    I don't think its possible. The PS3 would need a built in TV-Tuner card. Which they dont have. Rumor is Sony is thinking of doing a PSX version of the PS3. The PSX was a basically a DVR that could record tv shows to a HD and burn DVD's and play PS2 games. But it was only released in Japan. Link to the original http://www.ps3land.com/psx.php

    It will be possible, all you need is the correct software.

    If you already have a TV tuner on your computer you can stream television broadcasts live to your PS3 using Nero Mediahome.

    Is you TV tuner USB? if it is you can install PS3 Linux and see if it works with that.

    When home comes out you will be able to find a new gf and take her to your private room, and if the web cams work you could have the best of both worlds together. Who knows, I bet they will have a personals room for people looking for a different kind of action.

    lol. You guys are funny.

    How do I steam veggies in my PS3? I heard you can drill a hole in the top and put in a plastic cup and basket set up so you can steam your own veggies. Does anyone have a tutorial on how to do this? lol

    My wife has me hold the PS3 up against her head to dry her hair. This works brilliantly! I used that excuse to get the PS3 to begin with! Next week I am going to tell her that if I get a 360 she can use it to curl her hair! WOOT!
