Connecting your Sony® Blu-ray Disc™ player to your Wi-Fi
By clicking the CONFIRM button I accept the Terms and Conditions related to the migration from Linksys Cloud Manager 1.0 (LCM1) accessible via www.business.linksys.com to Linksys Cloud Manager 2.0 (LCM2) accessible via www.cloudmanager.linksys.com for all devices purchased with the LCM1 firmware including LAPAC1200C, LAPAC1750C, LAPAC2600C and all regional variations. Migrating from LCM1 to LCM2 provides for new functionality, but also changes and eliminates other features. Those that are comfortable with the functionality provided in LCM1 do not have to migrate but should know that Linksys will not be developing new functionality based on the LCM1 platform. Details of the changes are outlined below. Please read carefully before initiating firmware migration.
Important facts to be aware of before migrating:
Once Access Points are upgraded with the new LCM2 firmware, these Access Points cannot revert back to LCM1 firmware or be used with the LCM1 platform.
The firmware update is required for the Access Points to work with LCM2. Please make sure you are comfortable with the feature changes before migrating over.
Existing LCM1 users will need to create new accounts in LCM2 in order to use it. All LCM1 account information, including user profiles and network settings, will not be transferred to LCM2.
Linksys will continue to operate the LCM1 platform for the duration of the 5 year term offered, then end of life the service. Once Access Points are upgraded, this 5-year cloud license for LCM1 is replaced with the new license terms for LCM2.
Access Points upgraded to LCM2 firmware will have access to LCM2 for the lifetime of the product.
The migration to LCM2 brings new improvements over LCM1 which are listed here (Link to marketing document), but also changes and eliminates some functionality currently available in LCM1:
No Stand Alone Option
The AP will not provide the capability to be configured and managed as a stand-alone device (with exception of configuring connection parameters, i.e. IP address, subnet mask, gateway, VLAN). All management features will now be cloud based. Once configured, the AP can continue operating without a cloud connection, but a cloud connection will be required to make configuration changes.
No Historic Data
Data usage statistics of clients and APs will be real-time only – i.e., populating for the duration of the active cloud session. No historical statistics will be available, e.g. past 7 days, last 24 hours with the exception of online/offline status for devices.
Rogue AP Detection, Block Clients, Band Steering
Not included in LCM2 launch version. To be provided in future releases.

