    Something about enabling playback of AVC H.264 High Profile files. I couldn't find any details on other possible updates. I did read about a rumour of a major update coming for the XMB interface. But that is all it was.......a rumour.

    Firmware 1.90. Looks like a couple of good things. Not much for the blu ray side of things except it look slike the ability to force 1080p/24.

    Not sure what this is, but it doesn't sound like PS3 game upscaling to me [​IMG]

    Oh well, only a couple more months of this and I'll finally have a set that does 1080p, 1080i and 720p (current set only does 1080i and doesn't accept 720p so all of my 720p games are played at 480p).

    Wonder which will come first, my new TV set some time in September or a PS3 firmware which allows upscaling of PS3 games. They upscale PS2 games so I don't get what the holdup is...

    I am looking forward to the force 1080p/24.

    I really wish they would come out with the ability to autosync to displays on the fly. I have both a TV and projector hooked up with different resolution capabilities. Would be nice not to have to go into settings to change each time. Oh well, time to get a 1080p projector I guess!!! :)
