Hey guys, so I've just received my ps3 fat off eBay running 3.55 official fw and looking for some advice on which cfw and if order of upgrades etc matters.
I'm going to use the ps3 to replace my mythbuntu media center, myth is great but too complicated and takes ages to keep on top of the configuration. I have ordered a 750gb hdd for the ps3 and a playtv so all in should be a nice solution.
I want the "best" cfw for playing backups off the hdd and handling media. Do any of the cfw or showtime add support for extra video file types? I know fat32 is limited to 4gb but the guides on mkv2vob are great, its avi etc I'm wondering about.
Can cfw be connected to lovefilm/internet or will it always be trying to go to sonys latest fw? I know I can't play online with cfw, but as I said the focus is media handling with gaming.
Do I still need to register for divx to work in cfw?
Finally, can I get updating the cfw now while I'm waiting for the hdd to arrive, or am I better to wait and do it all in one go?
I'm thinking of running ps3ultimate cfw as reading around it seems to suit my needs, but happy to take any suggestions really.
Thanks for your help,
