    You can make your setup 'geekier'

    1. Make sure you PC and console are on the same network (wired or wireless)
    2. Run a DLNA compliant media server on your PC
    3. Your PS3 can act as a client and will be able to read all videos/audio on your computer
    4. Download cool 720p stuff on your comp and auto-stream it wirelessly to your PS3 (coupled with large screen TV) :cool:

    edit: :hmm: you mentioned a media server in your first post

    Already running a media server, ps3-pc now though I am facing cinavia issues :facepalm:

    So this will not be my primary movie watching server.

    Planning to do something about wdtv live media server, waiting for the wifi dongle.

    What are your tv and ipod models ? Use twonky media server to Wirelessly connect if you have a dlna compliant TV. If not then order the cables from ebay or flipkart.

    Everything I do is geeky, every day is a new adventure, new experience and a bigger "Mess". With added distinction of being "unattractive" I feel closer to the "Nerds".
