OzMods states, to quote: "The final units have been delayed for everyone, not just us. So they should ship to us from China in a couple of days. The delay was due to them coding a new backup manager and locking their device to this manager, so that if anyone tries to clone, they can't use the software."

Yup this works well. I just stream via ps3 media server all my HD content including mkv's which I make myself from Blu Rays. Love that little program. One thing it has to be hard wired or forget about streaming any HD content.
MKV support would be sooo awesome!! Yea, I can watch MKV video on my laptop, but the PS3 has HDMI and my parents have a 46" HDTV, would love to watch my MKV files on their TV. Part of the reason I sold my PS3 was because of lack of MKV video support.
I couldn't afford to pay $60 a game, I couldn't watch my video files, my internet connection is slow and laggy, so it just basically sat there... the real sad thing is...the old Xbox1 could *PLAY* MKV files with XBMC but they were out of sync... the PS3 would flat out say "not supported"... that's kind of embarrassing in my opinion. But I think the most important thing right now is compatibility and fixing the games that have online updates.
