Fix the Cinavia error message 1 & 3 for your PS3 and BluRay with this easy method. I'll go through the non-working methods and include a link at the bottom for the only working legit bypass for this error! And then I'll let you enjoy your movies - With sound! An easy step-by-step guide is included at the bottom!

What is Cinavia and how does it work?

Have you ever experienced something like this: “I was streaming a movie called the losers from comp to my ps3 after about 25 minutes the audio muted and i got a message cineavia muted ur audio signal due to copyrighted restrictions. I paused the movie for about 30 seconds then audio came back.

then after 15 seconds audio went of again adn the same messages was displayed has anybody had these problems and is there something to do with the problem" If you have, you've experienced the annoyance of having Cinavia featured on your Playstation 3 console. Cinavia is a new protection that help fight piracy. This protection is not any ordinary protection that can be removed by software such as AnyDVD HD or DVDFab HD. They've watermarked the audio, so they can tell what movie you are playing - And stop the playback if it's not officially released yet.

So if you've downloaded a movie, a pirated bootleg version - Cinavia might stop you. Even if it's recorded using a camera or a line-in from a movie theater. But don't worry there is a solution to this!

I've read you can change audio cables to make it work?

No. Nope. That won't work. From the Cinavia technical pages and other technical sites; all later editions PS3 and bluray players have Cinavia drm built-in via hardware and ENABLED. (time will tell whether this continues on a permanent basis) Read that as HARDWARE ENABLED, so unless you are an engineer and plan on extensive re-design of the boards to remove the drm chips, logic circuitry, etc Firmware will not cut it either if that is your next idea.

1. Cinavia checks the media inserted.

2. if legit retail/copy, hardware enables both audio and video circuitry and movie plays normally.

3. if NOT legit retail/copy then the hardware disables audio circuitry and movie will NOT play audio through any connector!!!

Whether you get the warning screen with video but no audio or just the warning screen is different for various players out there now. None of them will allow any of the audio connectors to work since Cinavia drm shuts off the circuitry.

So WHERE is the working method?

Right now, there are two methods which works. One site has them online, but in order to keep them relatively secret I won't publish them here. Easy step-by-step guide:

Here is the first WORKING Cinavia fix (NEW! as of July 2012)

Good luck! And enjoy those PS3 movies - with audio!
