Updating firmware sony bdp s300
Usually players have only two analog audio outputs (left and right channels) to allow you to connect the player to CRT-based TVs, but this unit from Sony offers full 5.1 analog channels.We also wonder why this unit offers this option, since all home theater receivers, even the oldest ones, has at least one coaxial digital audio input.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.
The player has received firmware updates since its release, the most recent one being released in 2012.
