    Hello,

    i purchased the GTV set top box from Sony and was curious if anyone else has tried plugging their coaxial cable to the GTV via some type of adapter. Is it even worth while trying to do this? Would the DVR feature work?

    On another note, if I connected my PS3 to my GTV, then my GTV to my TV, is it possible to record DVD's playing over the PS3? thanks for any help in advance, i am not so tech savvy myself.

    i thought it did, but so far only for Dish Network customers? hence the coaxial cable question.

    No, GTV doesn't have DVR functionality no matter what TV service is utilized.

    GTV sort of controls your DVR, it doesn't replace a DVR
    Also, it's connected via a HDMI cable to a STB and an network cable to the internet, there's not a built in cable TV tuner, Google is a search company and GTV is a search and display device, searches the internet, searches a DVR, searches TV listing, for TV content
