PlayTV saved files no longer transferable - Sony: HD signals not recordable at launch

Sony has told Eurogamer that PlayTV will not allow saved video files be transferred to PSP, PC, or memory sticks.

Instead, the PS3 telly-recorder will only be able to stream live or recorded content to your PSP using remote play functionality.

Sony Cambridge, the studio making the software for PlayTV, had told us there was no copy protection or time restrictions on the standard format recordings, which could be moved freely onto all manner of storage devices.

I still hope they can bring this to the US though, those out there using a cable card with no cable box could make use of this for the channel guide along with the dvr being an added bonus.

No they can't, as it only has a receiver for DVBT, no way to link the cable to it. And there is no DVBT broadcasting at all in the US = useless box

That doesn't mean they can't release a DVB-C PlayTV for cable (both needed in US and Europe). Or a DVB-T/C for that matter.

Just like all the LCD TV's in Europe only had DVB-T in the begining, but now half of them has both DVB-T and DVB-C.

No HD signals yet?

on, a patch cud fix that though it shud been available at launch.
ALso i understand the copying thing, but they shud make it at least transferable to PSP instead of just remote play.

Well PlayTV only offers you freeview channels, none of which are even in HD for the next few years so I dont see that as a problem.
