    I just got eyeconnect and it works beautifully.

    The only obstacle I have to overcome now is movies. I want to be able to watch a movie through the PS3, but, it only plays mpegs...

    there is tversity for PC that will re-encode from whatever file extension to MPG while you watch but like I said, its only for PS3.

    Any way to get around this other than re-encoding all my movies and shit?

    There should be an update that lets it play DivX files, I know mine can. You also need to turn on WMA playback in the System Setting area to view AVI's and some other formats.

    I tried EyeConnect and found it sucks. I hope you didn't pay $100 for it because they no longer seem to support it. It's supposed to have "plug-ins" that allow transcoding, but Elgato never released anything. Plus it seemed to hang up my computer on shutdown.

    I use NullRiver's MediaLink ($20). Clean, simple & unobtrusive. Doesn't do transcoding, but the PS3 is being updated to support more & more codecs.

    Caused my Mac to run slow & hang up on shutdown. Plus no album art feature.

    Still on the EyeConnect Trial. Works perfectly every day.
