Does this support both of the tuners in the PlayTV hardware?
Nah their not out in Australia yet, but you can get one from the UK, go to the Whirlpool.net.au forums and theirs a massive thread on PlayTV and a list of places to get them from.
I tried installing the drivers tonight, and I'm able to stream DVB content through PlayTV using VLC ... but whenever I try setting up TV in media center it crashes and reports "Media Center stopped working".
Any one got any ideas on what the problem could be? Or an alternative to media center that might work ... something more usable than VLC?
I've modded the Beta 64-bit drivers to work with the PlayTV too. I've only tested it on Windows 7 x64 but it should work fine under Vista x64 too.
Windows Media Center detects both tuners and works perfectly under Windows 7 x64 build 7000.
Same procedure as Gringo.
Download: Sony PlayTV (Win64) Driver
Download the Driver: http://cdn.pinnaclesys.com/SupportFi...80e/64_bit.zip (Pinnacle 64bit). [file is also attached below]
- Overwrite the original PCTVDIB64.INF inside the Archive.
- Plug the PlayTV and load the Driver.
Very nice roberthunt87 and THANKS for sharing it with us. I will mention it in a Site News update tonight, and have also moved you to the PS3 Dev group for your contribution.
i have down loaded the driver, it says overwrite archive.. how do i do this?
It means when you extract the files from both archives to your desktop, copy and paste the new single .inf file over the old and click 'Yes' to the prompt to overwrite them.
i've dl the play tv demo on my european account what else do i need? do i need a computer or is playTV something that i can use on PS3 by it's self?
