hmm how would I go about updating the S350? i know there is a usb port on the back of it but I think it only fits the small compact usb flash keys? I don't have a lan cable long enough to get to the blu ray unfortunately. :mellow:

Be aware that the links above are for the BDP-S300 & S500 models. For the BDP-S350 there is a firmware update available which adds the BD-Live functionality, which if you cannot connect it to your internet connection via the ethernet port to use the network update feature, you can download the firmware from Sony Support and make an update disc as was the case for updating older models.

A further update for the BDP-S300 was released today. Version 4.30 corrects some playback issues with the latest discs, notably the latest Bond re-issues. It contains no new functionality and is available from the Sony US / Europe support sites.

A further update for the BDP-S300 has been released - version 4.40 corrects minor playback issues with some of the latest discs.

Euro version here

The BDP-S500 has had version 4.20 released and that is here for Europe.

The US support pages don't have these latest versions up yet but when they do the links from the previous post should still be valid to get the latest files.

I experienced a couple of lock ups on The Dark Knight on the S300 which were not major but which I'm hoping this fixes.
