Hey All, I just discovered what appears to be yet another bug on the firmware 1.8 ;(
The following only applies to you if you use firmware 1.8 ON A "DMS3 V9" (= on a V9/V10 console).
As you all know, the new PS2 V9 & V10 have onboard progressive scan for all DVD movies and certain PS2 games that allows it (Guilty Gear,...)
The problem is that the DMS3 V9 fw 1.8 just PLAINLY HIDES THIS OPTION!!
See for youself :
Boot a DVD movie normaly for the DMS3 : press SQUARE at boot.
The DVD movie boots alright. Now press "select" on the controller to access the DVD options and go on the "Setup" icon (under "7"), press X.
Now go on the "Screen Setup" tab.
You see the following :
- Tv Type
- Outline Shaprning
AND THAT'S IT ;(
Now, take a DVD movie that matches the region of your console (ie: R1 DVD movie for R1 PS2) or a RegionALL DVD movie.
This time, boot the DVD movie in STEALTH MODE (pressing eject for 3 seconds at boot).
And this time go see the "Screen Setup" tab...
THE PROGRESSIVE SCAN option is THERE...!
It displays :
- Tv Type
- Outline Sharpning
- Progressive <----
I *really* hope the DMS team can fix that along with the "black-screen-for-DVD5-when-you-don't-use-fast-boot" problem...
