1 – I do have a USB headset for Skype and it’s a stereo one with a mic. Must give that a go. Last time I tried it was with a brief game of Socom but I forgot to activate it or something. I could also use the Sharkoon headset with the PS3’s optical out of course.

2 – I think I’ll do the same, index finger for both!

Yup, I had UPnP enabled on both routers but I think the Xbox 360 defined it’s rules before the PS3 did so all the traffic went to the wrong console.

I realised this evening I have to buy another component cable for the PS3, and I’ll have to swap cables in and out of my monitor. (No hdmi, and only one set of component connectors on it)
