-Standby is now call Rest Mode.
-You can now manually check for updates for individual games
- you can set how long USB ports are going to be powered (for charging controllers)
- there's a guide for voice commands
- devices now display mouse (so it should work now)
- you can record voice messages by pressing triangle
- tweaks to the party screen
- PS button brings you to popup now
- battery indicator in upper left corner
-You can now browse through the live streams menu while the current stream you are watching gets a windowed mode
This is possibly something to do with the TV. I just put it into standby and left the TV turned on until it was properly in standby, and it seems to have worked. Previously I had just immediately turned the TV off.
It could also be a coincidence, though. Worth a try?
To elaborate, if you press the PS button while in a game or app, the home screen now shows a popup in the top left that shows all devices in use by that user. So headset battery, keyboard connection, controllers and anything else is in there. Great for a quick battery level check.
Third times the charm: When I go to Shareplay, get as far as picking someone to play with and then back out, my volume goes right down and I have to restart my PS4 to put it right. Is anyone else having this issue? It's when it doesn't detect a mic.
Once I confirm which YT account I want to link to my PSN account it just goes into a sign up loop. Annoying.
Strange thing is, I signed into the new PS4 YT app with my primary YT account without being prompted which account I wanted to use. It just signed me in automatically. So I am assuming accounts are connected but something is just not working as regards to direct YT uploads.
Hold onto the power button until it shuts off completely (give it at least 30 seconds) and then turn it back on. Should be fine afterwards.
If it doesn't respond then wipe down the power button with a cloth (oily fingers or just general residue) and try again.
Sad to say this happened to me on launch day lol so it's nothing new.
Is it better to now play against a friend in a game (NHL 15 for instance) using Share Play or to play against them online? Is there less lag when using Share Play as opposed to playing a regular online game?
It seems (though could just be traffic) that you should first update PS4 and then Vita if you want remote play to keep working. I updated my Vita first and now I can't find my PS4 with it - could be though that PSN is just too busy or something.
