Go into your Netflix pc account and make sure you have it set to do hd streams. I had this disabled when I had my terrible 3mbps dsl.
I took it off Auto and forced it to HD and now everything is perfect. Thank you.

It's the same bug, except now it probably checks to see how old it is before saving it (thus not saving anything at all now). They've tried to brush it under the rug. Completely absurd and a huge piss off. Feature is useless.

People tell me this and are either lying or don't understand the problem. It happens to everyone who uses it enough to recognize it.
It depends on the game. Some games like COD record well and sone games like Killzone are very unreliable. In my experience at least.

I don't think I'm making myself clear. My question is simple. If I create a custom profile pic, will it show up here...?



Prior to 1.70, if you had your camera off it just showed a placeholder image. Now it shows your PSN avatar. However, if you have a custom profile, will it show that instead? You are looking at your own screen and that's what is being broadcast after all.

Thanks.
Guy streaming earlier had a Donatello (Ninja Turtle) pic showing whilst streaming. I know you can't get turtle avatars here in the UK but what about in the US?

If anyone took pics of the Blu-ray player UI before 1.70 it'd be nice to compare. I don't remember it looking quite this polished.




They still need to use the PS3's XMB title graphic in place of that low-res disc placeholder though. I'd like it if they brought back the bitrate meter that PS3 has too.
Very minor differences (aside from the new option) -- looks like they changed the font size or kerning

Not sure why you're getting that placeholder either:

Carry over from his PS3 avatar?
Can you get turtle avatars on the PS3? I don't think we could get them here in the UK and the picture looked kind of 'amateur' and I instantly thought it looked uploaded.

I could be totally wrong of course, it just looked different compared to the other streamers (who all had avatars I recognised).

Nice, Trophies are completely f'ed for me. I'll quote myself from another thread:

So it seems this bug was never solved, or 1.70 brought it back.

I've downloaded Daylight today and after playing it for half an hour I wanted to check the Trophies for this game. When I opened my Trophy list the game didn't show up at the top of the list like it normaly does. So I tried to sync and got the same error code like OP. Since the third try I'm getting NP-32136-5 which seems to be the same.

Some of the solutions here say to keep on playing the game, but I don't think that helps in my case. Since I checked the Daylight Trophy list online, I should've unlocked the first Trophy already, but nothing popped or showed up under Notifications.

What I tried now is launching another game I've never played before, Flower. I played until I found the first secret flower, the Trophy popped and when I opened the list, Flower was on top and the Trophy showed up. Rather strange: When I manually sync now I still get the error code but Flower is also on top of my list on Vita and the mobile app on my phone showing the one Trophy I earned

I just deleted Daylight and re-downloaded it. Still missing under Trophies...

Oh, restoring licenses didn't work either for me. Do I have to wipe my hard drive?


EDIT:

It seems it's a problem with the game itself. After searching a bit more it seems everyone has the same issue with it. Fix ASAP please.
Now tonight I continued playing Child of Light and a story specific Trophy didn't unlock. Also the game doesn't go to the top of my list after launching it. Still can't sync.

Won't touch my PS4 for now and looking forward to speak to the increbibly incompetent PS customer support on monday.

Since the update my PS4 always boots to safe mode.

At this point i've tried everything and have no other choice but to reinitialize.

Can't wait to download all my shit again.

Ground Zeroes played fine for me after 1.70 and the patch. Aside from one weird bug with a marine's legs dropping through the ground and arms contorting round his back. He went back to normal once I got close enough though.

Not sure why you're getting that placeholder either:
Fonts and icons appear a little less jaggy, clearer in 1.70 too, flicking between the before/after pics. They got rid of the needless shade effect in the bottom left where 'Menu' is showing and swapped the yellow and blue buttons to match their tv remotes.

Just going to check some more recent Blu-ray movies, they might have introduced another type of title graphic into the BD spec that PS4 uses during playback?

