PS3 Firmware 3.30 Adds Remote Play & Bitstream Audio Options

700°
208w ago - A few days ago PS3 Firmware 3.30 was released, and aside from breaking PlayStation 3 consoles it was also reported to update the PS3 browser's Flash version and fix some region-free Blu-ray disc issues.

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."
 

Open Remote Play (ORP) v1.3 for the Nokia N900 Released

223w ago - Inspired by the recent Nokia N900 via BlueMaemo video, today kakarotoks has ported PS3 Open Remote Play (ORP) for the Nokia N900.

Download: Open Remote Play (ORP) v1.3 for Nokia N900

To quote: For those interested, here's a build of Open Remote Play running on the N900.

Just follow the instructions... I didn't bother creating a .deb, so just scp those files somewhere on your N900 (like /opt/orp) and run /opt/orp/orpui directly through xterm or using ssh.

It works, but it seems that the rendering with the SDL is extremely CPU hungry so it's slower than bearable, not usable at all actually... The UI also needs some work. I had to disable the bitrate setting in the profile edition page, because it didn't fit in the resolution of the screen, and there was no scrollbar, so it was impossible to save the ip address of the ps3.

The input key bindings also need to be changed since they refer to non existing keys on the N900 keyboard (F1/F2/F3/F4/Escape/etc..). I tried to take a screencast, but it didn't work...
 

Sony Ericsson's Satio & Aino Get Remote Play PS3 Feature

350°
255w ago - The upcoming Sony Ericsson model Aino, previously named Idou, and the Satio are said to include support for Sony Remote Play (not Open Remote Play) for playback of media stored on the PS3 console.

It also introduces Media Home, which automatically pulls media from Media Go on your pc over wifi when it is placed in its stand and will be available in three different colors.

To quote: Folks are already starting to get a look at production versions of the Sony Ericsson Satio and its baby sister, the Aino.

The Satio looks identical to its Idou doppelganger -albeit now in three colors instead of two- but the real news here is inside, where we're finally getting a look at Sony Ericsson's interpretation of Symbian^1 with a unique UI.

Overall, it's looking "chunky" (and we mean that in a good way) with an entirely finger-friendly presentation- a sharp, healthy departure from the UIQ platform that it just threw in the dumpster a few months back.

Though the Satio's higher end, it's actually the Aino that intrigues us more; in a way, this is the closest thing to a PSP phone...
