From ps3mods.blogspot.com:


With Linux and the Plextor ConvertX DVR - turn your PS3 into a Personal Video Recorder!

The Plextor ConvertX PVR model PX-TV402U is the ultimate personal video recorder for the PC. The PX-TV402U allows you to connect to a satellite TV, cable TV or broadcast TV signal and record programs to your PC. You can then watch the video from the PC or burn it to DVD for playback on a DVD player. You can also connect a camcorder, VCR or DVD player to record home videos to the PC. The heart of the PX-TV402U is its multi-format encoder chip which converts video to the DivX, MPEG-4, MPEG-2 and MPEG-1 formats as it is being recorded to the PC.

The PX-TV402U is the world's first DivX Certified PVR. Recording video in the DivX format gives users the ability to record 3 times as much video as normal without sacrificing quality. It also gives you the ability to record video into resolutions perfectly suited for playback on portable and handheld devices. The PX-TV402U contains an integrated high quality TV tuner to assure the highest quality video. The PX-TV402U is an external USB 2.0 device which connects to a PC running Windows 2000 or Windows XP.

I was wondering how long it would be before they had MythTV out for the PS3

the PX-TV402U PVR adds a bit of cost to it though... at $200+you could easily just have a stand alone unit with similar storage... a couple hundred more and you can make a dedicated MythTV box with 3 or 4 times the storage.

exactly! and throw that box in the basement where it nicely can make noise, and meanwhile use the ps3 as a mythtv frontend... This news sucks tough, since its not news... same shit couldve been done with the original xbox, both being a frontend and a actual standalone... usb 1.1 would be slow tough, but hey, xbox1 is old hardware...
