Try running the audio setup on the ps3 again. Does your receive have pass through? If so and you are using the yv only and not the received, then understand some of these upper codecs are not supported by TVs. So if this is the case your options are

1) run audio set up with act off and live within the limitations of the TV codecs
2) run audio with receive on and then always use it
3) run with optical in addition to HDMI and get sound to your TV via optical. This does put a limitation on codecs used by hdmi though and optical will be restricted to stereo.

Also try a different HDMI port and make sure your inputs are set up correctly via the menu on the avr

From what you stated just doesnt point me to the lens. How much did you pay for the lens?
There are tons of garbage lens out there. They are even rebuilding the diods now thats pretty crappy. Many China lens makers have stopped producing and rebuilding the 400 because if cost and failure. This is why mist are rebuilding the diode instead of replacing it. I have the only source that makes brand new not rebuilt assemblies. I pay top dollar for my 400 lenses. Ive neen in this game for a long time. Many of my vendors sell $12 $20 lenses i e tried and they are just flat out garbage. . They all fail quickly. The lens repair on a 400 i charge $115 with 6 month warranty if that tells you anything.
I myself send problem systems to Sony but trust me ive gotten DOA ones back from them lol. Ive had many fail with issues just after their 90 day warranty leaving me to replace my clients PS3 that i sold them out of my pocket. Sony repaired systems are not top notch as you would expect.

Schnurmac, I haven't bought the lens yet. I saw one on Amazon sold by Nextek distributors for about $50. That's for the lens + deck. The whole drive will run me about $85. I'm shipping this lens overseas so I want to make sure it lasts a couple of years if possible. I hope I don't get a DOA one... I'm even considering buying 2 and keeping a spare.

I think you charge a fair amount. There is a lot of headache and time that goes into replacing it. I just hope that I've diagnosed the problem correctly.

I bought a $40 lens on ebay and it's been good for the past year+. I agree that isn't your problem though, but just fyi because they do go bad.

There's no such thing as an HDMI 1.4 cable. Cables are either High Speed or Standard Speed. Chances are your current cable will work just fine. Previously certified by number 1.3 cables are "High Speed".

I understand standard and high speed and the possibility his 1.3 cable might work . But.........

post #4390 of 4476
But what? Your link list the connector hardware and specs. Per HDMI, Cables can no longer be rated with a number. They are High Speed or Standard speed with optional features, Audio Return Channel and Ethernet. As I said, a previously rated 1.3 cable ius a high speed cable and will carry 3D, etc. Whether or not it is capable of ARC, ethernet is a different question.

Silly .................... I said the cable should work....... and I showed there is a cable called 1.4 biggrin.gif

Now answer my question about my menu color changing on my PS3 Slim 120 after a firmware change.
post #4393 of 4476
No there is not a cable called 1.4. It is not allowed by HDMI. Your link shows the hardware specs. My link shows the cable. If people are advertising cables as 1.4 cables, they are not following HDMI protocols. As for the color change, try doing a player reset and reinserting the cable.

OK I just saw there is a cable called 1.4 on that link. Retired Grand Dad raised on analog I know zip about all this.

I read my owners manual and I did not see how to reset the PS3 Slim 120. I did read in the manual if system was on default setting the color of the menu changes from what time and day it is etc??

It has always been blue back ground on the menu and I checked all my video settings are like it was when I set it up.

Deep color OFF SW OFF RGB Limited BD/DVD Dynamic range OFF Bitstream to HD AVR ON.

I have reset my DISH DVR etc so I grasp what you are advising me to do. IIRC someone posted here to use the On/Off switch on the back and hold button down for 2 beeps and release to reset....my PS3 Slim 120 does not have this on/off on the rear???


Please explain how I "reset" my PS3 Slim 120. I use it for a Bluray player for my HT system and have a 1.3 HDMI from PS3 to my HD AVR (Bitstream)

Again, these are hardware specifications, not cable specifications. I guess the new protocols which were to clear up misconceptions, haven't.

Thanks for the advise I reset the PS3 Slim 120 but I did it this way....

You don't have to disconnect the HDMI cable to reset it with the red light on press and hold the power button until it turns on and then turns off the release your finger then turn it back on again that resets the video

Reconnected to wireless and went to Playstation store and it did a new firmware update before I could into store. Everything works perfect with games and DVD/Bluray movies. Odd that back ground has some sections with settings that are a washed out light pink in color and other trun blue when selected. As ALL of them use to blue back ground all the time. Noob with used PS3 Slim 120 for six weeks .......still on learning curve on this this. I do better with analog,tubs and r2R and vinyl. cool.gif


Stock wall paper is Not all blue anymore and Not from default setting like owners manual states, the color of the back ground changes from day,date and time on default setting. How does unplugging HDMI help reset a PS3 Slim 120??
Console works perfect on everything, games DVd and Blurays are awesome. Love all the color settings my BRDP did not have. Thanks for any advise you can offer.

Thank you for the info!

Hmmm... what do you reckon the problem is then?

