Nope. Just a Windows PC and a USB stick.

Even though the site says it can work on a Mac, I couldn’t get it to work.

I did the first update a few months back 8.001 to 8.004 which fixed the AppleTV HDR sync issue.

For that I was able to use my MacBook Pro in BootCamp running Windows to format a USB stick and copied the files over.

For this latest update even the BootCamp method didn’t work. So I had a spare Windows HTPC which I no longer use - got it hooked up and did the downloading and copying of the files.

This is from the UK site - but it was sent from the local Sony rep in Australia so I reckon the upgrade is for all 760ES not just the UK ones.

Thanks for the update...I believed the image quality must be very good now. If only Sony can implement what JVC did for their N series...Frame Adapt HDR (JVC proprietary DTM).

I think Sony is considering that. Personally I’m happy if players like Panasonic can do that.
