I run Ubuntu 11.10 together with a DLNA Sony Bravia TV KDL 40WE5. I do not have a PS3 or Xbox at all.
I'm running fine serviio, but I wanted some more features, e.g. live stream of sopcast for watching football through the DLNA directly on the TV.
So I turned to PS3 Mediaserver, I installed it, decided the folders containing my media files, indicated the priority of mencoderwebvideo video engine and so on.
I noticed that the PMS.conf is lacking in the linux version.
On Bravia, the icon of PS3 Mediaserver displays in the XBM menu, I can enjoy my media files under the proper folders, but the icon of Web TV does not display in the XBM menu of Bravia TV.
I configured the web.conf to include at the end of the string
I launched the sopcast from shell, something like: /sp-sc-auth sop://broker.sopcast.com:3912/92997
3908 8902 > /dev/null &
This should result in a stream video from the 8902 port, I can watch it indeed from VLC, but when I switch on the Bravia, I do not see anything, neither an icon nor a folder where I can select my live stream video.
I installed the plugins pmsencoder and tv_plug, resulting in a new folder called "channels" in the XBM, under the icon of ps3mediaserver (do not know actually which one of the two defined the new folder...), with a lot of channels, bu again no web TV icon to select my sopcast live stream.
