There were new HDMI Power "functions" added to this update.

I'm surprised the PS5 turned off completely instead of going into sleep/standby mode (and presumably not stopping the transfer)

It might have gone to sleep. Would that have not screwed everything up? I will check.

Hmm... maybe it does stop the transfer of data. I know it allows you to download update data but maybe that's a little different.

Also there are lots of caveats about standby mode (unless they've fixed them) but I would've just thought that the default would be to put your system on standby if HDMI controlled and not shut down completely.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Well I checked and it didn't mess anything up it just stopped the transfer at three of the five games I attempted to move. So crisis averted.
So the lesson is don't move a lot of content at once unless you plan on just leaving your TV on and unused for a while. I still think it's faster to move content than to download it, but it still takes a while.

You can probably change the HDMI settings on your PS5 to allow it to stay on when your tv turns off.

Yeah, this is set at Settings > System > HDMI > Enable HDMI Device Link. Just make sure the toggle is off (set to the left), and this annoyance will be a thing of the past. For now, anyway; I already had it disabled, but this system update reverted it back to being on.

From what I heard, if you were one of the people that received the email, it would be shipped the next day regardless of whether you sent money or not.

Eh. It was a dollar and the email and fine print made me laugh. Was worth it.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

For those that may not know, the new update finally gives the ability to turn off forced HDR on non-HDR games. Just go to settings and change HDR from "Always On" to "On when supported". Big thumbs up for this update, as it was a pain having to manually switch off HDR every time when playing an SDR game.

It looks exactly the same just a different color.

Glad you're happy with the outcome. I like the original color enough and never thought it looked like shit.

It... Kinda looks like that tattoo that one forum member got, and then all the jerks here made fun of him, and then he just stopped posting. Remember that? That's what that PS5 looks like.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I think it looks good, we have a white entertainment stand and all our other systems are black so we'll probably do this once we can find one.
