So does this 3D Audio work with real 5.1/7.1 set-up?
True, so you mean the PS5 sends the 3D audio to the TV but the TV then sends that signal to the AV via Dolby Digital +.We don't think so since it says it been expanded from working with just headphones to "TV speakers" as well and Cerny's Road to PS5 talk mentioned a release order for 3D audio that had TV speakers first:
But I don't think anyone is really sure yet, I've seen no reports regarding whether you can force it on for a soundbar/receiver by just setting the output to "TV speakers", although maybe that limits you to stereo anyway. I suppose you could use the sound systems own upmixer with the stereo source but obviously thats getting stupid.
Are these ps5 codes being sent out allowed to be shared among 20 people like other firmwares? If so...can I have one pweeese.
Get an Xbox.not having 1440p as an option is such an obvious anti consumer thing to keep people from buying PC monitors instead of their own TVs it's ridiculous.
same with no VRR until their TVs support it. they clearly want to give you no features that their own TVs don't support.
they have no 1440p Monitors on the market, so no 1440p for you!
they don't have any VRR TVs on the market, so no VRR for you!
The HDMI Body has yet to officially finalize the HDMI 2.1 VRR spec. LG has their own VRR implementation in use.Because for some reason Sony has decided not to enable these features yet.
Nobody actually knows. Rumors are going around this might have something to do with
their TV division. As you may know, Sony hasn't even delivered HDMI VRR with their TVs yet, even though they promised.
Also do not expect FreeSync support on PS5. Sony only mentioned VRR speficied by HDMI 2.1. Which of course is based on AMDs FreeSync via HDMI implementation. But the EDID is different. Traditionally Sony is a really conservative company when it comes to PC features. And FreeSync is a PC feature. So they might skip FreeSync and focus on HDMI VRR.
The whole thing regarding the Panasonic converter chip might also explain why Sony has never talked about stuff like ALLM. Displayport simply does not support ALLM unless they find another way to implement it.

Sony wants to use HDMI 2.1 VRR, not AMD's Freesync nor their own.
Spec might was the wrong word to use, implementation should be the more correct one. I’ll try to find the source from a Interview with a Sony representative who explained why it takes so long on the Sony front. And it basically said VRR is not fully documented/implemented.The specs for HDMI 2.1features have been finished years ago. Even for HDMI VRR. This is why companies like LG were able to implement HDMI VRR and other features back in 2019 or even earlier. Microsoft e.g. implemented HDMI VRR and ALLM on XBox One X. Other companies like Denon and Marantz implemented HDMI 2.1 features like eARC and ALLM in much older devices as well.
However, not the specs of the features took the longest, but the specs for some of the tests. Of course you need tests in order to verifiy everything. But even these test specs have been finished in late 2020/early 2021. By the way, the test specs for repeater chips took the longest. Those chips are used in AVRs. Which is why AVR manufactures were not able to mention HDMI 2.1. But they are now. Which is why you can see "HDMI 2.1" mentioned in the specs for Yamaha AVRs:
Specs for the Yamaha RX-A6A AV receiver – a reference standard in home theater with 9.2 channels and 8K HDMI, Dolby Atmos and Vision, DTS:X, and more.usa.yamaha.com
P.S. : LG does not use their own VRR implementation. They are using HDMI VRR. The same standard that has been implemented by NVIDIA, Microsoft and so on.

I tend to believe this as even LGs VRR implementation has its unique quirks.
I wouldn't get too excited on the 3D audio front, most likely and the way this is worded I think the support is for TV stereo speakers only, I don't think this is the 5.1/7.1 update many of us have been waiting for.
I believe the roadmap was like this:
Still a ways to go, and I am unconvinced the psychoacoustics of the Tempest engine will have much effect. This will sound similar to the "Surround Mode" on most smart TV sound settings.
TV speakers are the bottom end of the shit pile in audio even on the best days. I wonder how headphones 3d sounds coming out the tv's optical. In theory there should be no difference between controller / usb / hdmi -> TV -> headphonesHaven't posted about my experience yet, but I will a little.
First off, 3D audio through speakers aren't close to being on par with headphones. Certainly not my SteelSeries Arctis 7p. So it may work but it damn sure not the same sound quality wise in Returnal and my tv speakers are pretty decent in general.
Besides the obvious loss of activity feed that needs to comeback asap, im annoyed by the fact that I don't know who has the games I have. It use to tell me on PS4 but on PS5, unless I missed something, it just shows you how many have the same game. That means I have to go one by one to find something like that out.
Have no plans to mess with the storage in the foreseeable future so no need to talk about that.
This isn't possible.Can someone in theory upload the firmware to the net and other users download and it flash it through a usb stick ? It’s baffling that we can’t try this .
Ok the other hand just to rub it in, Sony sent me an invite to a ps4 firmware update . Like.. fuck off -_-
Don't take things so seriously, I'm sure your criticism is as valid as anyone elses.it's always funny when you say something bad about a game that happens to be a console exclusive and idiots come out of the woodwork interpreting it as bashing sony... I bash Drive Club, because it is a shitty looking racing game with terrible controls and shitty rules
I am also sad that Motor Storm had to die for that shitty ass excuse for a racing game
I also bash Halo 4 and 5 for being CoD wannabe shitshows that almost ruined a whole franchise... guess I'm a sony fanboy now
if you don't want it I'll gladly take it ^_^I got a code from Sony for the beta testing. I realized Im just not comfortable with doing a beta test on my relatively new system and possibly bricking it or what have you. Is it ok to give it to someone else? Or will Sony know and ban that ps5 or even my account?
