Good Evening,

I noticed the manual indicates the Ethernet port is for software updates and BD-Live. So does that mean I can update the TV's software and the list of STB's without a visit to the dealer. Unlike earlier BV7 versions.

Thanks, Beoaus.

No you can’t it’s only for dealer use as I had one before.

Thank you.

It’s just the Getting Started manual which is aimed at end users can be read to indicate something different. I’ll try to upload the picture.

It's just to do Blu-Ray Updates. On the Mk4 (and Mk3 with the Upgrade) you had to burn the update to a disc and then load it into the drive.

IIRC, on the Mk5 and Mk6, when going to do a Blu-Ray SW Update it gives you the option to upload the update by Disc, or Ethernet.

The first TV to directly update the TV Software from the internet was the BV11 / V1 / Avant Gen1 Platform.
