Are any Plus users experiencing any issues with the Automatic Update feature?
Save Back Ups
I am currently looking into this, so let me know how you're getting on!
Solved! Go to solution
Hopefully 3.72 will fix any problems people have with auto-update.
I have been informed that the latest Update v3.72 should fix the auto update issue people have been having.
If there are further queries or issues, let me know.
Setting the PS3 back to factory default settings didn't fix the auto-update issue.
however, my avatar is visible now in the upper right corner.
(PS3 fat, 60GB)
I also reset the PS3's setting, but it did not help.
Automatic Downloads worked fine before the update, and manually syncing trophies and uploading game save files still works even now. So I don't think that this is an internet port issue. See, the console doesn't even turn itself on automatically, so it won't even try to establish an internet connection. I tried wired as well as wireless LAN.
So, RabidWalker/SCE, were you able to reproduce this problem?
could it be a problem with the ps3-internal clock?
i remember, that the ps3 already had some problems with the calendar, and some of us will also remember the iphone alarm-clock problem, where the alarm simply wouldn't run.
maybe a summer-time related problem?
It's funny. Right now my console runs the Automatic Updates.
What I did:
1. set the currently matching time frame (6-8 pm in this case)
2. set the system clock manually (basically just hit the X button to keep the current date and time)
3. set the system clock automatically
4. again set the currently matching time frame (6-8 pm in this case)
5. shut down the console through the respective XMB item
Right after shutting down the Automatic Update started. If SONY didn't change anything on their side, then I'd blame the console's internal calendar/clock.
Will do some more testing to confirm that Automatic Update keeps working.
Well, manually forcing the Automatic Update by selecting the currently matching time frame seems to work consistently now. Several game save files were uploaded and the Beyond Good And Evil demo started downloading.
I'll have the console start Automatic Updates automatically this night. Tomorrow morning I'll check how that worked out.
When is this going to be fixed, in the next update?
My notes from another post:

Ok, I think I've sorted it.
My system didn't auto update again last night, so have been playing around today.
Reset the internet connections setting and stopped using DMZ.
I then changed the date/time from 'manual' to 'set via internet'.
I changed the auto downloads time to match the time it was now, and selected it to be 'on' and then turned the console off.
The system then rebooted and I have the auto update message on screen.
This worked at the weekend when changing date/time to 'set via internet' so i think it's that.
Can everyone try the above and post back please. Thanks.
P.S. Remember to change the auto downloads time to suit you.
This worked for me so far. Will see if it keeps working on a daily basis automatically though.
Set auto update for between 04:00 - 06:00 and it DID NOT work. Played around with it again today and only way I got it to work was by turning auto update off, resetting date & time via internet option, turning auto update back on to my current time slot, powered off and worked again.
Therefore has nothing to do with my router or internet settings as not changed. This is a firmware bug that needs fixed as auto sync simply is NO LONGER AUTOMATIC
still no response from sony? anyone has called again? any new info?
It doesn't work for me, either.
I have PS3 160GB Slim.
How about releasing a 3.71 fix really quick?!
Still not working for me. I can force an automatic update like I mentioned but that's stupid.
Not even an update from Sony either.
So this is almost 2 weeks I've paid £39.99 for services I haven't received....
Auto Update has not worked for me since Update 3.70
None of my game saves have backed to the cloud automatically, trophies have not synced, and I have not received any game updates or push demos.
I tried running through the following steps (as suggested on the US Forums), but it did not help:
1) Turn Auto Updates Off
2) Set Date/Time via Internet
3) Run an Internet Connection Test
4) Sync Trophies Manually
5) Turn On Auto Updates, and set to current time
6)Turn Off Console
For reference, my console is a Slim 160GB model (not that it is seems to matter with this problem).
Any official update on this problem would be greatly appreciated.
I wonder why this issue doesn't affect all PS3 consoles out there, since this is said to be a server-side problem. Well, I guess if it comes to a fix for this, we will never know what the actual problem was.
