Sony PlayTV has arrived
I have been waiting for PlayTV for quite a long time, and I got it finally.
Now, I can watch, pause, and record digital TV on my Sony PlayStation 3 with PlayTV. It's actually, I can also watch live (or recorded) TV on my PSP anywhere WiFi is available.
Setting up Sony PlayTV is pretty much straight forward. Some of you might need to get a spliter and feed the TV signal (aerial) to Sony PlayTV. However, I simply decided to unplug the TV signal (aerial) for the VCR/DVD recorder, and plug that one to the PlayTV. Since we bought Sony Bravia TV last year, we haven't been watching VHS tapes (we have been watching DVDs on that VCR/DVD player still) since, nor any recording done on that (All TV recording were done with the EyeTV Diversity on my iMac).
After setting up the PlayTV, I tested my PSP's Remote Play feature. It really works as advertised, I can watch live TV (or recorded) TV on PSP's screen, as long as PSP is in the WiFi range, and the main PlayStation 3 is on. I will have to test if I can access the PlayTV content from outside my network.
Benefits of watching TV on PSP instead of on the Sony 52-inch Bravia TV? Well, for one, we only have one TV (to Don: Antony is poor), and I can't move the TV to any room I want. PSP is without a doubt, very portable.
My EyeTV Diversity can record two digital channels at the same time, and plus this PlayTV, I can record three digital TV signals at the same time.
