Unhappy PS3 acting odd after update last night

I put the newest update on last night, now my PS3 is acting a little strange. It seems to dim the picture randomly while browsing the menu, also it freezes when going into Folding@Home, I can power the system down, by holding the power button, but it takes awhile and beeps a few times in the process.

Anyone else noticing issues?

Yeah I have experianced acouple issues with the recent update aswell. I had the XMB settings reset on me after my system rebooted after quiting a game (rather then going to XMB it just reset the console).

I also had it lock up during browsing a memory card.

New firmware will be out by next week so no worries. The PS3 will be updated to Blu-Ray Profile 2.0 and support BD-Live.

Woot! That is awesome...I think I won't update until that one hits...Assuming I can get this new damn Fios router to even work...Right now I'm bypassing the router because yesterday I spent 2 hours trying to get internet and it wouldn't.

**OT** Sorry...Just wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts on this...I can log into the router (so my PC can see the router), the router's internet light is green (as in good), and I can get internet by connecting fios directly to my PC. But through the router, no luck...I'll try again tonight when I'm off work...Doesn't make much sense...
