PS3 PVR Tutorial

Filed under Video Game Hardware Hacking

So I just got a PS3 and have been looking at all the cool things you can do with it…since you can run Linux on a PS3 (Yellowdog, Gentoo, etc..). One of the things you can turn your PS3 into is a PVR and record TV shows. There is a great site that shows you how to do this here. Looks like all you need is the following:

* Gentoo Linux Install
* MythTV
* Plextor ConvertX PX-M402U – TV
* Micronas GO7007 Linux Driver

Lots of good PS3 hacks on this site as well (homebrew). MythTV is similar to Freevo in that it is an open source PVR. Very cool…I am thinking of formating the PS3 and installing Gentoo at least. I’ll provide a review if this all works out! 🙂
