Blu-ray Disc Features: Get the Most Out of Your Player
What is BD-LIVE™?
BD-LIVE™ technology brings the power of the Internet to your Blu-ray Disc™ player. This technology lets
you access additional content via the Internet, including upcoming movie previews and exclusive special
features, live events, peer-to-peer interactions, ring-tone/wallpaper downloads, and more. To use this
feature, follow the steps below:
1)Prepare a BD-ROM that is BD-LIVE™-enabled. Check your media, since this feature should be called out
on the packaging.
2)Connect your player to a high-speed internet connection (using the LAN (100) terminal).
3)Insert a USB flash memory (not supplied) into the EXT slot. If you insert this memory while a disc is in
the tray of the player, you will need to open and close the disc tray before the player will recognize the
memory and the EXT indicator lights up in the front panel display.
HDMI™ Cable and 1080p High-definition Video
To get the most out of your Blu-ray Disc™ player (including 1080p high definition video from Blu-ray Disc
media), you must connect your player directly to your TV (or through your home audio system to your
TV) with an HDMI™ cable (not supplied). Your TV must also support 1080p high-definition video.
Certain circumstances may limit/prevent Blu-ray Disc media or DVD playback.
Call 1-866-909-7669 and request an update disc and update instructions for your player.
We recommend that when you first get your Blu-ray Disc™ player, you register it at www.esupport.sony.
