Here is some more info... still waiting for the US site though:
Updates for new firmware 1.30
You can now go to accessories/bluetooth device and register the remote
control for movies (once it comes out...).
-You can now manually select how you want your BluRay/DVD's displayed
via the HDMI... Automatic, RGB, or Y Pb/Cb Pr/Cr. Personally don't know
what the difference is.
Question: is Y Pb/Cb Pr/Cr better? What is this and what does it mean?
-You can now use an external hard drive to back up your PS3's hard
drive in case you need to restore the system later. Guessing you can
connect via the USB.
-You can now totally reformat your PS3's hard drive (or maybe a new
harddrive your installing, or do a "quick format" that leaves important
-The PS3 now selects the HIGHEST output possible for your TV and
displays in that right off the bat. For example, when you would select auto,
it would only set the TV to 720p instead of its max 1080i.
On certian games people with the older HDTV's that only support 1080i
can play games in HD because of this fix. RR7 and Marvel: UA will now
play in 1080i, but unfortunitly games like Resistence which only supports
720p and 480p wont. It gives you a message when you start up the game
that the highest resolution that Resistence supports is 720p. Hopefully
Insomnaic adds an update in the future which allows 1080i.
SPEAKING OF UPDATES:
Just wondering has anyone tried editing thier extendedOS.self and booting it as thier "OtherOS"?
I suppose it might have some lead hex that can be compared and launched to determine if it is eventually possible that the RSX and 7th core is reachable through "OtherOS" or if it's limited when you switch to "OtherOS" (Like how you can't turn the system on wirelessly while set in "OtherOS")
