Work around for Cinavia on PS3 by changing the time settings

Here are 2 work arounds for Cinavia.  Both use the same method of changing the time settings.

Method 1 (longer but preserves time settings):

  • Play until the Cinavia banner kicks in (after about 20mins).
  • Quit the movie, and go to date/time settings.
  • Set the time one hour back.
  • Resume playback and the Cinavia banner will kick in again.
  • Quit movie again and go back to date/time.
  • Correct the time by moving the hour forward.
  • Resume playback and you’ll get another 20 mins.


Method 2:

  • Play until the Cinavia banner kicks in (after about 20mins).
  • Quit the movie, and go to date/time settings.
  • Change the time zone to any other and change the date to a different date (say 2042)
  • Resume playback and you’ll get another 20 mins.
