Thank you for your reply, Greg.
I tried updating the firmware - didn't work. I still have the same server. Maybe my 5 year old Blu Ray is a dinosaur now, I don't know. Still plays DVD's fine, so I'll hang on to it for now.
I've poured over reviews on the newer Sony Blu Rays, and the average 50-65% approval ratings (with many much lower percentages of unhappy customer reviews) just doesn't cut it with me. I'm thinking I'll probably end up with the Roku as others here use.
Thank you again for your response.
