If you have a playstation 3 and you want to record/pause/rewind live tv then this is the product is for you!
The play tv plugs into your playstation 3 and your tv aerial and allows you to record freeview tv programs straight onto your playstation. The device its self is a small black box which is easy to install with the disc provided and then is ready to go.
The play tv allows you to record one tv program while watching another. You can turn the playstation off once a recording has been set, it will turn itself on to record the program and off again once its done. You are also able to pause live tv if you need to nip to the loo, or someone phones you or something and carry on watching when your done :) the cost is very reasonable (I got mine for about £30) compared to other tv recording devices, which will set you back upwards of £100, one of the reasons I got this was the cheap price.
The controls are easy to use, though I would suggest getting a playstation remote control as it makes things easier, you can use the playstation controller though.
Summary: Great idea, would recommend to any ones with a playstation 3
