    I don't seem to understand the point

    TV on a PS3... that you are already playing on a TV - that already shows channels ... or is there more to it

    What would be nice is a usb hd sat receiver for the PS3 as it certainly has the power to handle this and could be a cheap way to access the BBC HD channel

    Presumably the PS3 could act as a PVR:confused:

    This is why I am very interested in getting it running, the PS3 would handle HD with ease (BBC HD) :clap:

    I saw a youtube video a while back of some German guys that had MythTv running on a PS3 with a USB DVB-T antenna. Seemed to work pretty well, I think with most things on PS3 linux, the bottleneck will be that access to the GPU is limited.
