Sony upscales PS3's PlayTV to HD

Also adds Aino 'PlayStation phone' support

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Sony has released an update for the PlayStation 3 Play TV tuner unit enabling it to better serve the needs of HD buffs and mobile maniacs.

Version 1.21 of the unit's software lets you watch, pause and record HD TV over a DVB-T standard broadcast, Sony said, and makes it possible to simultaneously watch and record free digital HD channels.

The update also supposedly provides “better standard definition upscaling”, Sony added, so that when you are watching SD channels on an HD screen they look “as good as they possibly can”.

Sony hasn’t released any resolution-related figures, of course.

Last, but not least. The update optimises PlayTV’s interface for use with Sony Ericsson’s Aino ‘PlayStation’ handset - which enables gamers to browse the PS3’s XMB user interface, access content stored on the console’s HDD and more.

Further information about the PlayTV update and details about how to download it can be found online now. ®
