It sounds like the Playstation Home install is corrupted. I would delete it from the hard drive and download/install it again. If that doesn't solve the problem, there is also the possibility that it could be a bug in the Playstation Home software. I doubt that your PS3 is at fault. Are you able to play any other games downloaded from the PSN network?

If you can play other games and movies OK, then it is possibly PlayStation Home (the software), or the PlayStation Home disk.

Have you played/used Home before? If the disk worked before and does not work now, you may need to clean the disk.

I use a microfiber cloth and cool (not hot) bottled water to clean my DVDs and CDs. I have never cleaned a Blu-Ray disk, but that should work as well or better, due to the harder surface on the Blu-Ray disks

It is also possible that your PS3 lens is dirty - try cleaning it with either a CD lens cleaner disk, a DVD lens cleaner disk, or a Blu-Ray lens cleaner disk.

If the disk is brand new, and you clean the disk and the PS3 lens, and you still have the freeze booting up Home, then try exchanging the disk for a new PlayStation Home disk.

Here in the US, almost every store will exchange a new disk for free for 2-4 weeks after purchase when you have your receipt.

I was speaking to PSN support earlier, it seems to be a common problem, its happening to me, but it will let me into home on my old account, it just freezes on my main account. The guy in support said this was common too. He said they are working on the problem and thought it would be fixed in the next couple of days. He suggested clearing my cache, obviously by accessing home by my old account but it didn't work for me.
