images until the discomfort ends; consult a doctor if
you believe necessary. You should also review (i)
the instruction manual and/or the caution message
of any other device used with, or streaming contents

communication, this player supports various
security functions. Be sure to correctly
configure the security settings in accordance
with your network environment.
No Security
Although you can easily make settings,
anyone can intercept wireless
communication or intrude into your wireless
network, even without any sophisticated
tools. Keep in mind that there is a risk of
unauthorized access or interception of data.
