    News - Sony brings high-def TV broadcasts to PS3 with latest PlayTV update

    PlayTV users can now watch, pause and record high-definition TV. There's a catch, though.

    I've just updated to the latest software. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like the upscaling has been improved much at all..

    In all honesty, the built-in scaling of my TV (Pioneer KRL-32V) does a much better job of taking the picture to 1080p, however, the UI is much nicer..

    Yeah, I just updated and again the up scaling isn't anything to write home about in terms of improvement.

    However the sound is way, way better for me. When listening to audio direct from my TV sent into my home cinema (in Dolby PL2) it sounds flat and the imaging is really poor. From the PS3/Play TV it's like night and day. Brilliant surround (albeit 'fake') and imaging.
