    Hi folks,

    Lovin my new PS3. I have it connected to my projecter at 720p..yum yum.
    However, the operating background colour has turned from black into washy green?
    The blu ray movies play fine as do the games?
    Anyone got any clues. Is it about to break on me.

    Cheers

    Chris

    Hi Chris, this is normal. Please check the faq for an explanation of why it changes colour.

    There is talk of an update which will allow you to have your own custom background but no confirmation as yet.

    I believe the XMB background changes colour on a monthly basis. It started as pink (with black at night-time), and then gradually went from pink to green.

    Yep, it's been said on an other thread but if you change the clock to 12Midday and cycle through the months you see the colours change for each month.

    If only the PSP's background would change the same way but it'll probably take up most of the PSP's 32Mb of RAM.

    The PSP does do it... If you set "Theme" to "original", it changes with each month :)

    Was just about to ask the same question. Mate came over to have a look, turned it on and thought either it or the projector was screwed........

    Cheers
