NZtechfreak: I got mine Tuesday, its delivery was delayed a couple of days by the strike, but I believe strike action shouldn't pose delays at the present time.
Jaxson: It's my secret hope that once more people have this and Windows 7 media centre up and running there may be a stronger case for freeview to step off their high horse and broadcast more EIT data on the DVB-T service so these cool technologies actually work for us!
Jaxson: I've definitely notices some pixelation/break up stuttering on TV3. It's happened twice now, but only under these conditions : ..

Jaxson: I've only noticed this on actual HD programs, so maybe the PS3 is struggling to do both, not sure.

I have scheduled an HD program like CSI Miami to record and have decided to watch the first 20 mins or something, so have been watching the same channel whilst it has been recording. I've only noticed this on actual HD programs, so maybe the PS3 is struggling to do both, not sure.
Could others try this one night for me please? I'm not sure if it happened prior to upgrading the Hard drive, because I've haven't really watched under these circumstances often.
Also, I've missed the starts and ends of a few programs when booking them via the EPG directly. I had thought/assumed/hoped that when booked this way the recording would start via the EPG now/next info changing over to the next show, but it seems that even booking through the EPG still just sets a time based entry. So now I do add some extra time at the start and the end of the recording, even when it's not a full manual entry.
wilt64: One thing I am looking into (to change the subject) is a DVB-T modulator and run a blu-ray player or MyskyHD into it so PlayTV will see it as another mux......could be a bit of fun!!
Jaxson, I see you bought the WD 500GB. Where'd you buy yours from? Anyway if I wait a month or more prices will get even cheaper I suppose.
Jaxson: I got mine from notebookcity I think it was, as they had a cheap price on the harmony/ps3 adaptor, but in the end they found they didn't have it in stock anyway. Pricespy is your friend, but pconlineshop.co.nz had it really cheap, bout $130 including gst, not including freight.
