Hi all, 

 

To confirm Cinavia is a content protection system used by many devices including the PS3 to help combat piracy. Any workaround you do is at your own risk. 

 

Further reading can be found here 

 

Obviously its frustrating but its not something that can be turned off.

Some people. If you or anybody can buy the equipment to play movies and games on, then you can afford to buy the price of an orignal copy of a game or disk.

one way to crack this code and it works but you will have to do it every 20mins reset the date on your ps3 to an eariler time and after the error comes up again change it back again to the real date and time,this will work!! haha you can't stop us cinavia....

One thing Sony need to think about is, how many people use their PS3s to watch pirated media? Then how many people will buy another media player i.e. PS4 that hinders their media playback requirements. I think I might be Googling for another media player without Cinevia restrictions...

Usually when I choose a games console I look at what games I might like to play on it over anything else.
Maybe I'm old fashioned here and things have moved, I don't know.

Why should sony let the ps3 run pirate films ?

And as the ps3 is their machine they are in a position to do as they please with it as they have done with every console they have released why should things be any different now.

It's in Sony's interest to have the anti piracy software on the PS3, Since they own Columbia-Tristar. They are only protecting the property of one of their subsidiaries.

you can normally find films that have cinavia protection without it, and its not too difficult either.

and the price of blu-rays is coming down all the time, HMV have finally (well almost) seen the light and you can find some good deals there, if not online.

and getting films on blu-ray is much better as the picture/ sound is awesome compared to downloaded films

Guys, I hope this works for you....

 

on your Windows Media Player, Click the

 

[ Stream ] ----> [ Allow remote control ] ------> [ Automatically allow device ] 

 

( for me it works to prevent the Code 3 of cinavia, I think this set up will use the codecs of your Windows Media Player ) so the Cinavia Code 3 will not appear on your ps3 ) I'm not 100% sure about this thing but still I'm testing it, so I hope it will last......

 

 

God Bless Us All..... :))
