There are two ways to upgrade the Blu-ray Disc/DVD Home Theatre System firmware:
If you have questions or require assistance, please contact Sony Support at 1-866-909-SONY (7669).
The Network Upgrade operation is straightforward. Sony highly recommends that you use the Network Upgrade method to upgrade the Blu-ray Disc/DVD Home Theatre System firmware.