The Sony BDP-S3700 is part of the Blu-Ray Players test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, Blu-Ray Players models like the BDP-S3700 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
UHD picture quality The Ultra HD performance rating represents a composite observation of native 4K with and without high dynamic range settings from UHD Blu-ray disc sources.
HD picture quality HD picture quality indicates trained panelists' evaluation of clarity and color accuracy of a high-definition progessive-scan (1080p) signal. All signals were routed through an HDMI connection.
Ease of use Ease of use indicates how easy it is to use the controls on front panel and remote, and navigate through player's menu.
The Sony BDP-S1 is a first generation Blu-ray Disc (BD) player and is the first such player released in North America. It was originally scheduled for release in the United States on August 18, 2006 with a MSRP of $999.95. Sony had postponed the release date of this player several times and it was released on December 4, 2006.
On November 30, 2006 Sony announced that the player began shipping to major consumer electronics retailers and specialty dealers nationwide. It became available at retailers on December 2, 2006. The player has received firmware updates since its release, the most recent one being released in 2012.
The Sony BDP-S1 does not come with a built-in ethernet or Wi-Fi connection; therefore it has no online capabilities. However, firmwareupgrades may be applied by downloading the upgrade and burning them onto a recordable or rewritable DVD and loading it on the player for installation. As of December 2020, the latest firmware release for the BDP-S1 is version 6.10, which was released on April 11, 2012. The update improves BD-Java compatibility to enhance interactivity with some BD-ROMs, adds compatibility with BD-R/RE discs burned by the Click to Disc™ and Click to Disc™ Editor software included with some VAIO® computers, adds Dolby® TrueHD and Dolby Digital Plus Audio decoding functionality, enhanced playback compatibility with certain BD-ROM format discs, enhanced customer support capability, compatibility with the BD-R/RE format (BDMV), and corrects the output signal status information for audio output and display when Linear PCM 5.1 channel soundtracks are played via HDMI.
During its initial release, there were reported issues with certain BD-ROM movie discs, namely BD-J functionality. The discs played incorrectly or would not play at all. Sony resolved this issue with a firmware update and the player is now compatible with all BD-J standard discs once upgraded to it.
Audio decoding capability
The player is capable of decoding Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus,[a]Dolby TrueHD,[a]LPCM, and DTS core. Currently, the player is not capable of decoding DTS-HD High Resolution Audio or DTS-HD Master Audio.
Audio and video output
Audio is sent out of the player through TOSLINK, HDMI, or composite 5.1 analog surround sound jacks. The player will gives the option to output Dolby Digital or DTS via the Toslink (optical or coax), or selectively downmix either independently to PCM. However the digital output is not necessarily compatible with other surround system decoders. Even standard DVD soundtracks cannot be guaranteed to be correctly decoded by Toslink input equipped decoders. There is a disclaimer in the supplied owners manual to this effect. The player will save the user's selections allowing for customization of your outputs. The supplied HDMI connection is version 1.2 and does not support Deep Color or Bitstream out for Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD and DTS-HD Master Audio. This feature is not capable of being added later.
The BDP-S1's analog and component video outputs differentiate it from most Blu-ray Disc players manufactured after the early 2010s, as all Blu-ray Disc players manufactured after 2013 no longer come equipped with analog or component video outputs in order to deter video piracy.
The BDP-S1, being one of the earliest of the first generation Blu-ray Disc players, has much longer load times than later model BD players, around two to three minutes from the initial system power up to actual video playback. When the unit is fully powered up, playback is faster, taking approximately fifty to seventy seconds from disc insertion. However, this is not as fast as the PlayStation 3. Loading times are improved from the original version when updated to later firmware versions.
DVD-Audio, SACD, and Compact Disc playback
The player is not compatible with any audio disc format, as a BD-only drive is used. However, playback of Compact Discs (CD) is possible when using the Asia-Pacific version of the BDP-S1, known as the BDP-S1E. A re-branded derivative version of the BDP-S1E with CD playback capability was later released in North American region, with the model number, BDP-S2000ES.

Even in the streaming age, there are some good reasons to watch movies on the humble Blu-ray player. A hardware player offers the best image and sound quality available, thanks to the enhanced storage capacities of Blu-ray discs. There are two types of Blu-ray disc options available: 4K UHD Blu-ray and 1080p Blu-ray. Both are a step up from a traditional DVD player, but getting a 4K player will let you play both kinds of Blu-rays and give you access to formats like Dolby Atmos, Dolby Vision, DTS:X and HDR10. Even better, all of them will play your DVD and CD collections, too. Streaming problems like dropouts, bandwidth caps or buffering are nonexistent. But if you somehow want those, most of the best Blu-ray players options can also support streaming apps such as Netflix (some even in 4K) and Hulu.
Current gaming consoles like the high-end PS5 and the Xbox Series X can play both Blu-rays and 4K Blu-rays, in addition to the latest games. Plus, if you don't have a 4K TV and a library of only regular Blu-rays, you can save money by buying a 1080p-only player like the Sony BDP-S3700.

Best Xbox for Blu-ray movies
Xbox Series XAndrew Hoyle/CNET
You'll have a hard time getting your hands on the Xbox Series X until later this year due to insatiable demand, but keep checking back on restock updates. This is the only current Xbox model that accepts optical discs. It can play DVDs, Blu-rays and 4K Blu-rays, in addition to Xbox game discs. It can also be used with standard IR remotes, unlike the PS5. (The cheaper Xbox Series S does not have a disc slot.)
