The BDX3100KB product is designed to playback Blu-ray discs that comply with the 3D specifications of the Blu-ray Disc Association. It is not compatible with other 3D specifications. 3D capable display, 3D eyewear and High Speed HDMI cable (all sold separately) required for playback and viewing 3D content.
This product does not play HD DVDs. For HD playback, Blu-ray discs with HD content are required. To play high-definition content, an HDCP-ready DVI or HDMI interface on your TV may be necessary. The performance of interactive and/or network features can vary depending on disc design and content, and may require a constant broadband internet connection. A firmware update may be necessary as well for some interactive and/or network features. Some features may require additional bandwidth.
When using BD-Live™, certain content and services may require a USB stick with at least 1GB storage capacity to be inserted in the player‟s USB port. BD-Live content and services are provided by third-party suppliers and may be subject to change without notice. Toshiba makes no warranties, statements or assurances with regard to the content, availability or functionality of third-party content or services.
MKV (Matroska Video Container) is an open standard free container format, a file format that can hold an unlimited number of video, audio and subtitle tracks inside a single file. This product is able to support only a fraction of all video, audio and subtitles formats which could be used to create a MKV file. Please refer to the owner‟s manual for the list of formats supported.
As Blu-ray is a format that uses new technologies and a specific type of data storage medium, problems with the digital connection, compatibility and/or performance are possible. If you experience problems of this sort, please see www.toshiba.eu for further information on the availability of firmware updates that might solve your problem, or contact the Toshiba Service Hotline.
Some features will become available with some delay. A 1080p-ready TV is required to play back 1080p content. The Deep Color feature as specified by HDMI 1.3a requires a compatible Deep-Color-capable HD display and/or device.
The use of REGZA-LINK®, a feature based on HDMI-CEC, requires an HDMI-CEC-compatible TV set. Depending on the specifications of your TV set, some or all of the REGZA-LINK® functions may not work – even if your TV is HDMI-CEC-compatible.
