PSP gets a proper TV recorder

PSP owners finally have a dedicated accessory store to rival those of their iPod-packing mates.

Stuff can exclusively reveal this weekend's launch of PSPworld.co.uk, home to a dizzying array of cases, speakers and bits and bobs for the Portable Playstation - including the Neuros MPEG-4, a digital recorder to simplify the process of loading the PSP with TV and video.

Neuros' £150 black box (pictured above) takes the simple route to telly recording. All you need to do is whack in your PSP's Memory Stick Duo, plug the whole caboodle into your Sky+, Freeview or cable box and hit the record button on the bundled mini remote. The only yawn is that programmes record in real time - so you'll need to wait an hour before you can take Richard and Judy on the train with you.

We'll give you our full verdict on the Neuros after we've tested it, but one thing's for sure - it's certainly an improvement over the existing methods. So far, TV-loving, PSP-packing fans have to either use a PC with a TV tuner card, download video clips of dubious origin from the net or run ridiculous numbers of cables from their TV to a computer with a capture card.

There are some other tasty PSP add-ons to be found on PSPWorld's site, too. We're already coveting Logic 3's Solar Charger at £30, the £30 quality colour faceplates and the £32 HipGear speaker dock, which has a dead useful extending neck.
