"The new firmware update 1.7 is live for the PlayStation 4 and brings a ton of new features such as an option to disable HDCP, export clips to USB and more."
AH this blinking problem is weird. I haven't tried it myself just yet (will do so in a bit) but I was getting that blinking when I was trying to bypass the HDCP protection using a splitter before this update. Hopefully I don't suffer from this. Sounds like isolated cases for now anyway.
I turned off HDCP, ive had no flickering or anything. Haven't seen anyone on the NeoGAF thread mention any flickering or black screens either either. Let's hope it stays isolated. One thing i have noticed though is that since updating, the whole UI seems even faster than it was before. Browsing my hundreds of pics, the PS store, the what's new page all loads instantly.
i have noticed things moving faster also, so far i havent had any issues while playing games so far so good.
i agree about the UI must be caching more or accessing faster , my list of games is pretty long and they are appearing much faster . thought they would be dimming the light a little more not much difference between normal and dim , might be a bigger difference in a really dark room
Either way proof or not, I never do these updates right away if I can help it. Let others beta test it for you. Don't be a victim
Want to confirm that personally it's all is a ok on my side, no issues! =)
To fix the flickering, go into the system’s Video Output settings and disable “Deep Color".
Ive had a really annoying problem trying to sign into PSN since the update. My ps4 takes about 5 minutes to login from start up, if i try to do it manually it boots me back to the dynamic boot screen and i have to logout to get functionality back. Im paranoid as hell now incase the system bricks on me.
set deep color to off that should fix it sony will of to send out a new update soon
So an isolated incident with no pics for proof. Smells rumorish.
Chill man, articles like these are helpful for ppl experiencing the issues, since they provided some workarounds
Not a rumor man. And turning the deep color off worked for the flicker. Thanks man!
there is also problems with the recording feature not saving all the recordings for me, i never had this problem before making vids. Also every time you go to your screen shot foler the system is taking a screen shot automatically. I also do not like how the streaming comments on twitch are all scrunched up on the right side now and the time stamp is on the bottom. should be the other way around. would make it easier to read again.
no problems here.
500GB External HDD not being detected. Guy probably has it formatted with NTFS instead of FAT32 or exFAT
What I was thinking too.
Exactly what I was thinking. Silly people not knowing how partitions and formatting file systems work...
Party chat is getting errors all over the place! Terrible
Everything is working for me.....
Yeah...PC's are so much more complex....
Yesterday I was playing Daylight, I unlocked a trophy, but my ps4 doesn't sync it and the Daylight trophy list doesn't appear among the others... When I try to sync the trophies I get this error code: (NP-32136-5)
Is this after you've installed the update as it was supposed to resolve that issue. Other way to fix it is as soon as you unlock another trophy, press the PS button, go into Notifications, select the trophy and it will open Trophies through that and sync properly
I've already tried this way, but unfortunately it doesn't work... :( Thanks anyways.
Same thing happenning to me, but instead my ps4 shuts down completely when i try to sync my trophies
This has worked for me twice now so it's disappointing it's not working for everyone. The option Sony offers is to reinitialize, revert the OS to it's factory settings and lose all downloads and saves whilst it formats the HDD. Other than that you would have to wait for another update that may or may not fix it like 1.7 was supposed to do.
Does Sony ever make firmware updates that don't have issues?
They sure do, considering I am having no problems with 1.7. Isolated incidents happen all the time, nice try though.
My HDMI connection would black out every 15 to 30 seconds after installing the update. The second Sony Support rep who talked to me had me switch from 1080P to 1080i. So far no blacking out. But I miss the crispness of 1080P. Sony needs to fix this update soon. I was playing games and watching Hulu in 1080P with no problems before yesterday's update.
Turn it back to 1080p. Go into video settings and turn off "deep color". I took the advice and it worked for me.
