212w ago - It's been quite some time since we had an update on PS3 MegaBox (or similar frontends) primarily because Sony removed the OtherOS and Linux options from the PS3 Slim.
However, yesterday DemonHades (linked above) experimented with installing the latest PS3 MegaBox Linux Media Center via USB pendrive.
That being said, those who wish to revisit PS3 MegaBox can grab the recently released version 2.1 Final (1.3GB in size) from Spanish site Megalandia along with some compatibility and multilanguage fixes.
For those curious, PS3 MegaBox v2.1 has the following features, roughly translated:
• It turns your PlayStation 3 into a complete system multimedia.
• It takes advantage of to the maximum the possibilities your video console.
• It transforms the television into your main maintenance center. It enjoys like in your PC, but from the comfort of your hall.
• It accedes to Internet, electronic mail, films and videos in network, series, music... unloading thousands of gratuitous games.
320w ago - The nice guys over at www.XCM.cc have shared with us the following info on their newXCM E-Setter as follows:
The E-Setter is a device for people who can easily set up the screen on their TV. Some people may have 2 or more TVs at home: when they want to move the PS3 to play on another TV, they may find it has no picture on another TV.
It is because the output resolution is different on each TV so they can't get the picture, and they have to set the PS3 back to original setting on their current TV before moving to another TV.
Apart from that setting the output of PS3 is so complicated.. almost takes half an hour to do so. The E-Setter is a device for you to set up the output resolution easily, people just need to switch a button and get their set up within a few seconds only.
In related news, today GunPR has shared MegaBox PS3 WIP. It can be installed via Petitboot Bootloader (OS Selector) For PS3, but remember it's only a WIP thus far and lacks HDMI output.
More to come on this soon, and some concept pics are below!
