The majority of this will work aside from playback of high definition. HD videos (essentially once the PPU expires of cycles). You will find a lot of methods based on how this ought to be handled but I have not had time for you to start digging into this yet
Showtime on PS3 continues to be examined with 576i, 720p and 1080i video resolutions.
I have attempted to create reasonable defaults for overscan compensation. But when it not correct for you personally it may be modified under Configurations -> Display and UI configurations
Buttons on controller
? Activate (Enter) presently focused item
? Navigate back
? Mention options / playcontrol menu
? Screensaver (Until something better continues to be determined)
? Home menu
L3 – Mention playback info (Throughout video playback)
R3 – Mention log console
Inserting inside a standard keyboard within the PS3 USB port works and it is presently the only method to input figures.
No virtual keyboard is supported right now.
Other things that doesn’t work
TV-style remote controller (whatever that’s known as) is not examined. No clue whether it works or otherwise.
BD/DVD/Compact disc Dvds – No clue how that actually works
Digital pass through audio (AC3, DTS, etc)
You will find most likely lots of individuals. Please make use of the problem tracker at http://www.lonelycoder.com/redmine/projects/showtime/issues/new
