I have to ask where is the update? How do we know that the PS3 will offer a firmware update for BR 1.1 and beyond? I searched the entire Sony PS3 site. I fired off 2 e-mails to Sony support. I think it would be uber cool if that feature could be added as a firmware update.
Here I am days later and no reply from Sony PS3 support.
I called PS3 support a few nights ago (Call them yourself 800-345-7669). They have no idea if the new 40GB PS3 will support BR 1.1. I confirmed that they know what 1.1 is, but they can not guarantee that the 40GB PS3 will support the new features. I asked for a manager and he gave me the same response. So I now throw down the Gauntlet, Please show me some info out there where Sony is confirming and posting that my investment today is protected for the future....

I thought the 40gb had to be 1.1 since it was introduced after Oct 31st as that was mandated by the BDA.

Sony announced the 40GB player before the Oct. 31 deadline. Read it here.

Here is another thing you can do but at your own risk. Stream movies using your PS3 browser.

go to:

there are other sites i am looking at for now tubezoom works. is where alot of these movies seem to be streamed from.

Also you can use Nero home or the new winamp to stream videos, pics , or music to the PS3. Nero and Winamp transcodes meaning encodes your videos on the fly when streaming to the PS3 to a compatible format for viewing. ALl this done in 1080p.

You also can play your music while you view pics on your PS3. The PS3 is way more flexible than the other two systems. More to come.
