Re: Tips for maintaining and maximizing your PlayStation Home connectivity

I must say that I do these things. and that other should too. and read this cause it might help with freezes and other errors.

 I just wanna point out that step 6, although is correct that these things will not be effected, for those that collect fossils at Granzella Hideaway, all your fossils that HAVE NOT been apraised are stored in your cache.

 

 Just so you know.   : )

Re: Tips for maximizing your PlayStation Home connectivity

I was recently shown what is slowing down Home for me. Is it your connection or is it your console? Home is over 12 GB now. So it takes up a lot more memory and space on your HD then it used to. The current HD in this console is just not fast enough. When a friend told me about a not so new solid state hard drive and how it improved his experience in Home. I got the Seagate Momentus XT 500 GB 2.5 Inch Solid State Hybrid Drive.

 

This HD has made a night and day difference with my experience in Home. I load every thing 2X faster. I have a very large inventory in Home. I now get to everything really fast. I have over 500 pictures on my HD getting them to my Home picture frames is a breeze now. Getting to GZ beach loads up in seconds. Don't take my word for this take a look for yourself. Just so you know it's not just your connection anymore...

That's a good set of general rules, but you missed the obvious one. The most effective solution for wireless users is to bridge the router.

If the thread is redundant, and you know it has been covered more thoroughly before in a previous thread, why is this thread stickied instead of the more thorough one?

Some additional steps that have helped me have a smoother ride in Home, in the XMB, under games, in game data utility, deleting the home file, deleting this will not mess up any space or avatar saves. You will just have to redownload spaces as you enter them. So if your not using older spaces why keep them downloaded? Like i said you wont lose your saves. 

Also a second option which has worked for me in the past, a few months back while experiencing some error codes and problems downloading spaces in Home i found that doing the start up playstation maintenance window.

Option #3  helped me chase out corrupt files which led to a perfectly running home after that point.    :manhappy:

The goal I had in mind when I was writing this was to provide a quick-reference list of tips that was more specifically geared to Home users, as opposed to the greater PlayStation pantheon. My guess is that not all of the Home forum users explore the other PlayStation forums here, so I figured it couldn't hurt to put together a slightly more Home-centric list of tips that addressed a lot of common connectivity problems to the Home application and would save the more Home-oriented users here a bit of time.

 

It's sort of like -- and this isn't an exact analogy -- how some products have a detailed technical manual and a quick-reference list, designed to tackle common questions and save the consumer the trouble of digging through the whole book to find the answer. I was (pleasantly) surprised when it was stickied, but if I had to guess -- and the general feedback so far seems to support this -- it's because it's serving its intended function as a quick-reference guide, written in layman's terminology that doesn't require an IT certification to understand, which might help a user out in a quick and easy fashion. It certainly won't solve every problem, and more digging through the PlayStation forums will turn up far more comprehensive information geared to a broader spectrum of users and issues, but it hopefully serves a purpose as another layer of support for the user.

 

On a personal front, I wrote this because it's the sort of list I wish someone had written for me. I'm not the most technologically sophisticated guy in the world -- and living on an outer island in Polynesia that's thirty years behind the mainland brings its share of technical headaches -- but I'm a do-it-yourself type who gets impatient when I have to sift through mountains of support materials and phone calls to tech support. Since several of Home's connectivity problems can be easily and quickly solved by the user -- something as simple as clearing the Home cache works wonders -- I figured there had to be more forum users who would benefit from having this sort of down-and-dirty "common solutions" checklist available as a resource. Hopefully it's serving that goal.

 

What's awesome is that some of the responses to this thread have offered additional solutions and ideas, which makes it even more valuable to the Home community. If we can collectively help each other out, then we've all done some good with this.