All three of these more recent (than Casino Royale, freebie PS3 print) movies/bonus discs showed a unique title graphic:

The Hunger Games
Skyfall
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Noticed the PS+ cloud uploads failing last night as well. Hopefully it's down to PSN issues at the time, or they issue a fix pretty quickly.
Just reupload the file, my Trials one failed (everything else from that day saved fine) because it thought there was a conflict of saves between PS4s. I only have one PS4, so I saved over it and everything has been fine since that one incident.

Umm, have you tried adjusting the screen size in the options menu? If I remember correct, inFamous offered this option.

Mine doesn't take nearly that long with just a Sony Memory Stick M2 and USB2 adaptor.

Is your display area set up right?

First of all set your TV to Full Pixel/1:1 pixel mapping if it lets you, then on PS4 expand the white corners right to the edge of the picture.

edit: I had one of several saves for inFAMOUS:SS not upload and when I tapped X on the icon, the error was that another PS4 had uploaded the same save slot and it wasn't sure if I wanted to overwrite it. I only have one PS4 but I did recently initialise (format) it when changing the HDD for an SSD. Maybe online storage doesn't recognise it as the same PS4 because of that.

Another little thing I hope they fix, some text like 'Uploads' in the categories above (also the same layout in Friends and Live From PlayStation) the font looks like it's upscaled when selected instead of increasing font size. So it ends up looking blurry.

hows it useless/brushed under the rug ive used it 30+ times in BF4 and only once did it show different 15mins and that time my PS4 was on for 5/6 hours before i started playing other than that it works flawlessly for me and not lying mate. all i think it needs is to be upped to 1080p rec

I have been messing around with the video recording a bit since the patch, and what I have found so far is that the system will continue to record the last 15 min of gameplay, but it won't automatically start recording. This means that while I have had it continue to record, I have first had to set a start point with a double tap, or open the share menu once. After doing one of those two things, it seems to be fine.

Obviously this isn't ideal, and they still have some work to do on fixing the video recording, but at least it seems consistent so far once it's started.

Er...this update has completely fucked up my PS4, I'm getting constant HDMI flickers (TV loses the signal, screen goes black) tried other cables and TVs so its definitely the PS4 (and it was working perfectly just now before I did the update).

One thing I always forget I want in a new firmware is to organize my friends list. I'd love to just be able to quickly jump to certain people that I deem as "favorites".

Try going into Video Settings and setting Deep Color from automatic to Off.

I just came back on to say this. I haven't played since the update. WTF is going on?

Edit: Also, just went down to Overview on a game (highlight a game, press down) and I could hear me moving through menus but the cursor was missing and I couldn't back out. Had to reset.

Try going into Video Settings and setting Deep Color from automatic to Off.
That fixed it it seems. And turning off HDMI Output for audio (which is weird).

This update seems quite messed, they will have to relase another one soon to correct many of the problems that came with it (and some other old ones).

I had the upload saved game problem saying about other PS4 aswell, and I dont have another PS4 and neither formatted mine or changed its original HDD.

Not saying the still very bugged auto recording function.

Share button still records what it wants, not what you want!

Just had a awesome headshot in BF4, a great, a lucky shot, but still great shot. I press share, followed by (square) to save the video. I go back to replay the video, it records everything after the shot. Recorded the big gold battle pack I received right after the shot, and the death streak following, but not the shot.....awesome playstation.

Thats is really ridiculous. Probably the most expected new funciton of the console and still is FAR from working properly.

One thing that I realized yesterday, and seems to "work", is to mannualy activate the video record (in my case double pressing the share button) and let it there till you stop playing or till the moment you want to capture. It will record the 1st 15min and save right away, but just after it, seems the console starts auto recording what happens next.

The firmware changed my TV setting, so check that out first. It had changed my setting from widescreen to zoom.

I spent 20 minutes looking for the stream quality setting, cant find it anywhere. I want to turn it to Max quality, how do I do that again?

Also is there a quality option for uploading videos?

Not sure if the latest update introduced this, but the system just told me that you can close windows in the browser by holding down O. You can also hold down X to open a link in a new window too. Might not be massively exciting info, but there we go.
