Updating sony blu ray player dating by corespondence
Your home server will appear as a media option in the Player automatically, so finding your media is simple and quick.Just a reminder: USB storage that’s already been formatted as extended storage for your PS4 can only be used to save games and apps — it can’t be used to save and play videos.For those of you that own Play Station VR in addition to PS4 Pro, Media Player will also update to support playback of 4K VR video content.PS VR’s display resolution is 1920 X RGB X 1080, so 4K VR videos will be displayed in a higher image quality compared to HD VR videos.In order to install a firmware update in this fashion, the device (usually most Blu-ray Disc Players, Network Media Player/Extender, Internet-Enabled TV, or Network capable Home Theater Receiver with a built-in network connection) is able to access and download the needed update directly from a special website file created by the product manufacturer.
If you're not sure, it's easy to check which version of firmware you have: We recommend this method as it's the simplest way to update. First set up the equipment, then download the update over the internet to your Blu-ray player.
Writer, Bill Hunt, claims that industry sources have passed on information that this was a deliberate move by Sony due to the fact that it has a 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray player launching in 2017.
If the PS4 Pro launched being UHD-compatible it would affect sales, he claims.“Our industry sources tell us that Sony Consumer Electronics doesn’t want a UHD-capable Play Station 4 Pro to undercut sales of its forthcoming set-top 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player, which is expected in early 2017 and the prototype of which was on display at the IFA consumer electronics trade show in Berlin last week," writes Bill.
As consumer electronics get more complicated and technology changes quickly, the need to keep a product up-to-date, especially in home theater applications, has gotten more critical. In PCs, firmware is usually a program that is actually embedded in a hardware chip.
Instead of facing buying a new component periodically to keep up with the pace of change, engineers have developed a way to keep pace with technology changes by making products that can be updated with new features, without the consumer having to buy a new product. This provides the chip (sometimes referred to as a controller chip) with specific instructions to control different aspects of the PC, without the danger of being altered by other software changes.
Starting later today, the Media Player app is getting an update to support 4K video playback on PS4 Pro.
