PSP on the HDTV: Component AV Cable

Pardon me while I watch a movie on my 42″ television… oh, did I mention the movie is actually playing on my PSP, and also on my tv?

I took a DVD that I already own, and ripped it to my PSP. Then, I just grabbed the new Component AV Cable and hooked the PSP to my tv. I can watch movies, read my RSS feeds, or browse the Internet, all using the PSP controls and viewing on my big screen.

There are two main drawbacks to this cable. The first is that while you can browse your PSP full screen, and surf the ‘Net full screen… you cannot play games full screen. Sony dropped the ball with that one. But for only $20.00, that’s not much to complain about! The only other complaint I have is that the cord does not retract back into itself. I LIVE for retractable cords, people!
