Syncing phones to electronics isn't always useful. My phone can't do jack when bluetoothed to my media center PC and I have yet to figure out how to sync it to my car stereo. Supposedly it will mute my music when the phone rings but uh, yeah that doesn't happen lol

Then again my phone is running "Verizon POS OS version suck my balls" so that might have something to do with it.

anyone know how to turn the ps3 into a medic center? and will it play .mkv file types? or better yet what file types can it play? Apparently you can connect a USB hard drive to it, but i guess mine just does not work...

PS3 doesn't support MKV and even if it did, there's so many different video and audio formats that are used in MKV that it's unlikely it'd be able to play them all. MKV is just a container, to play whats inside you still need the correct codec. It's unlikely that the PS3 will be compatible with it until DivX 7 is released, which will use the MKV container and at least partially standardize the video format inside.

Your USB drive didn't work because the PS3 doesn't support NTFS. Which is retarded. Even the Wii media players can read NTFS partitions...

If you want to play video files, build a home theater PC. They typically run around $300 and use 1/3 the power of a PS3 when watching HD video. Mine uses around 45-50 watts when watching 1080p movies or playing MW2 on high, compared to the PS3 and XBOX which use 185 and 145 respectively during HD video playback.

The only way to make it work is to convert it to FAT32 which isn't compatible with video files larger than 4GB. Almost all HD movies are 8+ GB, with bluray rips often reaching 15-20GB.

You basically can't play HD movies from a USB drive, period.

I'll be looking into the playback of HD files from a hard drive.. I think the PS3 can play VOB files directly on a hard disk, or at least it said it required DivX registration before it would.. I know these are the files from a DVD but I don't know how blu ray and other media package their files.

I will for the moment assume that Kip is right (usually a good practice)

I need to save monies now cuz I'm moving to Charlotte...

I know JSROCKET said that he just memorized the ps3 controller but does anyone here have a ps3 and use the Blue Ray Remote Control that you have to buy?

Honestly, I've pretty much gotten used to the PS3 controller too.. but it'd be nice to have a wand.


Also, anyone have any good game recommendations? I ordered Modern Warfare, Modern Warfare 2, and Black Ops from Amazon for 80 bucks shipped.. caught a holiday deal.. but other than that all I will have is PS MOVE. And my other games don't come until the end of next week. Also I have no money.. so cheap game recommendations would be nice.
