Thanks for the info, though I have current firmware, so I can't break outta jail...
But I will check out that site- thanks.

Well, I've never been accused of being normal...
Seriously though, once I turn on my bigscreen TV, I don't turn it off until I'm done for the night, since power cycling is harder on electronics than longer on-times. So, when I listen to music after having watched something, the screen is available. Even the included visualizations look pretty cool on a 67" screen, but I like the ones that are synched to the music.
I'm surprised that more people aren't interested, but then it seems like sitting down and listening to music has become a rare activity these days. Guess I'm pretty uninformed about PS3, but what are the half-finished features to which you refer?

The PS3 has a few visualizations in Life With PlayStation, though. I like the globe.
Have seen that, but I like the synched visualizations. Like the frequency wave-forms on Flaming Lips Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots dvd-a- really cool.
