  1. Bought Olli Olli Switch Stance (loved it on Vita), Mr Driller and Katamari Reroll today. Fantastic entertainment. My 5 year old thinks Katamari is brilliant! He's not wrong.
  2. "If only you could talk to the monsters..."
  3. Has anybody tried LEGO City Undercover? Wondering how that does now.
  4. Yeah, it's weird. I thought you'd want the TV set to PCM same as the PS5 but apparently not. Bitstream is the way to go on the TV regardless of what the PS5 is sending. Like I said, I miss SCART.
  5. @Thor @Thor Press 11111 here: Press right on the next screen to highlight HDMI, press select Voila! Audio channels confirmed!! Fin.
  6. Go to all settings, programmes, highlight 'programme tunings & settings" then press 11111. Brings up a hidden info screen. Can see all sorts of info.
  7. All my faffing wondering if I'm getting the best audio out of this thing and all I needed to do was use the 11111 menu on the TV and it tells me how many channels of audio the TV is receiving!
  8. Oh. My. Days!!! That makes such a difference! Even on the home screen it just looks bolder in terms of colour. Also, I'd forgotten to change the HDMI audio input to PCM from Bitstream on the TV and that's made the sound a bit meatier too. Boy, do I miss the days of simply plugging in a SCART cable.
  9. Do you mean that the PS5 is set to "Auto" and the TV is now set to "High" or is the PS5 set to "Auto" and the TV to "Low"? The C9 doesn't have an "Auto" black level, annoyingly!
  10. Fuck Amazon! The 5TB WD Elements hard drive I bought for my PS4 back cat games has dropped by £40 as part of Black Friday. I contacted customer service to be told they wouldn't refund me the difference but I could order another drive at the cheaper price and then, when it arrives, send it back as the more expensive drive. Why. Not. Just. Refund. The. Difference?!?!?!
  11. To misquote the Beastie Boys: "I can't stand it, I didn't plan it, I get such bad FOMO, I bought both fo sho" PS5 was always getting bought but Smyth's had an Xbox Series S for click and collect at 22.30 on launch day and I just, well, I just hit the place order button. Very happy I did (at the moment, no buyer's remorse yet).
  12. No, it wasn't showing there. DB rebuild did nothing either. Nor unplugging the HDD. In the end I factory reset and managed to download it to internal storage. It then errors saying it was installed one external too and needed to be deleted from one of them. I think there may have been an issue when I originally moved it from internal to external. All good now though.
  13. Having a weird issue with Crash N. Sane from the PS+ Collection. I downloaded it the other day and played a level. Tonight it says it is installed but on the thumbnail there's the PS+ logo and the download arrow. If I click on the bar that says installed nothing happens. Is the data corrupt? If so how the hell do I delete in order to redownload? There's no option at all. I've rebuilt database but that didn't help and the game isn't listed on either internal or extended storage in the settings area.
  14. I'm having to go into settings and do a full power down every time I switch off otherwise my external USB HDD spins up every 15 minutes or so. Wouldn't be too bad if it weren't for the bright blue LED on the enclosure that lights up when it does spin up.
  15. How many games are on the drive? It took a fair while for mine to be read and sorted ready for use (5TB drive with just over 2TB of games). I think that's what some of the "Other" folder is on the SSD - cache files for games on external drive so it can access them faster rather than searching the whole drive.
  16. From the PlayStation Support website: Version 20.02-02.26.00 1. This system software update improves system performance. 2. An issue where installed disc versions of games were sometimes deleted was resolved. 3. An issue that prevented the PS5 wireless controller from being charged while in rest mode when connected to the PS5's front side USB Type-A port using the USB cable included with some PS5 consoles was resolved.
  17. PCM. I've been round in circles. Set PS5 to Linear PCM, TV says PCM whether eArc is on or not. With eArc off I can change to Dolby and DTS and it shows the change.
  18. When using Dolby (with eArc disabled) I can hear more pronounced directionality in Astro and Spidey. With eArc on, no matter what option I choose on the PS5 or TV, the TV shows that it is outputting PCM and it sounds a bit flat.
  19. I find it sounds better. Maybe I'm imaging things...
  20. Do I? It sound quieter and less "full" than the Dolby.
  21. I've *finally* managed to get the thing to output in Dolby Digital surround. I thought eArc was supposed to be a cool, new feature for AV equipment? The last thing I did (after a reset of everything as I thought it could be a weird glitch) was turn of eArc and "pop" the banner on the LG C9 went from saying PCM to Dolby Audio. Clown shoes. Also, does anybody else's right trigger make a "boop" noise in Miles Morales when you go to shoot a web? Just before the adaptive trigger bites and he shoots the web? It isn't controller audio as I switched that off to test
  22. Different UHD film discs make the console drive louder than others. Spidey Homecoming is ridiculously loud, Ghost in the Shell (the ScarJo one) not at all. Maybe the way the disc is pressed / label side is printed causing imbalance?
