    I know that Nullriver Medialink enables a Mac to stream content to a PS3. I am wondering if the opposite is possible, can a PS3 stream to a Mac? Being that we have no Blu-ray playback capability (yet) I though this might be a way to watch Blu-ray on a Mac. I am fairly certain this is not possible due to DRM issues but maybe someone knows a way?

    I'm pretty sure the only way to do this would be to install ubuntu linux on your ps3. Then rip the disc to you mac's harddrive. Then use anydvd hd in windows to remove the aacs encryption. Then use TS muxer to create a .m2ts video file. Then that file will be playable in Plex. (and maybe VLC). Or you can handbrake it to a different format.

    Many people are using a method similar to this to backup their blurays to watch on their Apple TV's.
