February 1, 2014 // 6:14 pm - Following up on the previous updates, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer Andreas Oman updated the Showtime PS3 Media Center Stable builds to version 4.4 followed by Testing Build v4.5.7 with details below.

Download: showtime-gh-4.4.pkg / showtime-4.4.pkg / showtime-4.4.self / showtime-gh-4.4.pkg / showtime-4.4.pkg /showtime-4.4.self / Showtime 4.4 ISO (showtime.iso - all settings goes into showtime directory on USB port 1 the right most one) by Mogwai

To quote: Over 750 commits later I've finally decided to release Showtime 4.4

Some of the most prominent features are:

  • Raspberry Pi support

Full SD images are available that turns your RPi into a Showtime powered media center. SD Card images can be downloaded at: showtimemediacenter.com/downloads/stos

The STOS (Showtime OS) have built-in upgrades of both the Showtime application itself and the whole system (including the Linux kernel)

PS3 specific changes

  • NTFS support. Both Read and Write (Finally!)
  • Ability to turn off system when video playback is completed
  • Use X button for Play/Pause

General new features

  • Built-in FTP Server
  • Automatic code page detection. Showtime will guess the code page used for SRT files, etc based on language heuristics.
  • FTP client support (Stream content directly from FTP servers)
  • Ability to delete file and folders where applicable
  • Custom background (via plugin)
  • .sub (Microdvd) support
  • Much improved support for loading subtitles from different locations
  • Ability to activate/devative automatic metadata lookup per-folder
  • Mark all items in folder seen/unseen
  • On Screen Keyboard on systems other than PS3
  • Subtitle position can be configured per movie

Plus a lot more bug fixes. For the full list of issues closed see: showtimemediacenter.com/versions/56


Testing Build v4.5.7 Changelog:

  • Add support for BIG5 character encoding
  • Add support for .txt subtitles
  • Upgrade PARAM.SFO: Enable PSP Remote support and DTS audio
  • Consistent naming of logfile on disk
  • SRT: Skip over any initial control characters
  • keyring: Make it possible to ask without password
  • Make it possible to prioritize items in blobcache

Right now only used to make sure the TMDB configuration (which is small) get stored without risking to be expired. If it is expired none of the other images can be loaded.

If it freezes when you watching a movie, you could try to replace showtime.self. From a different working showtime, find the showtime.self.

Once you got that, go to dev_hdd0/game/bles80608/USRDIR and copy it over the non-working one. Or you could update to habib 4.66.
