PS3 to support data transfer
Inside the console's latest firmware update
Sony has outlined the main features of its latest PlayStation firmware update, which includes a data transfer application.

Firmware 3.15 will let you transfer all of your saved data from one PS3 to another. We assume the update supports both the old, chunky PS3 and the slimline model – even though Sony’s picture of the feature (above) only shows the latter machine.
Content such as games, saved-game data and videos downloaded from the PlayStation Network will be automatically deleted from your old machine once you initiate the transfer, Sony staffer James Thorpe said on the firm’s PS3 blog. Personal media files – photos, music and videos – can be transferred without your old machine subsequently culling the data.
Firmware 3.15’s other exciting feature concerns Minis – those bite-size 100MB, or smaller, videogames available for the PlayStation Portable.
The update will let you play Minis on both your PSP and your PS3, Sony promised, by installing a Minis emulator onto the latter.
Minis will work on both consoles from 17 December, Sony added, which suggests that Firmware 3.15 will probably be released around the same date. ®
Liar, liar, shitty Sony laptop on fire...

Nice of you to spend so long trawling back posts, as it happens, I bought my PS3 last month. That post is 2 months old.. Clearly you are not smart enough to comprehend that... Got a great deal too £199 for a 120GB PS3 Slim from Sainsburys.
Avoid the free servers, they are free for a reason, they work, just about, but generally aren't very good. Give TwonkyMedia a try, it streams MKV just fine for me. It costs £20 or so (there is a 50% off promo at the moment I believe).
What mediaserver do you use? I use PS3mediaserver, a decent PC and gigabit. I have problems with HD mkv especially when seeking or using the preview (square button). Sometimes they refuse to play even when the codec is supported. I have no problems using mkv2vob but it would be nice not to jump through the extra hoop of converting.
So refusing to support mkv will stop piracy? Popcorn Hour anyone?

Trophy sync was a server capacity problem, there are ALOT of new PSN accounts this year (PS3 hit 30m console recently, and unlike Microsofts numbers, virtually all those are still working).
The Trophy Sync problem was fixed last week with a PSN capacity upgrade, I had this problem at busy times of day, but it's since gone...
