    I emailed Sony, no answer yet. It is not mentioned on the firmware update list. But, the screwy thing is, it is listed in the product features on the bluray model page. Then when you download the manual, it clearly states that it does not. So a firmware update is going to have to be made available by the end of October to match the advertisement.

    Well, I just found the PDF file for region 2 that showed the firmware update. All of the BD-r/e modes are disabled.
    No luck on this update.

    Do you know if the new firmware update for the 300 or 301 will allow BDMV

    Many thanks,

    It takes about 30 minutes or so to update, your main concern is power interuption, if that happen during the update, you might have problems.
    Follow the link on Jerry's post, they have some intructions for update.

    Hi guys. I have the original BluRay Sony disc player. So far none of the BluRay discs which friends have sent me that they themselves made (from EDIUS and PPro), will play on it. Do any of you know if any of the mainstream BD players (home theater units) will yet play the BD discs we make. Otherwise, I guess we're just making them for ourselves for archives, yes? And I don't want to spend the money on a BD disc recorder until the discs are useful on others' systems. I'm still archiving back to HDV.

    Shades of the first "recordable" CD's!

    Thanks,
    Alan

    Great thread here.

    This is difficult stuff as a missed setting along the way can really impact your final product.

    The PS3 and some other Blu-ray players will automatic detect what the display can accept though HDMI and will output accordingly, if it detect that the display can not use 24P it will output 60i, that is why it confused alot of people, to be sure, read the manual of the display or "force 24P output", if the display can not do 24P you will not see a picture, it is not the display that is converting 24P to 60i, it is the player that is doing the converting.

    Which brings me to another point - when creating Bluryas of my own, 25P? 50P? Yes? Being in a PAL region?

    I dunno myself, seing as 25P is not Blu-ray stream and 50P is only for 720 I reakon.

    If i get a XDCAMEX and shoot at 1920 x 1080 25P - what would i do with it.
