Mysterious PS3 DVD playback issue

Mutsch from 'playstation-disorder' reports:
"Just recently a friend mine asked me to test a one of his DVDs on my PS3, cause his unit doesn't playback the DVD anymore. My first guess was that there is an issue with the upscaling feature of the PS3, but interestingly enough it is a problem with only a few DVDs.

First of all the DVD played as it should on my PS3, no problem at all. After searching on the net he found out that there is obviously a bug in the current firmware that causes the screen to go blind for some DVDs. the way to correct this behaviour is to switch the max resolution back to 720p use the DVD player and switch it back to 1080i or 1080p, whatever.

As it looks right now this bug was introduced with the 1.90 firmware as part of the upscaling feature. As you might remember I also experience a similar bug on my monitor that doesn't allow me to upscale both PS2 games as well as DVDs."

Dlacy13g and xboxjimmy something or other were the first to approve this non-story. I could've sworn that those guys were happily married to their refurbed refurbs.

ima approve this but i've never heard of this issue.

in fact, i've never had any problem with any dvds beside bootlegs that were from PAL region

He should have mentioned the name of the DVD specifically so others could see if they had the same problem.

Of course they aren't going to name the specific DVD's. They want their rumor to continue living for as long as possible. Once they name which ones and ppl test them the rumor is debunked.

firmware update will surely fix that
