I've been reading thread after thread, seeing what the PS3 is capable of and I'm sure I'm missing out on some things. So I just want to know what you have all done to yours?
So far, I installed a 100GB Hard Drive
Formatted and installing YDL once the download finishes.
I plan on Running StreamMyGame on it (http://www.streammygame.com)
I also want to turn it into the ultimate media center.
Making backups of my games and playing them is always at the top of my list, (CD's aren't safe with kids and animals.)
in Linux you can't use the RSX. I don't like it!!! You can't play DivX&Co.!!!!
In linux i can play any movie file incl 10gb mkv ones using VLC
For divx and avi's just use the PS3 XMB.
As for console mods. Nothing much just YDL and I have a Linksys NSLU2 which i am running the Slug custom firmware and twonky media to stream all my avi goodness to the PS3.
With the latest firmware it is now a proper media centre. Some homebrew ability would be great but I am a patient man! (oh yes and the ability to play multi-region dvd's and BR's would be a nice addition)
