HDTV Bug in PS3 2.50 Firmware
PS3 currently incompatible with top-line Sony home
by Narayan Pattison, IGN AU
Australia, October 19, 2008 - Last week Sony released firmware 2.50 for the PS3. However, in a bizarre turn of events the latest firmware prevents the PS3 from displaying an image on some state-of-the-art Sony home theatres.
We installed firmware 2.50 yesterday only to be greeted by a blank screen. After much swearing and trouble-shooting we discovered it was the Sony amp/receiver that was incompatible with the new firmware. We were able to get a picture again by cutting the Sony amp out of the loop and going straight into the projector.
For the record the IGN AU PS3 setup includes a 7.1 Sony amp/receiver supporting 1080p over HDMI and a 1080p Sony projector. The fact that the new firmware renders the PS3 unusable with this top-line Sony home theatre is utterly boggling.
On a related note, while trouble-shooting the problem we hooked the PS3 up to the projector via composite and also found that it's currently only displaying a black and white image over this video signal. These are both quite serious bugs to sneak through with the latest firmware.
We contacted Sony Computer Entertainment Australia about when this issue will be addressed and they are currently looking into the problem. We'll update you as soon as we hear more.
Grasse risate insomma...
