  • For details about DLNA, see (Settings) > (Network Settings) > [Media Server Connection] in this guide.
  • In rare instances, discs and other media may not operate properly when played on the PS3™ system. This is primarily due to variations in the manufacturing process or encoding of the software.
  • When audio from Super Audio CDs is output from the system's digital out (optical) connector, simple playback (playback at 44.1 kHz using 16 bits) occurs.


Super Audio CDs cannot be played on some PS3™ systems. For details, refer to [Types of Playable Discs].
