Here are the show notes.. sorry for the delay. My problems with Garageband weren’t expected and made my recording time go much longer then expected.
Looks like a new PSP formatted content site has launched today. PSPDrive is a new site collecting together PSP formatted media of all forms. What sets them apart is the 1 click download option they are beta testing. If you have your PSP connected to your PC clicking the â€œSend to PSPâ€? button will launch a java applet that will place the movie or audio file on your PSP auto-magically. Now this feature is currently in beta testing so your mileage may vary. All in all this is a cool site, hopefully it makes the cut!
Looks like PGR was just Dug on digg.com, welcome to my new visitors. Hopefully the added traffic won’t tax my server too much ;)
Info about our Logo Contest can be found here. Good luck, and while you are here you may want to check out my PSP podcast. It’s a great weekly source of PSP news all bundled into a small Mp3.

Well I was finally able to find myself a 1GB memory stick. These things are so scarce around town, with most stores having an ETA of July, that I had to go out of town to get one. I’m glad that I did. This hulking memory stick is better then I thought it would be. I was getting used to shuffling all my saved games and movies around on my 32MB card that shipped with the PSP that I almost forgot how nice a bigger card would be.
Using various video conversion packages (I’m working on a review comparing the popular ones) I was able to get 2+ hours of my favorite TV shows converted and loaded on this card, with room to spare for saved games!
This card isn’t cheap, mine was $179.00 Canadian plus all applicable taxes. if you can believe it the SanDisk model that I picked up was about 50% of the cost of a Sony branded one. Oh wait, you probably can believe that ;)
If you are one who likes to watch their movies on the go and have a DVD library to convert, this is the card for you. I give the SanDisk 1GB Pro Duo memory stick an A.

Kinoma, the creator of the great Kinoma Producer, has just come out with a new version that now has PSP MP4 support. If you are not familiar with the product, Kinoma producer has been in the marketplace for a while as the best way of converting and playing video on your Palm powered handheld and various cell phones. The conversion process is quick and has always given me good results. I’m interested in seeing how well this utility converts video for the PSP. Kimona Producer is available for both Windows and MacOS X.

PSP Podcast #5 is now ready and available for download.
I have a bit of a smaller episode for you this week. With the big E3 show going on most of the news has dried up for the most part. I chat a little bit about the homebrew scene that has exploded as well as go over the site updates and the logo contest. I’m trying a new MP3 encoder this week that should provide smaller download sizes, but still keep up the quality. Please let me know what you think.

Elgato Systems, the manufacturer of great Mac video capture products, has just released version 1.8 of their EyeTV software. This update adds an EyeTV to Go format that creates videos that one can just drop onto their PSP memory card.
EyeTV 1.8 is fully compatible with the new Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger and includes support for the video codec H.264 in QuickTime 7. Newly added iTunes support provides users with even more options for increasing their personal libraries. Audio tracks can be exported from
EyeTV recordings and effortlessly imported into an iTunes music library, creating direct access to television and film soundtracks.
Sounds like a great release addition to an already amazing product. I’ll have to test this out, I would love to timeshift my favorite TV shows and watch them on my PSP.
