Cool, this makes it a must buy, i can record it then rip it to a DVD on my PC or put it on my iPod :D

This is awesome news, and the last bit of information I wanted to hear before nailing down my decision to purchase a PlayTV box.

What I like to do is record a show and then, for some shows, save the whole season before I watch it. I would rather not buy a special hard drive for my PS3 to do it, but move those to my PC (over the network) and let them accumulate there for later viewing.
