    I think 2.52 and 2.53 firmware are combined in a way, i could be wrong though but it kinda seems that way.

    Sony's updater that consoles update using is still only at 2.52 here: [Register or Login to view links]

    Code:
    # US
    Dest=84;CompatibleSystemSoftwareVersion=2.5200-;
    Dest=84;ImageVersion=00005ecb;SystemSoftwareVersion=2.5200;CDN=http://dus01.ps3.update.playstation.net/update/ps3/image/us/2008_1105_e9cd7c268667ee695a708bf00c6853d8/PS3UPDAT.PUP;CDN_Timeout=30;
    I don't see how that is possible... unless perhaps you got a new game that included the 2.53 update on the disc and updated that way.

    Still far from being a MEDIA CENTER replacement.

    > NO SUBTITLE SUPPORT on video files (e.g. AVI, M2TS, etc...). Still hoping to watch on my PS3 japanese animes that I rip to my PC's hard drive...

    > NO MKV SUPPORT !!! Jeeez !!!!! I know it's not a standard my the strict meaning, but ripping in MKV is the rule now. (I could remux to M2TS though but it has limitations..)

    Well The only reason i say I have 2.53 because I have been able to see when people last logged on, and my video settings didn't say BD/DVD. It's been like that for a month. I remember it either saying 2.52 or 2.53. But I believe it said 2.53. I don't know why though. Anyway I can check what firmware I'm on?

    Edit: I checked It says 2.52, But I have all the features of 2.53.
