PS3 Firmware 3.0 - No problems for me.

Post by mgillespie » Wed Sep 02, 2009 12:09 pm

I know a few people put off updating until they hear of others experiences (as you can't go back..).

Just wanted to say on my system that was working with firmware 2.,8x, moving to 3.0 caused no issues that I can see (tested video MPEG2, DivX, WMV9, VC-1, MPEG4 (H.264). Audio MP3, WMA, Photos JPG).

If anything it does seem faster streaming and navigating. And Firmware 3.0 has some really nice goodies in it too... :D :D

I can also confirm Firmware 3.0 (and now 3.0.1) works with Twonky 5.0.61.

The only annoying thing about firmware 3.0 (in my opinion) is that all the track names fade out after a few seconds, just leaving the one you are looking at highlighted. This is a PS3 problem however and no fault of Twonky. I don't seem to be able to find a setting to change it back.
