The cable was NOT ok. It wasn't a v1.2 cable, which is what I bought today for less than the other one (and longer), and now it works like a charm. 720p and 1080p mkv files playing flawlessly! I'm chuffed to bits! It's so beautiful! I just watched the Top Gear rip and will now test Moon with Slovenian subtitles. If that works as it should, this is the best purchase I've done in a while.

EDIT: It does! :D

It's the cheap model they unveiled a while ago so it only has 2 USB ports, no PS2 and I believe no card reader. But I don't really care, apart for that it's a full PS3 anyway :-D
oh ic, well enjoy your ps3 then :)

It just switches back. I was told in another forum that there's supposed to be a confirmation window after that, where you have to press right to highlight the YES button and then hit enter. I did that and now I get no signal on the composite too! Looks like it switches to HDMI, but can't shake hands with the TV. :(
Have you tried another cable?
The cable is ok, tried it with another player and tv.

You're welcome. :p

My friend called me from Fry's ones, while in line to buy a whole 'nother $300 4-drive external enclosure because he thought his was bad. I told him to turn around, put it back, and buy a $4 cable and try that instead. Works just fine now.

I think, pretty much any cable provided with anything I've purchased has gone bad...

A few unimaginative pics of my new HD setup. The player is so powerfully miniscule! Plays high bitrate 1080p mkv files without a single hiccup.

Decided to buy one just to try it out:



Heck, it works as a inline remote, so no loss.
