I've since updated its firmware by using a USB stick; maybe next time around the update will proceed smoothly. I don't know if the issue was due to a transient problem with Sony's servers, or what the issue might have been.
My unit updated the firmware just fine with the auto settings, it's just the Prime app would play videos. Every other app I tried worked (Netflix, Vudu, Youtube) just not Prime. Once I manually set the DNS servers, everything works. May be say kind of network "glitch" in the firmware, but it was annoying as hell.
