    At the weekend Amazon were selling it for ?69.99 but it seems to have vanished again.

    But i think it looks cool as.

    i dont understand sony with this,why would anybody pay 70 for a glorified freeview box

    i like the idea in theory but it could be done so much cheaper,sony obviously hasnt learned any lessons from the original pricing of the ps3

    I would have to agree with that as you can buy a freeview pvr for less then ?70.00 now.

    Waste of cash in my opinion. It would be much better if the tv came over the LAN without the need of any external box.

    I was really excited for this but purely for the epg and recording function cause it seems that remote play via th net isnt great and the responsivity going through the xmb has some delay... streamings fine but going through menus quikly and setting stuff up can be a bit of a struggle...

    so if it uses the same kinda inferstructure Im prolly gonna leave it rather then it being a 1st day purchase which at one time it was.

    and now they have removed what was probably the best feature by taking away the ability to transfer what you recorded anyware

    The problem with play tv is that you cant move what you have recorded on the hardrive to a usb stick or pc!!!! Pointless.

    I may not want to record at times, so a reminder function would be ideal.
