Thing is though phelen, as hdd sizes and bandwidth on connections spiral, the more likely people are to do this.

There is only a certain group of people who would go to the trouble of hacking their consoles, and they are the same people who have no problem setting a 20gb file downloading, a small percentage of their customers.

When any console gets hacked, it's very rarely a massive worry to the console makers.

The wii has been hacked for ages, my friend has his done and he's downloaded loads of games, and it's actually relatively easy to do.

I personally don't have a problem with large download's, as HDD space is cheap, and it only takes a few hours per blu-ray. I remember when i used to download films on my 56k modem. Used to take a week!

I use this http://ps3mediaserver.blogspot.com/

It allows me to access the hard drive on my macbook, so I can stream the films I have downloaded.

Never had an online game disconnect as much.
Never had a game freeze as much, forcing me to reset.

Ive had the same or similar error code a few times, usually results in me being signed out of PSN.

After doing a bit of reading, it seems a possible solve is to reset your router, that's worked for me in the past.

I think if you set up a static IP for your PS3 on the router, it reduces the chances of this error coming up.

Anybody want to sell me, point me in the right direction or even potentially rent me (yes pikey) their Playstation 3 move camera and two 'controllers'. Misses wants it for a birthday party later on in the month so i have said i will sort it. Am i right in thinking it is about £75 new for the above?

Laughing out loud nothing to do with me, Girlfriend is organising a little house party for her bday, i have a kitchens worth of sweets, teapots (for sweet centrepieces apparently Puzzled ),some decorations that i can't think the name of at the moment, pimms, courvoisier and smirnoff blue. Last year she went to Ibiza so she can do what ever she wants this year as it is going to be cheaper for me.

Plus i am not invited which is an absolute bonus…
