Quick fix: Sony Bravia KDL-46EX402 TV Firmware Update Problem

Note: The problem and solution(s) described in this article are related to the Sony Bravia KDL-46EX402 television, but they may affect other televisions in the Sony Bravia line.


Introduction

I have a Sony Bravia KDL-46EX402 TV that after a couple of years of operation I decided to upgrade it to the latest firmware that I found on the official web site. In the Downloads section I found the latest firmware:
M8.728 - 08/11/2011
The update went smoothly and a couple of minutes later my TV was running the latest (2 years old) firmware.

Upgrading the Hard Disk in a Verbatim Gigabit NAS External Hard Drive

The disk that used to be in it can be used for some other purpose (to be determined at a later time).
