DIRECTV2PC Media Server
I just turned on my PS3 and under Video "DIRECTV2PC Media server" shows up as a host. I can go to my HR2X Playlist but all my recordings though are "unsupported data". Is this a sign that maybe Sony and DirecTV have something in the works? This would also be a great way for MRV.

I don't think Sony has anything to do with this. It's simply DirecTV implementing their new DirecTV2PC service. It just so happens that they've chosen to implement a standards based approach to this new technology that the PS3 also uses. After installing the software on my PC, it said that it had to authenticate/authorize it to play protected content. I don't know if this call went out to the internet or just to the HR21, but I'm betting that is why your PS3 won't play content- it's missing this step.
Anyways, since this is new tech, this is all just my opinion.
This has been this way for many months.

It would be cool though to play the shows on the PS3. Oh well, perhaps the next CE will have the must awaited feature.
I wonder what would happen if you were to use the PS3 to delete recorded shows... (If you select info on the PS3, it gives the title of the show.)
It just says "unsupported data". I can't play or anything. I haven't tried to delete anything though from the PS3. Just thought I would see if anyone had any thoughts. No biggy.
