September 6, 2011 // 8:52 pm - Today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer Andreas Oman has officially updated Showtime PS3 Media Player to version 3.1.228, which now includes multichannel audio output on the PlayStation 3 console.

Download: Showtime PS3 Media Player v3.1.228 (PKG) / Showtime PS3 Media Player v3.1.228 (SELF)

To quote: Another release. This build adds support for multichannel audio output on PS3 (AC-3, DTS and 8 channel linear PCM). Note that due to how the PS3 audio frameworks applications can not output raw digital bitstreams.

So Showtime still needs to decode the audio and than the PS3 will reencode the audio in the best available encoding mode the user has selected (or don't do any encoding at all if 8 channel PCM is available)

Still this is a major step compared to having just 2 channel stereo.

For all you who roll your own builds of Showtime, please note that you need latest version of my PSL1GHT fork for Showtime to build.

I've also fixed a major memory leak that manifested itself when rendering fonts with outline (which is default for subtitles). So if you watched a movie with subtitles the memory would drain and Showtime would eventually crash.

Another thing is the increase of packet buffer to 40MB in conjunction with some adjustments to socket buffers, etc. This should hopefully make streaming over lousy wireless connections better.

Have fun!

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.

Cool! I hope my PS3 ever completely replace XBMC. 1080p, Dolby+DTS must have!
