Erratic Ps3 Control?


Recommended Posts

Who wouldve thought Id start so many PS3-related threads! Anyways, is anybody experiencing some "issues" like me on my PS3? Issues being, for example, when watching video that Ive copied over to the PS3's internal drive, every now an then the OSD pops up despite nobody touching the controller, or in one case the video rewinding? Not a problem per se, just wondering if this is an erratic bug from the recent update.

I have not had those issues yet Mark but I have experienced the HDMI drop out whilst watching a movie. This is something I have not experienced on my AE700 since I first bought it. Panasonic released a firmware fix for this about 3 years ago and I have never had a drop out since that time until now with the PS3. I am wondering if the 1.3 HDMI version on the PS3 is the cause of this?

You sure your wife or kids aren't hiding behind the lounge pressing random buttons, trying to make Dad think he's going nuts :blink: ?

Andrew.

btw, not had either of these problems.

As I have no kids, that would freak me out even more!

I have noticed that the controller shoulder buttons are very sensitive and when i have say moved on the couch or sat down the movie will start advancing at 10x speed or whatever cos the controller has moved slightly and send the command to the ps3. I have not had any issues with my HDMI connection though.

Try moving the controller away from where you are sitting....

I have only had one instance of HDMI drop out and that was playing 8 Below a Disney title. All other titles so far have not had any drop outs, however I have replayed 8 Below a few times since and I have not had a repeat of the drop out either. At this stage it is more likely a problem with the AE700 than the PS3 in this regard. As it has happened only once during many viewing hours I am not exactly stressing over it, my AE700 is due to be replaced in the next month or two with the new JVC HD1 1080P projector.

Well Mark, I was watching XXX last night and my PS3 paused itself for about 20 seconds then resumed playing. I thought may be the BR disc might be damaged so I went back and replayed the same section again and it played perfectly. I examined the disc but could not see any marks what so ever. So I guess I have now experienced the erratic behaviour that you have.

Did the pause icon show up in the bottom left corner of the screen?

NO Problems on mine, although as I stated previously it froze on me a few times while playing movie trailers and playing demo games.

However while playing games on disc and watching bluray movies(casino royale :blink:) no drop outs no rewinds, it's been perfect

this could simply be caused by yor R2 and L2 buttons catching on the ground or where ever you place your controller!

Quite possibly, as I only use the SIXARSE controller for media playback. As stated before, its really not a problem, just more of a observation.
