Review of Samsung BD-D8500 HDD Recorder

The back of the BD-D8500

Update August 8. 2011

Just got my Samsung BD-D8500 back from repair. I was not expecting to get it back that fast as they told me it would be about 10 days to repair the device. I have just upgraded it to firmware 1005 and coded all my TV channels back in again. Everything seems to work just fine. Let’s hope it stays that way this time 🙂

Stream movies to your PS3 with TVersity

Review of TVersity Media Server

tversity
If you have a PlayStation 3 and want to stream video from you PC, TVersity Media Server can help you. You can download a version for free or you can by the Pro Edition. In this little review I will keep focus on the free version. Not only can TVersity stream your movies from your PC, it is also able to stream Video Podcast from the Internet to your PS3. If you want to access your pictures located on your computer from your PS3 and see them on your big-screen TV that is possible as well.

You properly have a big collection of MP3 music on your PC. You might also have your PS3 hooked up with your surround receiver as well. Why not use the PS3 for playing your MP3 collection. With TVersity you don’t even have to copy the files to your PS3 hard drive, you can just stream it from your PC.

A PlayStation 3 can be used for a lot more than just playing games.

You can download the free version here:  Download (17 MB)
It can be installed on: Windows XP, Windows 2000 and Windows 7.

TVersity is using the DLNA protocol just like Windows Media center does. DLNA is built in to many electronic devices today, like LCD/LED TV, NAS and of course your PS3.
