Default Play TV...Australia as the guinea pig

Just after the release of Vidzone there has been another anouncementfor playTV and at this stage we are looking a October this year Article

Australia is going to be the test ground for the HD device as the UK version is SD

My question is though if it records in HD then there will be issues of HD capacity and it will be interesting to see if it will record to a SB device or whether Im going to have to do the HDD upgrade

It will have to be able to record SD and HD as different channels transmit either SD or HD.

As to HDD upgrade, even if it was only SD I would recommend a Hard Drive upgrade. It does not take long to fill up, especially with gaming content.

Interesting question. I would like to find that out as well ... and what format it records in.

If I find out I will post it here. Click is the resident PS3 guru; he might know?

Recording format is MPEG-2, and they may add MPEG-4 in the future. File size is roughly 1 GB per hour.

You can't record to an external hard drive (due to the transfer speeds, it would cause stuttering) but there's no DRM restrictions of any type, so you can transfer files to the XMB, then to an external drive, then to a PC.

It's pretty cool though it can record while you're playing and apparently has no noticeable effect on the game.

I hope this little device works well as it was the big selling point to the missus as to why we just had to have a ps3...

I nominate George as the host of the show ... he can share Shelly's wardrobe from Australia's funniest home videos!
