Default Sony S300 - firmware?

I may come off as an idiot, but how exactly does one get a firmware disk from Sony? On the bluray.com site, there only seems to be a link to actually download it to your computer.

I have the BDPS300 too. I have yet to receive a disc from Sony to update my player. I've had my unit for roughly 3 months now.

You're better off DL'ng the update and installing it that way. The newest firmware is version 3.70

On the canadian d/l site theres also a customer support phone number to get them mailed to you. I imagine the american site will have this too.

About midway down the page there will be a link to order the firmware update on cd via mail. I believe it will ask for the serial number of your unit on the following page along with your mailing address.

Hope that helps!

They always mail mine within 24 hours, and I receive them within a week. Sony service beats the hell out of Samsung.

I would try calling them or filling out that form again. I submitted a request via that link last Thursday and received my update disc yesterday.

2.0 movies? Yes, but you will not have access to certain extra features such as PiP, etc. With firmware updates you will be able to continue enjoying watching the film and its' supplements. Just not interactivity. Someone more knowledgeable and fair minded will explain more.
