Remember when watching a movie just meant putting it in your player and pressing play?
I hate this update firmwware rubbish, but as i'm using my ps3 its not such a hassle to do
That's exactly what I was thinking. All our "regular" DVDs play just fine, but to watch our blu rays we're apparently going to have to try this as well. All the advances in technology, yet it was easier to watch a movie from start to finish on my parents' VCR as a kid . This is probably a super stupid question, but how does one go about updating the firmware? I found the file I need on the company website, but do you need your BD player hooked up to the web to do it? Do you download the file to a disk, or am I just way off on how to do this. I used to consider myself somewhat tech "savvy", but I just don't keep up as well anymore.
After reading the last several posts on this issue, I decided I should probably check my Bluray player. I have a Pioneer Elite and they gave me a whole list of button mashing to do on my remote to check my firmware version. To make the actual update, they said to download the files to a computer and then burn them to a CD to put in the player. Not sure if this is the same for all players or not. I think I have an ethernet port on my player, but I would have the slightest clue on how to update that way. Burning a CD looks to be the easy way for me.
