To quote: This is the last release (by me) before setting the 3.0 stamp. Hopefully there are no serious issues lurking and if so I hope to be able to release 3.0 in a couple of days.

I know there is still alot of bugs (although not as many as I would expect, to be honest) to be squashed and a lot more features to be implemented.

On top of this I have a lot more ideas in my head for stuff I would like to add. But as always, time is a limiting factor.

A list of changes since 2.99.401 release:

  • Popup menu redesigned a bit
  • Add support for Windows 1251 codepage
  • upnp: Make sure that we really find subtitles when doing a blind probe. This bug has caused problems for some people making some video not start at all.
  • Make it possible to enter credentials in the auth popup that is not saved to disk
  • Add support for passing mimetypes internally. This speed up media loading and playback start.
  • PS3: Update XMB icon (better centered)
  • Make SRT subtitle discovery better
  • Add support for setting subtitle output delay
  • Add seek-by-thumbnail in the command popup menu (looks very bad on PS3 at the moment though)
  • ui: Redesign the auth popup
  • Improve the setting views
  • PS3: Add support for BD remote
  • Add support for cycling between audio and subtitle tracks using a single button
  • Make presentation of audio and subtitle tracks better
  • Improve subtitle rendering. There is a lot of changes here. see bc0cf58e and 76142920
  • PS3: Display all reasonable entries found in system VFS root as services on their own
  • PS3: If display operates in non-square pixel 16:9 mode, scale UI accordingly
  • Use libav.org's recently released 0.7 version (with a couple of bug fixes on top)

Short answer NO. You need CFW and will get banned if you play online.

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.

Please let me know. Thank you.

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.
