When I updated the PS3 with the Australian firmware version 2.7, I noticed that on The PS3 (XMB) under the Security Settings BD/DVD Parental Control Region was set to United States.
Is that the default setting?
Furthermore, as all country firmware updates are located on common servers, when I downloaded FW 2.7 from the Australian Sony site it actually downloaded the US version?
Bearing in mind that currently on the Sony Australian site the update version 2.7 is actually 2.6 (138.7MB).
When I downloaded version 2.7 it was 2.7 (142.4MB).
