We wanted to watch a blue ray movie and it says we have to renew the encryption key, but our PS3 is not connected to the internet. Are we still able to renew it? Thanks!

The only way to renew the encryption key is, unfortunately, to connect to the internet. Sorry.

Sony does offer a way to update the firmware on the PS3 without directly downloading the latest firmware on the PS3. That is to download the latest software update from Sony PS3's official site and installing it on the PS3.

I don't think you'd be able to renew the encryption key without connecting to the Internet. Maybe you can try ripping your Blu-ray movie to MP4. That way you can transfer the MP4 video to a flash drive and watch the movie on your PS3 as PS3 can directly play MP4 video from a USB drive. In case you need, you can check out how to rip Blu-ray to MP4 here: How to Rip and Convert Blu ray to MP4 with Blu ray to MP4 Converter

Some newer blu ray discs require that your system be updated to view the movie. This is due to a security "encryption" set by various movie companies. (they are trying to prevent people from copying their movies).
If your PS3 is connected to the internet this should be done automatically when trying to view the movie.
hope it helps
~good luck!

How to perform system software update to renew encryption key on my playststion 3


You may have to renew the AACS encryption key to play content such as movies on commercially available BD video software (BD-ROM). If a message indicating that the encryption key needs to be renewed is displayed, update the system software to the latest version. The encryption key will then be automatically renewed.
AACS (Advanced Access Control System) is a copyright-protection technology that is used on Blu-ray Discs. The copyrighted content is protected by setting an encryption key on both the disc and the device used to play the disc.
An AACS encryption key expires in 12 to 18 months and must be renewed. There may also be other times when the key has to be renewed. in the manual

How do i do this to play this bd, you must renew the encryption key. perform a system software update to renew the encryption key.


Do you know if your PS3 has been updated to the most current firmware? In your XMB on your ps3 go to settings.. The very top option is system update. Click it and it will ask you to select a method. Update via internet. Go through this you should be good to go. Sometimes the key just has to be renewed, they usually expire 12-18 mos. Heres a link to the manual..

HOW DO I RENEW THE ENCRYPTION KEY ON MY PS3?...IT SAYS I HAVE TO DO THAT IN ORDER TO PLAY MY BLUE RAY DVD?


You'll need to upgrade your software to your ps3.

You can read about it here:

http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/2_60/video/aacs.html

Then on that page click on where it says "update the system software".

It will bring you to another page that shows you the different ways to update the software on your ps3.
