I am having issues with the quality of the play back and continuation of playback via the PS3.
1st issue is I generally have to watch it in the small windowed version as in full screen there is a .2ms delay in the image to voice and the quality of picture is that of 576*368 , so very low resolution, and when taken to full screen , it appears to be the same resolution, as it becomes quite pixelated.
2nd issue is I get to the 1st chapter of the playback and the streaming generally stops , so I cannot watch the full on-demand program.
I can use my PC for on-demand playback with 720p quality no problem.
Internet connection id 15Mbps downstream.
Can I reset my PS3, reload the firmware in case I have some corruption in the TVNZ on demand function etc...
bro tvnz has always been poor, its the internet browser of the ps3, its really poor. i think its the same problem the program stopping but im not sure bout that.
The fact that there is a icon available on my PS3 for TVNZ on Demand is either Sony and/or TVNZ's issue.
I did know that it was starting the browser , but even that functionality doesn't integrate properly.
At the end of the day SONY added TVNZ to the system so it needs to be supported.
I must admit, however, that the web browser included in the firmware (NetFront, which is really intended for embedding into phones — not smartphones, the other kind) is fairly pathetic. Sony could fix this by having a browser installed outside of the firmware, but I don't see this happening any time soon.
