Updating firmware on sony blu ray player
I also installed Kodi under Windows 10 on my main PC to experiment and see what add-ons will work for me.The Q10Pro will update its library via UPn P from my PC using the local network (when set).I had a long list of minimum requirements that was not being met (I have refrained from posting this list!! I finally found a thread on the Kodi forum where a very kind and dedicated person had done all the hard work, impartially testing various media players, NUC’s and Raspberry Pi’s and then completing highly comprehensive comparisons between them (and meeting all of my list pre-requisites); The Kodi thread clearly showed why I should dismiss the many “dubious” claims of most System On Chip media players I had been checking out (and nearly purchased).I ended up deciding to purchase a Hi Media Q10 Pro from an e Bay retailer in Oz.Set Up Power Connection Blu Ray Settings Blu Ray Network Update Blu Ray Update Notifications Community Q&A Sony Blu Ray players are designed to be updated frequently with the newest programming, called "firmware."
