Please, help me update PlayTV
Howdy. Let's get straight to the point:
I have a FAT PS3 (I guess it's not a BC unit). I've kept it on firm 3.15 'till now, 'cause I want to be able "to get online and write texts with it" (using it as a secondary computer). For that, I guessed I'd need its OtherOS feature, but since I haven't needed it yet (as a secondary computer), I haven't even installed it. I do have PlayTV, though.
Recent developments on the scene made me rethink my approach: I guess that soon we'll be able to "get online" even without PSN access, so as to at least use its browser. Through that I'll be able to browse some sites and probably write some stuff through access to Google Docs. So, I'm on the verge of updating and jailbreaking it. One more thing I'd earn through that is that my damn PlayTV would finally work. Let me explain...
I live in Greece, and PlayTV used to work OK with 3-4 digital channels we had. Now, a lot more digital channels appeared, but they use a different encoding standard. One which I guess the latest software version of PlayTV supports, but which I'm not able to install on my PS3 since "I can't get on PSN" (like most of you). I don't want to update my console to 3.42 just to get PlayTV, so, is there any other way I could do it? I guess that IF someone gave me a link to its update PKG, and IF I jailbreaked my PS3, I'd be able to run it as any normal PKG file to install it.
Am I guessing right? Is there any other way to update its software without updating my PS3 firmware, or without jailbreaking the console?
Please, help out a bit, since I paid almost 100 euros to use a device that at the moment sits collecting dust.
Thanks in advance.
