If anyone knows of a way that I can provide diagnostics to improve the connection speed to the TV then I'm happy to help, just need instructions, detailed instructions ;-)

As tent says above I am running Gigabit ethernet and I am only showing 44 -45Mbps. Mpeg files play absolutely fine but AVIs run faster than normal and stutter. Also sound is out of sync.
Not sure how to change this in the settings

Hi,

Is anybody able to help me getting PS3 MediaServer running with LG BD-390 BluRay player?
The LG supports generally media server streams.
I am using a conf file for LG 390 posted in this thread.
The PS3 media server recognizes the LG properly and vice versa.
When I select a movie on the LG to be played, the screen went black and LG crashes after a period of time.

Has anybody an idea what could cause this problem?

Regards

Jens

ok, thanks :) I'll try it


Just wondering, any luck with this yet? I also am getting the same thing when trying to use AndroMote from my Android phone running 2.1. There are logs in the debug file that show it is trying to connect, the device shows up on the screen as detected, but the program does not allow for browsing.

Same here : a Gigabit networkadapter and a Gigabit router, but max 47 Mbps to my Bravia. In general its working fine, but with some movies the sound reacts on the video, i.e. the sound "stutters" when the video uses to much bandwith.

Anyone perhaps a suggestion ? Does it help to set the max bandwith on a value other than 0 ?
Thanks for responding.

AFAIK, the NIC in the Bravia is a 100Mb one, and generally 70Mb would be the best throughput you could hope for. Deduct your TCP/IP overhead and The number is lower still. So I'd reckon approx 50Mbps is realistic. The PS3 has a Gigabit NIC, hence the difference. Other factors will limit that (perhaps it's reserving the majority of bus throughput for the GPU and so on).

@Fozzie Bear: Unlike the PS3, the Bravia cannot natively play AVIs so I think your issue is more likely to be a transcoding one.

Hi,
so ok for the NIC speed (I noticed anyway that either network banwidth nor cpuspeed was "topped" to the max when streaming or transcoding on my PC so far, so no issue there probably), BUT: it is anyway having some issues with audio stuttering and jumping or even not syncing ok (depending on the format of the file and on the encoding I choose), basically so far I was not able to find any good combination.
So is anyone of you using a good working setup with a sony bravia x5y00 series? so far the best combinations where avisynth/FFMpeg and avisynth/mencoder (but the inside settings I tried where several).

tent

PS-OT: is it true that the favourites channel selection on this sony series is so bad? i.e. I have to press the heart first and then scroll to the program I want?? sounds strange..

@tent - I found that build 409 will not stream AVC stuff without transcoding/just locking up unless I set the encoder preference to prefer tsMuxer. Even then it will list it as MPEG2. However tsp contributed some code fixes and a recompiled jar file earlier in this thread that I'm using with a Bravia V5500. Works very well. If only they would update the dlna renderer in firmware to allow DivX/Xvid playback (like they do with PS3 and their bluray players) and subtitle support I think everything would be covered... Unfortunately it's not at all in their interests though. Surprising that the Samsung firmwares have been hacked and not the Sony, especially as these Bravias also run Linux.

Got my new Sony Bravia KDL 40EX500AEP last friday.
Using the Bravia-EX.conf that MattofSweden provided and self compiled PMS build 410 it works perfectly straight out of the Box.
Amazing!!!
Been using PMS for 2 years with my PS3 which now can retire to just Games and BluRays.
Thx shagrath for making this amazing software!!

Just encountered one Problem.
tsmuxed x264 works perfect
mencoder transcoded x264 with original 16:9 aspect gets letterboxed and thus wrong aspect ratio.
-vf expand=::::1:16/9 doesnt help.
is there a solution for this?

edit:
the same problem happens with transcoded 16:9 xvid/divx.
4:3 xvid/divx work fine.

this cant be that hard to fix, someone pls help :))

edit2:
also pms does not stream divx directly, only get it transcoded with bad aspect, why?
the tv supports divx directly

edit3:
it even transcodes divx when i add avi to stream extensions.
how do i force non transcode streaming of avis ?
