It doesn't have a SCART output, so you would need a converter, and they aren't cheap.
Given that Sony are no longer making the USB Wi-fi adapter for this despite the model only being a year old can anyone suggest an alternative adapter? 28 Jan 2014
Hi, I tend to avoid buying device-specific Wi-Fi adapters anyway, as they're usually quite expensive and don't offer much flexibility. I prefer to buy a generic "wireless bridge" adapter and just connect it to specific devices using short network cables. I can highly recommend the Netgear WNCE4004 N900 Wi-Fi adapter - my Sony BDPS4100 has been connected to it for months and I've never had any problems. It gives a totally stable and reliable high-speed connection. I regularly use this for streaming HD video from Netflix and it's great. Check out my review for further details: http://www.amazon.co.uk/review/R1GQZXZALWZN3S/ Hope this helps, Ian

1. Can I play DVD with this blue-ray disc player ? 2. Is it possible to access some online TV services via this player? 23 Jan 2014
Yes you can play DVD's on this machine. You can access the internet with this machine but only through a connected ethernet cable as it NOT Wi-Fi.
Does it have any internet browser? 2 Feb 2014
Yes, it does. The only thing to bear in mind is that it is very difficult to use with the remote (or the TV sideview feature), and the system does not allow you to use a cordless mouse. Also, the browser does not open many web sites properly. But let's face it, the blu ray player is not a computer. This is an added feature but of course has limited capability.
