Did you know?

The Blu-ray Disc™ format is an evolving format. By keeping your firmware up to date, you will assist in

making sure that your Blu-ray Disc™ player works with features on the latest cutting-edge movie releases.

What is Firmware?

Firmware is the software within the Blu-ray Disc™ player that tells the player what to do and how to

operate. Much like a computer, Blu-ray Disc™ players sometimes need an update to support the latest


It‘s Easy to Update!

Sony occasionally updates firmware to help improve your player experience.

There are three different ways you can update the firmware in your Blu-ray Disc™ player:

Connect your player to a high-speed internet connection (using the LAN (100) terminal) and follow the

on-screen menu of the player in “Network Update” under “Setup.”

On your computer go to and enter in the model of your player. There will be

instructions how to download and install the update to your player.

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

com (click on “Register Product”) so that you can be alerted automatically if updates become available.
