Hi everyone, I'm new to play station 3 but I love online gaming, I also love watching movies but what I want to know is. Can I install showtime/navi-x on my ps3 slim & still be able to receive updates from playstation, access psn & online gaming? I don't want to install showtime/navi-x & lose the ability to upgrade & play online.
its really weird that since the navi-x plugin was released 180upload and billionupload links do not work till today. and searching the internet i haven't found the answer to this problem as 95% of the links are from these hosts !!! or is it a issue i am having ?? i hope some of you can help.
I always have issues with Showtime. Some upgrades ago I lost the tiled view and I got the list view with no icons for everything, besides all the channels I pinned down in the home page disappeared.
This last update was great at first, I received a notification for a new version from inside the application, it downloaded and installed fine and all the bugs went away: the change views option returned and I got the lost channels back.
It is an excellent version... but after close it, every time I try to launch Showtime again I receive an error message. It runs fine from inside Multiman. I will try to delete it an reinstall it from scratch.
Integration with thetvdb.com
Chapter support for movies

Fix the oversized album art during music playback
ps3: Fix video stuttering in some high bitrate video streams
Fix broken date-sorting (Allow user to sort on newest or oldest first)

This allows us to pick subtitles that are out of sync with video stream. Also makes it possible to do negative subtitle time shifting for embedded subs
ps3: Increase audio buffer size
Fix stuttering playback with some audio formats (APE is one)
Fix problem that caused picture stuttering in some movies after 20-25 minutes
Add support for LPCM in DVD playback

Add support for subtitle plugins
This also removes the built-in support for opensubtitles.
Opensubtitles is now available as a plugin. No username + password is needed as opensubtitles.org allows anonymous logins
The list of subtitles are now sorted based on user preferred languages
Fix a bug that made "Custom query" impossible to erase in the metadata editor. It would come back next time the item was scanned
Fix a crash that was caused by invalid markup tags in SRT files
Typically this would happen if the SRT file contained a subtitle entry with just one tag that was invalid. Now such invalid tags will be
presented as normal text instead.
ps3: Fix a crash on PS3 when playing AAC HEv2 files
This was caused by too small stack for the threads
Fix recently introduced crash in opensubtitles.org module
Add stretch-to-widescreen and stretch-to-fullscreen as options during video playback

Allow user to adjust subtitle timing €10 minutes in increments of 0.5 seconds
Improved support for opensubtitles.org
Showtime will now search in opensubtitles.org database using the movie title and optionally the IMDB ID if it manages to resolve that
To limit the number of returned results it will only include the subtitles that matches the languages configured in Settings -> Languages.
If no such configuration has been entered all results will be displayed.
ps3: Sign pkg files to work with 4.xx CFW
Fix some issues related to mono audio in videos
Use external metadata (TMDB, etc) for video title in video OSD
Avoid doing external metadata lookup for very short file names
Add support for playback of HLS (Http Live Streaming) URLs
Add support for user configurable fonts
To install and use a new font put the font someplace where Showtime can browse it. When clicking on the font Showtime will what you want to use the font for. Showtime will copy the font to an internal storage location.
To select between installed fonts or to reset to default, go to Settings -> Look and Feel -> Fonts
