    I wonder whether the media manager will work with v1.5? ;)

    Looks increasingly like it won't work on less than V2.0 due to support for AVI, MPG, WMV etc.

    Am I right in thinking the Sony Media manager won't be able to convert DVD's (like pspvideo9) as it doesn't mention support for VOB file?

    The neuros thing looks interesting.

    Well, I just bought the software and it states (upon installing it) that 2.0 is a minimum requirement! Also, I pointed the video encoder to a folder containing a vob file and it didn't recognise the file at all, so don't throw pspvideo9 away just yet!

    I converted an avi file from my PC (a short video i took with a digital camera) and the quality is excellent. It encoded the file direct to the PSP at 320x240. So no full resolution support either.

    Its handy for keeping things tidy and the backup feature is good. The music options automatically list the iTunes folder as well as the general My Music folder in windows! The music encoder only encodes to mp3, which is a bit crap.

    Haven't really looked at any other features yet.

    One thing I did notice is that when transferring audio it will setup separate folders in Music section of the PSP and group similar items (ie albums or podcasts) together. Haven't seen this before. The podcast folder contained the clip art as the icon for the folder within the music section, but the CD didn't include any art. Not sure if there is a way to get this through the software or not.

    Just bought one of these for my son. We'll see how well it works over the Christmas holiday.

    Sounds fairly straightforward to use but only records in real time which I expect will prove to be the major drawback.

    I was looking at the new Sony HDD DVD recorders the 710 and the 910. What a shame Sony didn't fit an MPEG chip and Memory Stick slot. How useful would that have been!

    If they're frightened of mobile video and MPEG4 what's the ****ing point of selling us PSPs?

    No need unless games stipulate it or you desperately want to download those video shorts at 480x272

    Fars as I know current games only need 2.0, so you can still downgrade at your leisure
