    Soooooooooooooo .....Ok so finally got this up and running!

    Its not bad but not great they need to optimize the search by genre it freezes for ages before being usable and they also need to allow me to use my PS3 keypad for text searching instead of up and down on the thumbpad [​IMG]


    works quite well advert supported but not even visible when you press SELECT to go fullscreen [​IMG]

    searching is a pita as mentioned above that needs a little work and speeded up and allow to use PS3 keypad or keyboard entry would make typing a search far easier then the clunky up down left and right of the dpad!

    adding to a playlist is quite straight forward press triangle add to playlist (you can name play lists too to whatever and the number of play lists is infinite!)

    overall its pretty good and hardly any lag at all only on startup it takes ages to update new feeds and the search takes a while as its like Intellisense it starts searches as you put the letters into the search bar if you hesitate and it becomes a pain to try beat it!

    Just checking it out now and all seems pretty good. As long as they keep the music up to date this could prove a popular thing for Sony, Proper high quality fullscreen would be awesome too [​IMG]
