Engadget.com (linked above) has added to the list of 'hidden' updates PS3 Firmware 3.30 includes, noting both the addition of Remote Play from PC and supporting bitstream audio options.
To quote: "Additional trophy sorting and 3D gaming readiness should have been enough to satisfy and PS3 owner after the latest v3.30 system update (hey, at least it didn't take anything away this time) but there's a couple other surprises in store.
If you're the kind of person who loves (or hates) their beeps and bloops, there's a toggle for Bitstream Direct (output audio with the original digital signal prioritized) or Mix (mixed with sound effects such as button sounds and then converted to bitstream format) on Blu-ray movies, while future VAIO PC owners can get a taste of remote play without any PSP intermediary."

Anyone find a bypass to not update this frame ware i have a Fat 80gb ps3 and i don't want to update and have it fail on me. I have already had one Fat ps3 fail on me with no disc read error, but wasn't totally my fault it was a ps3 Sony sent to me because i thought my perfectly working ps3 was broken, but it wasn't!
Then i was stuck with a refurbished ps3 from Sony and they told me i couldn't get my original one back and i was pissed. So i decided to fix this ps3 with a fixshop on the net that put in a new disc drive and motor in my drive after i opened it and fiddled with it! It was out of warranty anyways!
I tried to clean it but ended it up messing it up a little. Oh well its fixed now like brand new and less than new console, but you see why i refuse to UPDATE -- Sony has Kill switches on frame ware updates on curtain ps3 i swear to god!
