Has anyone had success in controlling the squeeze center using a playstation 3? The web browser connects to the server using ok but won't display the web page properly and actually freezes the ps3 after a while.
Any hints gratefully accepted.

using the default skin.

You could try using a simpler skin like Classic or Touch. The PS3 browser is pretty non-standard and has problems with a lot of pages.

Heh - that's putting it lightly. PS3's browser has so much wrong with it, I find it painful sometimes. It's sad too, really, because it's implementation for use with a gamepad controller is awesome (and elegant at times). It's just that so many things don't work with it or are flat out broken I tend to get up and walk into the next room to do serious browsing on my desktop.

And don't even get me started on its video codec support - half my WMV's lock up or give me some sort of error. If I play them back on my Xbox 360 or PC they work fine.

Awesome job Sony! *rolls eyes*

Oh well, it's a decent BlueRay player. Too bad most the games suck. ;-P

Tried the classic skin and it seems to mostly work, I'll try a few others and see if I can get better results. The main problem now is that you sit a distance from the tv screen and small characters are hard to read. So I'll keep on looking. Thanks.
