a poor man's (portable) TV

Over in the Your Gadgets? thread at SillyDog701 Message Centre, there are some discussions about TVs. In short, DJGM bought a new Sony 32-inch Full 1080 HD TV (Sony KDL-32EX403), Mandrake has a Sony 40-inch full 1080 HD TV (this link), and our good friend Don (who hates Sony) has a 4-by-3 1080p HD CRT TV.

Well, I guess it is my turn to present my poor man's portable TV. Here it is, merely 4.3-inch non-HD display (only 480 x 272 pixels) TV:

Sony PlayTV on Sony PSP via Remote Play

No, it's not a portable media player, but it is a "TV", with the help of Remote Play enabled on my Sony PlayStation 3, and Sony PlayTV, I can watch live TV as well as recorded shows on my tiny Sony PSP (PlayStation Portable). I don't need to hook up an antenna on the PSP, but wireless network (WiFi) is required for Remote Play to work.

(The Sony PlayStation Portable has the very important invisibleSHIELD on.)

Sony PlayStation 3 together with Sony PlayTV is my poor man's TiVo. As a matter of fact, Laurent and I have been pretty busy this year, and haven't been playing games on PlayStation 3 for quite a few months. The PlayStation 3 has been powered on for TV recording tasks.

So here you go, nowhere as big as Don's 4-by-3 1080p HD CRT TV.

Allow me to conclude this entry in the same fashion:
(to Don: Antony is poor.)

Well, I guess you forgot that you have a GIGANTIC 52" LCD HDTV.

You spent too much energy on what I have, and what I spent. The PSP is so tiny compared to your HD TV.

My HDTV is so tiny compared to your HDTV. (See, this is what a logical argument sounds like!)

"My HDTV is so tiny compared to your HDTV."
I wish I could say that, except I don't have a HDTV in 4.3-inch. Still, dropping the "HD" part, my 4.3-inch (portable) TV is so tiny compared to your (HD CRT) TV!

Tiny or not, I don't even have a portable TV!

Didn't you say that you had a 2.25" screen device?

My phone, which is NOT a TV, nor is it capable of video playback in any way, shape, or form. It can't even display still images unless you don't mind four shades of gray.
