  1. I'm having to go into settings and do a full power down every time I switch off otherwise my external USB HDD spins up every 15 minutes or so. Wouldn't be too bad if it weren't for the bright blue LED on the enclosure that lights up when it does spin up.
  2. How many games are on the drive? It took a fair while for mine to be read and sorted ready for use (5TB drive with just over 2TB of games). I think that's what some of the "Other" folder is on the SSD - cache files for games on external drive so it can access them faster rather than searching the whole drive.
  3. From the PlayStation Support website: Version 20.02-02.26.00 1. This system software update improves system performance. 2. An issue where installed disc versions of games were sometimes deleted was resolved. 3. An issue that prevented the PS5 wireless controller from being charged while in rest mode when connected to the PS5's front side USB Type-A port using the USB cable included with some PS5 consoles was resolved.
  4. PCM. I've been round in circles. Set PS5 to Linear PCM, TV says PCM whether eArc is on or not. With eArc off I can change to Dolby and DTS and it shows the change.
  5. When using Dolby (with eArc disabled) I can hear more pronounced directionality in Astro and Spidey. With eArc on, no matter what option I choose on the PS5 or TV, the TV shows that it is outputting PCM and it sounds a bit flat.
  6. I find it sounds better. Maybe I'm imaging things...
  7. Do I? It sound quieter and less "full" than the Dolby.
  8. I've *finally* managed to get the thing to output in Dolby Digital surround. I thought eArc was supposed to be a cool, new feature for AV equipment? The last thing I did (after a reset of everything as I thought it could be a weird glitch) was turn of eArc and "pop" the banner on the LG C9 went from saying PCM to Dolby Audio. Clown shoes. Also, does anybody else's right trigger make a "boop" noise in Miles Morales when you go to shoot a web? Just before the adaptive trigger bites and he shoots the web? It isn't controller audio as I switched that off to test
  9. Different UHD film discs make the console drive louder than others. Spidey Homecoming is ridiculously loud, Ghost in the Shell (the ScarJo one) not at all. Maybe the way the disc is pressed / label side is printed causing imbalance?
  10. Mine is hooked up to my LG C9 OLED directly and the TV is connected to my Sony HT-ZF9 soundbar. Reading IGN it says that I should select AV Amplifier rather than Soundbar in the settings to actually get surround sound. They also say choose LPCM. Is that a tally better than Bitstream (Dolby)?
  11. @Fully Aspel Yeah, that shot is how it was on launch day. It's not behind the TV "side on" as it were. I've had crashes, rebuild database errors, external drive errors. The only thing I haven't had is rest mode worries because I haven't used it!
  12. I've just tried a UHD disc and had sound straight away. No Atmos is a pisser. My drive is loud! Or, the vibration of the disc spinning is loud. Glad I've got a standalone player as this is unbearable!!
  13. In order to give "The Beast" some more ventilation I moved stuff around today. Virgin V6 box is now where the PS5 was and vice versa but with the PS5 turned so it runs left to right behind the TV. If anything it now sounds louder than when it was in the smaller space. Not bad on the dash but the minute something starts to load there's a defo uptick in fan noise. Those PS4 games that made Pros sound like jets? Yeah, those are still guilty of ratcheting up the PS5 fan. Maybe one day Sony will get it right?
  14. I think you'd better check the rear of the controller.
