1. For the one labeled PS3 only. Does that mean I can download and listen to it on my PS3?

Does anyone know any sites where I can download (100% legal...yeah right) tv shows etc.. that can play on my PS3?

2. Nice to finally have some PSP/PS3 dedication via podcast. I would like to have this podcast go up a bit in bitrate, as its a bit hard on the ears sometimes. Maybe 96kbps?

Otherwise, its nice to hear some people yakking about my favorite consoles. Keep up the good work.

3. By the way, I got streaming working on my PS3. I simply installed Windows Media Player 11 on my XP machine, and went into the Sharing/DNLA setup. Worked like a charm in about ten seconds.

5. No Heroes on blu-ray, no Battlestar Galactica, they're ok shows but what about LOST?

You won't find that on HD-DVD, and LOST is far superior - just watch each season's finales this year and you'll see.

Man i'm so glad it's on blu-ray, otherwise i'd go insane, 24 is also coming on blu-ray if you're into that too.

6. Yeah the audio is TERRIBLE. 48kbit/s is NOT enough for MP3, maybe it you’d use OGG or something it would work.

Could you please create new files which can actually be listened to for an hour? This is undoable.
