For people who like to run bleeding edge, build your own builds with UMSBuilder - http://www.universal...c.php?f=8&t=311

edit: Worth a run, downloads UMS 1.7 which features new icons/theme.

Hmmm what is the trick for Cinavia and changing the time? I tried it this afternoon and it just did not work, unless of course it is supposed to happen every 5 or 10 minutes?

There is no trick to get around Cinavia except streaming it to something that doesn't care/can't read the fingerprint in the audio track.

This is how I do it, and it works for about 20-30 minutes depending on the video. Thus, I normally end up around the year 2016.
Steps:
Start movie
Cinavia starts and mutes.
Press O to back out of the movie and go to the Settings section of the PS3.
Go to Date and Time, and move the year up 1 year. IE- 2012 to 2013
Go back to the movie, you can use X to normally start from where you left off, or press Triangle ( i believe ) and it will give you the option to play from where you left off.
Keep watching the movie until Cinavia starts up again, rinse and repeat.

It has been working for me. I haven't had a single movie not let that method work when Cinavia has reared it's head.

Just remember after you watch the movie to put your date back to the correct year, or PSN will not let you back on :p

It seems to be a problem (for windows users most likely) to get 2.1.0 to start. This has to do with administration rights on some files etc.
To solve this a new 2.1.1 can be found HERE and used as a temporary 2.1.1 until SubJunk gets back after weekend and a proper 2.1.1 can be shipped.

I'm having an issue with UMS and DTS sound. Whenever I select DTS sound, all I get is a loud screaching sound of static. It says that it must be hooked up via hdmi, which my system is, except for the PC which is connected to everything via lan cable and router..... Is that not correct for DTS streaming? Because if it requires the PC to be hooked to the TV via hdmi directly, I see no point in having UMS lol.

On your ps3 push triangle and make sure the audio volume is at default. DTS doesn't work if it's at -1, +1, ect.

Assuming our ticking the "Keep DTS" checkbox in the Transcoding Settings > Audio settings
