Could I stream it from my computer to my TV by using a PS3?

Come on! Someone has to know the answer to this...I know Hulu and stuff like that can be streamed to your TV...think I can do the same thing with MLB.TV?

I want to buy it but only if I can get it on my TV.

MLB.com has a demo of the streaming playback that you can use to try it out.

Can you stream other websites with a PS3?

I bought MLB.TV for the first time this year and the quality is amazing.

I've had MLB.TV before, so I know about the quality...I'm wondering if I can stream it from my PC to my TV using a console like a PS3...

Why not run an HDMI or an S cable? HD?

my HDTV is old school...it would just be easier to do it through my console...I'm wondering if a program like TVersity would allow me to do that.

If you find out let me know. I may order it myself.

No, they are really good at not allowing MLB games to be on that site...trust me, I've looked.

I bought MLB.TV...the HD streams are AMAZING.

Picture in picture, watch 4 at once...I'm in heaven...I have the Royals game on with the Orioles in the top right.

That is all.

I honestly think it is worth the $19.95 a month.

I guess you used to be able to, but this year MLB.TV is blocking it or something...but the HD streams are INCREDIBLE.

Do I have to put my real zip code in? So I won't get blacked out of Cards games?

Or do they even get blacked out? I know FSN has blacked out 3 of the 5 games so far this year in Des Moines.

yes, they do get blacked out. I heard mlb was doing away with blackouts though?

I didn't know if mlb.tv would have blackouts as frequently.

And apparently not, as I said, since the Des Moines district of Mediacom has been blacked out 3 times this week. Apparently the "local" area is 6 hours away...:rolleyes:

I am blacked out of the Brewers game and I live in Central Illinois...so watch out for blackouts...

Blargh... So this service is useless to me. If they're blacked out on FSN, I still won't be able to watch them. Unless there is a way to fudge my zip code? Or does it go by your billing address?

I'm f*cking 630 miles away and living in the Rockies TV area. Yet the Royals are blacked out. I can choose to watch every other team BUT the Royals. :cuss::cuss::cuss:

Pretty sure it goes by your IP location. I have tried logging onto a friends account who lives in LA and the local games are still blacked out.

What output do you have from your computer? If you don't mind getting not-amazing-quality-sound, I just use my DVI-HDMI cable that I bought from Monoprice.com and connect my PC to my TV. Then, I just bring my PC speakers and put them on by the TV.

Hey Hootie.

Try something called PS3MediaServer

Its pretty awesome.

Not sure if you can stream mlb.tv, you'd have to check. But this is free and well worth it.

http://code.google.com/p/ps3mediaserver/

This is one of the things it supports "Internet TV / Web Radio support with VLC, MEncoder or MPlayer "

So, someone, not me, but some random person could stream porn in HD through their PS3 onto their Plasma television? How would said pervert go about getting this on their PS3? Like, with a data card? Or could said pervert take this link and go to it on the web browser for the PS3?

Actually, someone that I know, not me, has done exactly that.

All I, err....he had to do was have the Computer and PS3 connected to the same Router.

That really sucks. My piece of shit HP laptop just had it's wireless adapter go bad and it needs to go in for service. 3rd time in less than 2 years due to shitty manufacturing. I wish those bastards would just ship me a new one already. I guess I'll have to wait.

So basically with that patch you can surf the web on your ps3 to the same capacity as a pc? I could watch the Chiefs streams this year on my Plasma?

Not necessarily.

I havent been able to do that.

You can play any videos or music or view any pictures that you have on your PC hard-drive on your TV.

If it were in a mp4 or avi format I hear you can just drop the file on a usb drive.

I know nothing about PS3, but mlb.tv is just a flash page loaded in a browser. So, if you can show a browser and view flash on the PS3, no reason it wouldn't work.
