Default PS3 Firmware Update 1.81 Available Tomorrow

Just a quick update: we’ll be making available firmware upgrade 1.81 tomorrow which will fix a few small issues some of you have noticed. Most notably is the RGB Full setting which a few of you wrote in about. In 1.80 we added an option to the XMB under settings allowing you to choose between RGB Full and Limited. Basically if you are connecting your PS3 to your TV using an HDMI cable, and if your TV supports RGB full range, the picture quality may be improved when this option is set to Full. Some of you pointed out that the Full setting would sometimes revert back to Limited and 1.81 will address this issue. Please keep in mind that this setting is only effective when the PS3 is connected to a TV using an HDMI cable. You can download the update tomorrow from PlayStation.com or through your System Update option on the PS3 XMB.

We’re continually evaluating and improving PS2 software compatibility too. Where we can, we’ll look to share similar updates like this on our blog moving forward. Thanks for your ongoing feedback and support!

Performance wise, backgrounds don't mean anything. The system isn't any different with a different background. DTS-HD Master Audio, however is an especially important feature that is missing. With Fox's MSRPs of $39.99 for each BD, and all are recorded is HD MA, I want my moneys worth, the lossless tracks will be a signifigant improvement over the regular DTS. I have listened to TrueHD vs DD and the difference is substantial. listen to Troy, Letters From Iwo Jima and all Matrix movies and you will hear the difference

Not really retarded for those who have RGB Full supported on their TV(like me), everytime the PS3 was turned off/reset, the RGB Full option would say it was on Full(on), but it was actually on Limited(off)... we would have to switch it on everytime, it got annoying... and I'm glad Sony fixed this.
