Notes on Copyrights
Because AACS (Advanced Access Content
System) is approved as content protection
system for BD format, similar to use of CSS
(Content Scramble System) for DVD format,
certain restrictions are imposed on playback,
analog signal output, etc., of AACS protected
contents. The operation of this product and
restrictions on this product may vary depending
on your time of purchase as those restrictions
may be adopted and/or changed by AACS after
the production of this product.
Furthermore, BD-ROM Mark and BD+ are
additionally used as content protection systems
for BD format, which imposes certain restrictions
including playback restrictions for BD-ROM Mark
and/or BD+ protected contents. To obtain
additional information on AACS, BD-ROM Mark,
BD+, or this product, please contact an
authorized Customer Service Center.
Many BD-ROM/DVD discs are encoded with
copy protection. Because of this, you should only
connect your player directly to your TV, not to a
VCR. Connecting to a VCR results in a distorted
picture from copy-protected discs.
