ThreeSpeech will have Leipzig Gaming Convention news to tell next week, including some clarification on the digital TV tuner.
what does this mean for a ps3 owner?
Hopefully it doesn't require a hardware update, only a software update. Purchasing new hardware to enable this function would be a better solution, though not as good as a free function that people can just download (or better yet, something included in the next firmware update).
PS3 gets better everytime I see it yet again without a doubt....Rock on my beloved PS3
My PC capture card + external HDD does the job just fine. And I can playback my shows on my PS3 just the same.
I wonder if it will be some USB attachment, or if it will use the wireless card thing inside the ps3 itself... either way im getting it, as long as its not over 100 bucks =D
TV Tunner... you have to be kidding me... for what? Local channels? Can someone following this... answer..what's the point of adding TV Tunner... will this work over the internet? Do I still have to pay cable service? I have media center (Vista ultimate) and though it has tv tunner... I rather to pay an extra 5-$8 just to get DVR from my cable provider... I am not going to say this TV tunner for the PS3 sucks... because I don't much about it.. and it can turn out to be the best thing since Television.... but It sounds like just another gimick just to try to add another features to the long list of extra things that the PS3 can do.
You have no PS3.
"I am not going to say this TV tunner for the PS3 sucks... because I don't much about it.."
Has that stopped you from bashing the PS3 in the past?
"but It sounds like just another gimick just to try to add another feature"
You mean like HDD, wifi adapter, battery packs, HD-DVD drive?
I wouldn't mind watching my Dolphins or Bucs playing their Sunday games while I'm travelling around the coutry with my PSP. Or accessing live RSS fees on the fly. Ya I think there's a use. You'd have to try to shut it down to prove there isn't a use for HPTV tuners, since we're all gettin hit with them anyay next February. Don't fear change, it's unbecoming.
Now if they can get it past the Networks, FCC, and the CRTC. I'm definately getting a PS3 for Christmas.
lol how does iptv work
