mark for his password. He says he only sees the . @ /
marks in the onscreen keyboard but I just think he is missing something. Searched the manual but that was no help. ( i am not near him to be able to stop buy and don't want to change his Wifi password on the router)
Just tried fooling around with my BDP-S590, tell your dad when he needs a dash (-) from the onscreen keyboard to hit the blue key on the Sony remote, it will toggle the keyboard between alphanumeric and symbols. Red button for capital/lower case, Green button for Backspace, blue button for alphanumeric/symbol toggle.
If he has a USB computer keyboard, he may be able to use it on the front USB port of the BDP-BX59. I have a generic USB keyboard and it worked on my Sony BDP-S590. It might save him from having to change his wi-fi password. Good luck with it.
From the Sony BDPS590_BX59.pdf manual:
• Some USB devices may not work with this
• The player can recognize Mass Storage
Class (MSC) devices (such as flash memory
or an HDD), Still Image Capture Device
(SICD) class devices and 101 keyboard.
• To avoid data corruption or damage to the
USB memory or devices, turn off the player
when connecting or removing the USB
memory or devices.Edited by donebu - 1/21/13 at 10:19am
