Do anything with PS3's PlayTV recordings

100°
366w ago - A producer at Sony who is working on the software for the PlayTV device, revealed today that there is no copy protection in place and no time limit on how long you can keep PlayTV recordings.

Users will be able to move the MPEG-2 video files from the PlayTV interface to the PS3's home menu and then from there onto a storage device (memory stick, external HD or PC).

To quote: It will be possible to export TV recordings made with PS3's forthcoming digital TV receiver in a standard file format and store them anywhere you like, Sony explained today.

Mark Bunting, a producer at Sony's Cambridge Studio, which is working on the software for the PlayTV device, showed how the MPEG-2 video files could be moved from the PlayTV interface to the PS3's home menu.

From there, they can be moved to another storage device such as a memory stick, backup hard drive or PC. There is no copy protection in place and no time limit on how long the recording can be kept.

Overhaul of net addresses begins

369w ago - The first big steps on the road to overhauling the net's core addressing system have been taken.

On Monday the master address books for the net are being updated to include records prepared in a new format known as IP version 6.

Widespread use of this format will end the shortage of addresses that sites can be given.

The net's current addressing scheme is expected to exhaust the pool of unallocated addresses by 2011.

Short stack

Although people use words to navigate around the web, computers use numbers. A human may type news.bbc.co.uk into a browser bar but the PC trying to reach that site will use a numerical equivalent that it gets from the net's master address books.

At the moment the vast majority of numerical net addresses are written in a format specified by version 4 of the Internet Protocol (IPv4).

On 4 February the master or root servers for the net will have a small number of records added that are written in IP version 6 (IPv6) added to them.

This means for the first time that computers using IPv6, typically a PC and a server, can find each other without involving any IPv4 technology.

Paul Twomey, president of Icann which oversees the addressing system, told the BBC News website there was a need...
