Living Room / Re: Renew Encryption Key for offline PS3
« on: April 13, 2012, 07:06 AM »
I have to ask, do either of you actually USE the Linux option on the PS3? What does it give you or what benefit does it provide? I have never understood the need for this "feature".
Personally yes. Not for entertainment use but as pure computational power-horse for some work projects. And that's what Sony widely advertized when they were releasing the PS3.
Yes I know, I bring work home ...
Maybe it is just me, but my PS3 does a great job of that already. Heck, that is the primary purpose of the one in our living room. It streams directly from our media server and various other sources.
Haven't you noticed how Sony with newer releases of firmwares more and more restricted the multimedia features? According to them to "enhance" user experience, but we all know it was because of the ease to play questionable INet downloaded content. Anyway, I don't want to start a debate. Let's stick to the topic of the thread - "Renew Encryption Key for offline PS3".
Cheers everyone.

3.55 is quite old actually. I believe that 4.11 or something is the most recent. But it's the last one that for certain is hackable and can allow a Linux installation. I hardly used PSN, bought just two games on-line. But certainly don't want to give-up on Linux ...
Anyway thanx for the quick reply.

When Sony decided to require all PS3 customers to lose advertised features by removing OtherOS if you update the system, my Dad decided he didn't want to update his PS3 anymore.

Just tonight we tried to watch a new Blue-Ray and it shows an error message saying that in order to watch the movie we need to renew the encryption key. And it says the way to do that is to perform a system update.
Hi, I'm in exactly the same boat. My (fat 40GB) PS3 is still on v3.15 for exactly the same reason. And just like you recently ran into a BD that needs updated AACS keys. It's just this single one (Showgirls) out of over 300.
Did you upgrade your firmware? To which version? All went OK? I ask because when 3.55 came out a lot of people (including the son a good friend of mine) lost BD play, both films as well as games. Sony always claimed it was never their cause. I certainly do not want to pay 150 euro for something that I am not in blame of - that's how much Sony charges in Europe to replace the BD drive.
I am really thinking in just buying a cheap stand-alone player.
