You may need to set the PS3 to only output Dolby Digital, the TV might not be able to pass any other 5.1 signals.

You don't compensate for NTSC-J by turning down the brightness, you turn it up. The IRE in NTSC-J is lower than standard NTSC, not higher. And I was talking about US releases of anime, not Japanese...

Huh, interesting. Maybe it is just some idiot mistakenly trying to compensate for NTSC-J by cranking up the brightness, then.

I used a PS2 for the CD update back when I had a 605, so you don't necessarily need a CD player. Probably any DVD or BD player that can output at 44.1kHz will work, too.

Glad I didn't pre-order that. Strange though, since it's usually the Japanese who get it right with anime Blu-rays and Americans who mess up the black levels.

Are these slowed down to 1080p24 from 25p/50hz? Should I get the UK releases if I have the ability to play 50hz/Region B releases?

There's quite a few anime releases like this, the ones I know of for sure are Serial Experiments Lain and Black Lagoon (only the US releases from Funimation, the Japanese releases are fine).

It might not necessarily be region locked, I'm pretty sure most (all?) of Arrow's releases are region free. It's possible the extras would be in PAL, though.
