Current Mood: thankful
and finally – finally – the ps3 rolls the upconverted dvd picture happiness, but first –
“when people who used to wrap tin foil around bunny rabbit antennas get a ps3…”

See, I hooked up things last night and was so happy with the visuals from music, and then I tried to play a movie.

Huh. Why am I watching static blink on my tv? It’s very sharp static – like digital static – cool…
but it’s not The Fast The Furious – All New Tricked Out Edition!! – What’s going on???

ugh…. ok, google – hit me – what cha got??
“HDMI cable – bought a new one, stopped the flicker”
“HDMI cables are fickle …”
“is it flickering with a red screen?”
“the red light of doom”
“I”m on CNET to show you the ps3 blinking problem – game goes in, and it blinks. It’s the HDCP copy protection handshake between the game system and the tv set – the tv thinks everything is fine, and the PS3 thinks everything is fine. To fix it, if you’re comfortable with a slightly technical fix – unplug the HDMI cable and wait three or five seconds. Plug it back in and voila – we’ve got sound. it’s fixed…”

er, ok. tonight I’m gonna … turn off the tv. turn it back on – aha!!!! Kung Fu – yay!!!

it’s an interesting twist to the ‘hold on, just a little bit more -cool – I can see the game – don’t move at all, or we’ll loose the station” …

hope everyone is having a fine time … and a great weekend …

ciao,
