    Default PS3 Question....

    I have recently started using my PS3 to stream from Pandora which I like a lot. Also, I have ordered the Netflix DVD to be able to watch instantly through the PS3. I saw another thread related. I have a couple of questions.....

    What other online radio stations are good through the ps3? How is the Netflix through the ps3 (basically is it worth it)?

    Also, when I put a disc in or turn on my ps3, it takes me to my user id and I have to push enter to log on. It doesn't automatically log me in or start the disc. It always screws up the date and time because of this. Anyone have a solution to this problem?

    Thanks in advance.

    Shawn, can't answer radio station question bit when I inserted my Netflix disk the first time it provided a code that then required me to my computer to netflix.com/ps3 and enter the activiation code. Once I did the PS3 displayed my instant queue.

    No logging in required on PS3 the first time. I have not tried a scond time but I do not think so.

    Thanks man. Appreciate the response. I figured out the problem with the user id - I didn't have it set up to automatically log into my user name when the unit powered on.

    I usually use Pandora myself, but there is Jango as well. Never tried it on the PS3, but it is pretty much the same as Pandora.

    I think LastFM is another one a lot of people at work use. Not sure if it works with the PS3 or not. I just use Pandora and netflix.

    I didnt care for the netflix streaming dont really care to watch movies in that poor of quility. I do use netflix I just order the BR movies. I understand you cant stream BR movies but the quility was really poor worse than vhs to me. If the quility was the same as a SD dvd I would use but until then didnt like it.
