In Canada, AppleTV rentals are also 48 hours. I can't explain the difference between USA and Canada for iTunes, but the USA is only 24 hours.The Rental period for PSN rentals is 48 hours once viewed and 2 weeks availability if you do not intend to watch immediately, compared to 24 hours and 1 month for Apple TV.
I agree. No option to purchase HD is a bummer although the movie is locked to that one device. I'm not sure how I feel about that. Perfect scenario for managed copy. (comon, make it happen!)Uhh, there is an Xbox Live video store in Canada as well, been around for a long time now.
There is however no purchase option on Xbox, however, since PSN's is only for the SD movies right now, I consider it a useless feature. It would be nice if they both had the buy option for HD content.
What is your receiver, and how is it connected to the PS3?I couldn't get the audio to work properly. There seems to be 2 tracks in the file, one is AAC and the other one stereo. The AAC is 5.1 but since my receiver does not decode AAC the PS3 seems to simply downmix it to stereo. If anyone has a suggestion I all ears. Do I need to get a new receiver?
I don't think the PS3 "converts" DTSMA to anything besides PCM. If you are using optical, it just sends the "DTS" part of DTS-MA (it is a subset of the full signal which can be easily picked out). If you do convert to PCM, you will only get 2-channel PCM through optical (optical can't handle 5-channel PCM)I was hoping the PS3 could convert it to something my receiver can decode, but leave it 5.1... I think it does that with other codecs like DTSMA.
The biggest thing that irks me is that most newer movies are only available for rent for a short period of time. They come on as rental for one to two months and then you can't rent anymore. iTunes does that a lot and I know it's not iTunes' fault, but it's very frustrating. I bought a PS3 this weekend and already I find the same thing on most new movies.In Canada, AppleTV rentals are also 48 hours.
