Hey Guys, I have decided to get rid of mysky because the only things we ever seem to watch/record are on freeview anyway. I have also noticed that the sky content has taken a drastic dive over the last year and have come to the conclusion that its no longer with the $60 per month.

I have a Sony PS3 and was wondering about the PS3 PlayTV (+/- $100) functionality. I have read that there are some flaws with recording, the Freeview guide etc.. This seems like quiet a cheap option for a freeview PVR and I am keen to hear from those of you that have used this device, and how it compares to mysky for ease of use.

Our kids have a DishTV T1020 (About $120) with external hard drive which does the job pretty well and I would be quiet happy with this basic functionality for our main TV too. There were quiet a few bugs with this unit in the beginning but most seemed to have been ironed out by now.

So just trying to decide on a new T1020, or the Play TV option. Really keen to hear from anybody that uses PlayTV

Do you have a freeview enabled TV or would you be using PlayTV as your everyday TV device?

Jaxson: Do you have a freeview enabled TV or would you be using PlayTV as your everyday TV device?

Yes have a freeview enabled TV. So don't mind the unit being a single tuner.

Just want to be able to record, series link shows etc..
