It's not fancy but does the job well.