As you said, shouldn't be any harm in ordering the lens now... it WILL die someday.

If resetting didn't work, then unplug and plug back in your HDMI cables. They might not be seated properly. How is your system run. PS3 to ???

PS3 Slim 120 HDMI (Bitstream) to 2009 model Yamaha HD AVR RX-V1900 7.1 130X7 4 feet away then HDMI to 55" LCD/LED flat screen 4 ft HDMI.

I have a second HD system in bedroom I will swap cables and try it again tomorrow. Just watched new Bluray Star Trek Into Darkness and Life Of Pi

today, they both have great audio and video. Odd that some of the selections on the menu turns blue when you stop on it... blue back ground... anything dealing with the Play Station Store lights up blue.???

Beats the heck out me what has caused the change.....games play perfect movies rock........this PS3 has so many more color adjustments then my Samsung BRP that after 5 years quit.

Audio on my Klipsch 5.2 HT system in this small den ROCKS my flat screen and two Cornwalls (fronts) fills that wall. Cables are working great no distortion at past

"Reference" sound levels.... color on Life Of Pi at night on the ocean was awesome. And the detail on the music at the start of Pi was clear and clean at 90 Db. I will check the cables

in a few minutes and tomorrow swap them around from other working system.no PS3.

Does it do the same thing if you bypass the receiver and plug it directly into the TV? One setting you might change is the Deep Color and 4:4:4: output.

I will try with different HDMI from PS3 to back of flat screen tomorrow when wife goes to work. I changed all my Deep Color, SW, RGB are all On now.... no change. Thanks. Post back tomorrow.
And I read this(link) about HDMI cables... as years ago there was a link going around about the 10 Lies in audio equipment and cables was near the top of that list, but I used 12 AWG on all my speaker drops (Monoprice ) that were 50 foot one piece lengths.Sewell Banana plugs gold plated spades on speakers etc all have nice connectors. I went for the gold plated bling on back of AVR and all speakers. Oh well they were not stupid expensive.
I noticed the High Speed HDMI have larger 22/24AWG inside. VS 26/28AWG older HDMI.......... hence higher speed Y/N??

I removed a working HDMI cable from the bedroom system and tried it from the PS3 Slim 120 to my flat screen in several different HDMI inputs ( my TV has 4) No change, the back ground on the menu is still a washed out light pink.

So it's Not my HD AVR I Bitstream to. Next I am going to take the PS3 into the bedroom and plug it into my other flat screen and see if this changes the menu color back to blue again.

If it's the same the heck with it..........it works great. I will play it like it is until it fries a hard drive etc like some do as it was used when I got it 6 weeks ago.


EDIT I hooked up the PS3 Slim to my flat screen direct in the bedroom....same washed out light pink back ground on the main menu and some will go blue when selected like before.mad.gif

Oh well moved it back into the den as it's my Bluray player and my Grand Son and I play games on it, he likes my HT sound system blasting when we kill zombies smile.gif Call Of Duty Black ops II

Don't worry about the color, you can change it... watch this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWL7AOUJjgU

I'm not sure if it does it still or not, but the color used to change on the 15th of every month to something different. I have been using a theme for about 2yrs so I don't know if the color still changes.

Blue was my fave. I then downloaded a few themes, and now I just switch themes whenever I see fit.
post #4408 of 4476

Can anyone explain this to me, I have no idea what they are talking about. They are attempting to play FLAC files on the PS3.

 

 

 

"Ooh, you're a tricky one. I like that. I'll mess around with it to see if I can get 48000 to play. But the 24-bit would require adding a line specifically for 24-bit and would most likely require coding to AAC or something similar since only 16-bit WAV is accepted...I think.
If you notice the line for LPCM, the mime type is l16. This means 16-bit LPCM. The mime type for 24-bit LPCM would be l24 which is not recognized by the PS3 as far as I've seen.
Now, as with the resampling to 44.1 or 48 kHz, are you certain that your original is one of those? If so, then it shouldn't resample at all and should actually just play it normally. However, if it is something along the lines of 96000 or so, then you will need the resampling button checked."

 

"It appears to work well in 1.90.2 which is a dev release. Take a look at it and download the dependency version before renaming to PMS.jar and placing it in the program directory.

Correction: I fixed it! As it turns out, for LPCM data, you need to have it separate from the wav section. Create a new line in the PS3.conf file under audio and make one out for Supported = f:lpcm a:lpcm n:6 s:48000 m:audio/l16
If you have/use DTS, you'll need to separate that one as well but find the correct mime type for it. But this should handle everything. ^_^
Oh, and don't forget to remove references to LPCM from the wav line."

 

http://www.ps3mediaserver.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=17246

 

:confused_face(1): 

 

Can you guys give me the simplest solution on how to play high resolution audio files (FLAC 24/192khz through 24/96 khz)  on the PS3? I am suing optical out if this helps.

Jw if @Ron Jones or anyone else plans on making a FAQ thread for PlayStation 4 when it comes out next month.
