This is not a BD-related question, but not sure where else to post.

I am having an issue related to the Hulu (Plus) App for my 160 GB PS3. I've been hearing a lot of crackling on Hulu shows, e.g. Wrong Mans S1 E3. The sound is replicable and appears in the same places during playback.

I believe I have this isolated to the PS3 Hulu app. I don't notice the same cracking from playing BDs or Netflix. Playing the same episode from a PC connected to my receiver has no crackling. I've checked and redone the speaker wiring, replaced the HDMI cable, and I live in an apartment so I've never come close to driving speakers at a level that would risk blowing them.

My setup: Energy Take 5.0 + Dayton Sub 1200 + Yamaha RX V675. PS3 connected to receiver via HDMI, and HDMI out to Vizio LCD HDTV.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is this something that can be fixed via receiver or PS3 settings? What can I try? I'm at a loss since I don't know what the PS3 Hulu app outputs audio-wise.

One-and-Only PS3 as Blu-Ray Player Thread

I was having trouble with all my content only being output as lossy on the PS3 so...

I checked the settings, making sure all the audio options were selected in the Audio Output Settings and Multi-Channel was set to OFF. All the HD Audio ones registered on my Denon 4520 as 7.1 and either DTS-HD MA or DolbyHD:



I don't know why they all show multi-channel, but they seem to show up right on at the receiver. Here is an overlay of the Denon 4520 audio info menu. Something interesting happened when I pressed fast forward into 1.5x speed:



Why does Multi-Channel keep showing up and is there a setting wrong somewhere? (Shouldn't it say 7.1 or something?) Is 3D + Dolby True HD the only Blu-ray playback limitation on the PS3?

Hi all.
Two quick questions, if you will...

When you stream a movie from Sony Video Unlimited, or download it to the hard drive first, then play it via HDMI to a receiver....

1* How do you tell the PS3 to output the original bitstream, rather than convert to PCM ?

2* How do you output 1080p24 (as Netflix can), rather than 1080p60 ?


Thanks very much, in advance....
