Blu-ray firmware resource

Blu-ray Disc logoLet’s face it, updating firmware is a pain. With Blu-ray Disc players, firmware updates have become even more oppressive. It is not uncommon for a manufacturer to release a firmware update before their players even hit store shelves. With practically every Fox Home Entertainment release, like Avatar for example, many players have to be updated just for the one movie.

Fortunately, the Blu-ray Disc Association has teamed up with the manufacturers to provide a resource to find the latest updates for your player. Visit http://www.blu-raydisc.com//en/technical/updates/en.html and find your player to see if you could use an update, and for instructions on how to do this.

Not every manufacturer is listed yet, so hopefully this will grow. Better yet, let’s hope we can get rid of painful firmware updates altogether.
