Thanks for the info. Soon hopefully I will be getting a decent HD flat
panel and baneshing my noisy myth backend to the loft. I was thinking
about potentially building a quite sleek frontend to go with the new
tv, and connect to the noisy backend. However the cost of building my
own is going to be similar to a PS3 and as I said the PS3 plays Blue
Ray and not forgetting games too.

We don't have any HD over DVB-T here yet and there's not much
interesting HD content available free to air on DVB-S either yet
(although that's likely to change). So it would be mostly SD playback
which it sounds like the PS3 is just about up to. I will check back on
the status of it as I get closer to owning one. May be even try to
help improve it when I finally get one.

Thanks again for the info.
