    Official Playstation 3 Blu-Ray player Thread

    I've got 3.01 and am suffering freezing during Blu-Rays and Games. Hope it's a firmware issue. My son says the last two upgrades have had issues.

    Downfalls Of Using Ps3 For Bluray?***

    I would have to agree with full bit rate lossy tracks kicking A. Had to push several items back on the shelf after a week-end of Hellboy II, Tropic Thunder, and Wanted. Just plain ol' DD and DTS at -20dB!

    Downfalls Of Using Ps3 For Bluray?***

    We've had the PS3 almost a year now and just love it. The media hub, and ability to do wireless updates are really cool. We purchased the PS3 as a BR player, but have gotten into games over the last year. Blockbuster 5 day rentals with a 5 day grace period gives you the time to finish most...

    Halloween Costumes?

    A good timely couples costume is Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. I think a classic couples costume is one dresses with camo on the top, the other camo on the bottom and you are an upper and lower GI.

    Palm device to Blackberry

    iTunes syncs to Blackberry? That could be a game changer. I don't have an Outlook account, will that effect results?

    Palm device to Blackberry

    Anyone make the Palm OS device to Blackberry jump? It looks like it's possible to migrate the contact/calender data from the Blackberry website, but wonder if it works as advertised. I currently have a Palm Tungsten E and am considering the Blackberry Curve.

    Pssst, howdja like to win a copy of Discovery & Image 'When we left Earth' on Blu?

    John Glenn Had the GI Joe Mercury capsule that came with the shiny silver suit and helmet that actually plugged into the capsule! I played the red plastic 45 of audio from the Friendship 7 mission over and over till I could recite it from memory. “The clock is operating, and I feel fine.”

    On-Line Multiplayer Question

    Not sure about the scores being recorded, but I believe that the name you log on as when the PS3 boots up is the name you "play" under, regardless of game.

    Your first real "Wow" moment with BD

    Cars. Like others have said, it "jumps" off the screen. Still working on upgrading to HDMI for audio. This thread has me thinking about budget bustin' Damn, should have never started.

    On-Line Multiplayer Question

    Thanks to the reassurance gained here, I’ve made the dive into on-line play several times. Although I left every time utterly humiliated, I did enjoy it . Back to Arcade Mode to for more “work outs”.

    On-Line Multiplayer Question

    Thanks for the replies everyone. Another question, I've never gone online with the PS3 for gaming, will I be playing other PS3ers or are the servers set up to accept CoD4 players regardless of platform?

    On-Line Multiplayer Question

    I'm new to console gaming and never thought I'd like the "shoot/carve 'em ups" till I received Assassin's Creed (PS3) for my birthday. I've just finished that and I'm kind of hooked. I purchased Call of Duty 4 and was wondering if it would be a waste of time after I finish that one to explore...

    Advice needed for website images & DSLR

    Don't know if this is still an active thread or not, but I assume you are scaling your images down to upload to the web. A 10 or 12 MP camera is way overkill for the web, and even for all but the most demanding large print jobs IMHO. Do you have specifics about the Cybershot you don't like?

    PS3 or Sony S550--audio gratification now or later

    Hi Paul, I was in a similar situation at the start of the year. I’ve got a decent mid-range system in our basement (55’ Sony, Denon, and Klipsch 7.1). Original plan was to wait for a good BluRay player with analog outs so I could keep the Denon that I’m very happy with. My DVD purchasing had...

    PS3 DTS-HD update available

    Me too Robert. Maybe Sony had the right idea after all :0 I wasn’t into gaming at all prior to picking up the PS3. I received Assassins Creed for my birthday and despite the poor reviews have been enjoying coming home from work, havin’ a bite, and sitting down for a little “killin’ time”. I...

    PS3 DTS-HD update available

    Aw crap! Knew I shouldn't have opened this thread. Now I'm going to have to figure out a way to replace my non-HDMI Denon sooner than planned. Thanks guys, NOT :D

    What is Your Single Favorite Thing About Blu-ray (or Other HD) Playback?

    And I thought I was the only dork that noticed this! I would echo the rest of the comments eventhough I'm still saving up for a 7.1 HDMI receiver (optical now) to soak in all the HD audio goodness!

    Blu-ray Review HTF BLU-RAY REVIEW: Walk Hard The Dewey Cox Story

    Really looking forward to buying this one. High "re-watchability" on the other Apatow titles, sounds like Walk Hard as well. Thanks Richard.

    Justice Dept. approves XM/Sirius Merger!

    I've owned my '08 Honda, w/XM, about 120 days. That means I've had my actual paid for subscription about 30 days. I read somewhere that the FCC would likely approve the merger, but force the parties to make sure it doesn't "obsolete" any of the current radios. Hope so since it's all a tight...

    M. Night Shyamalan's "Signs" (Blu-ray)

    Me too Southpaw. I remember being disappointed at the lack of extras and DTS when compared to other Dual Disc Vista Series Releases from M. Night.

    Wanting to go Blu Ray

    Hi Robert, I've got a 3 year old set up close to yours; Denon 2805, Sony KDF-55WF655 (w/HDMI), and 7.1 Klipsch on the speaker end. I’d gone round and round for almost a year and finally took the plunge with the PS3 about a month ago. My philosophy was like yours, jump in now and move the PS3...
