A few updates ago, Sony included Cinavia protection on their Sony Playstation 3 and it’s been a love-hate relationship ever since. While you can find hundreds of posts about how to get rid of Cinavia protection from your Playstation 3 by patching it to an older update, or there’s some kind of sketchy software plugin I found that seemed to be a complete scam, I’ve only found one way to quickly get rid of it temporarily.
Just change the date on your PS3. That easy,
When you are watching a movie and the sound cuts out and you get the Cinavia warning, simply pause the movie (X) and back out to the main menu (O) and then slide over to settings > date and time and advance the year by one. Then go back to movies > media server > movie folder and play your movie. It will start back off where you paused it and the sound will be re-enabled until the next watermark. Do bear in mind this is only temporary and you will have to do this every time the Ps3 hits a Cinavia watermark, which seems to be about 4 or 5 times per movie. It’s annoying, but hey at least you can finish your movie!
