Updating s300 blu ray

EXE, so I clicked the Browse button and selected ~/tmp/bluray.

Sony’s BDP-S300 at 9 has sparked a fair amount of interest among those who have, thus far, remained on the sidelines of the hi-def disc battle.

Updating s300 blu ray

The Sony BDP-S300 is certainly a step in the right direction in terms of price, but enthusiasts will note that sacrifices have been made.

There are some minor video quality performance issues, some major load-time performance issues, no SACD playback, and no decoding for high-resolution soundtrack formats like Dolby True HD or DTS-HD Master Audio.

Models : KDL-32S5100, KDL-32XBR9, KDL-40S5100, KDL-40SL150, KDL-40V5100, KDL-46S5100, KDL-46V5100, KDL-52S5100, KDL-52V5100.

April 15, 2011 BDP-S1 Firmware Update November 10, 2011.

The player outputs at resolutions up to 1080p/24 1.1 and supports x.v.color.

Of course as with any other new piece of gear, we’re just as, if not more, interested in how the unit operates as much as its specifications. The BDP-S300 is a bit slimmer than its predecessor (the BDP-S1) and the overall design is pleasing enough, with one notable exception.They also don’t appear to realize that they could make the same file available as a plain ISO file and ANYONE with ANY OS with an ISO CD-burning software package and a CD-ROM burner (pretty much every personal computer made in the last 15 years) could make a CD-ROM from the file.I have no Windows box at the moment, I do most everything on Linux, so after firing off a customer feedback letter to Sony slamming them for their short-sightedness I went ahead and clicked the pull-down menu that tells their site that yes, I was using Windows 2000, please let me download the damn file, and I downloaded UPDATE_BDPS300_VER0450. After that it was a matter of typing: A pop-up box asked me where to put the files it was about to extract from UPDATE_BDPS300_VER0450. I fired up K3b, clicked on the left-side file menu tree to get to ~/tmp/bluray, double-clicked the UPDATE_BDPS300_VER0450. I stuck the CD-ROM in the Blu-ray player and about 15 minutes later the player spit the disc back out. Both have the software in an ISO CD-ROM image format, so you can burn a CD-ROM with the firmware, boot your Blu-ray player with the CD, and in 10 to 20 minutes the firmware has been upgraded. The firmware update process is even slower than the painfully, glacially slow disc load time for Sony Blu-ray players.) The only problem is that both sites compress the ISO file into a Windows-based EXE file!Apparently the people at Sony don’t realize that there are people out there with Macs, so Mac users are screwed.To learn more about Amazon Sponsored Products, click here.
