PlayTV

I treated myself to playTV a few weeks ago. It’s an excellent piece of hardware for the PS3. Plug your aerial into it, plug it into your PS3, install some software and voila. Pause, rewind and record Freeview onto your PS3 HDD. I wouldn’t bother getting a PS3 and playTV just for this functionality, but if you already have a PS3 it’s well worth it. The picture quality is vastly improved from the built in Freeview tuner in my Samsung TV. I assume this is because the PS3 upscales the picture, but I can’t find anywhere on the internet that confirms this. Visit the wiki entry for playTV to get the lowdown on its full capabilities.
