    Im new to the forums and I really had a few questions i hope could be answered. First off i was looking into a pda to control my media PC but i found the this site on the PSP. What i really wanted is if the psp can do these some of the options here.

    1. Can the PSP use remote desktop and by that i mean, is there a program i can control my desktop computer as long as im on the internet of on the wifi network?"
    2. If so how much access would my psp be allowed with these programs?
    3. Are there homebrew media players that will allow me to play DVD rip movies instead of recompressing the actual movie?
    4. Can i add a media player that i can make playlist and have visualizations for(mainly for my car since i dont have a CD player)?
    5. Can i have the IR setup for multiply electronics around the house like my TV and reciever?
    6. Which is better 1.5 firmware or one of dark alex's firmwares? what are their features
    7. Can i create my own themes with 1.5 or dark alex's firmwares?


    Any help would be cool

    1. I'm not sure if you can control your PC with a PSP :/
    3. The psp can play MP4s and there are programs that can play avi I beleive, not too sure on this one tho
    4. playlists: yes, irShell visualizations: yes, the stock music player built in has like 6
    5. Yes, Universal Remote or irShell
    6. Custom Firmwares. Custom Firmwares (cfw) have everything that new firmwares have and can support Homebrew and ISOs and customizations. As well as the recovery menu, which has saved probly each of us at least once
    7. Yes, there are many tutorials around here

    Well its a PSP forum, so most people are probably gonna say get a PSP. I think it's a really cool gadget, if nothing else that also has the best graphics for a handheld.

    I just checked out Portable VNC and i thought it was very interesting, but what about loading windows on to the PSP if i did that would it be able to do the same thing?

    Windows 95 works on the PSP...very horribly though, very unstable. Midian is working on getting it up and going smoothly now

    Get a PSP.

    Once you get it to 1.5 or custom firmware, download this:

    PDA functions on the PSP. I love that program.

    I actually had made this decision over a year ago.

    PDA's functions are somewhat different. PSP is cheaper for what it can do, in terms of power though (ie games and videos).
