Ha, if only life were so easy !!
Whenever I run PMS by the "menu", it has the same result as when I make a link or launcher anywhere i.e. 50%.
Running a pms_link in it own PMS folder even complains about missing a child process !
The thing is that by using any other link PMS only detects one (=ip of PC) and not the second (=Bravia tv set) of the available media renderers.
Besides, there's not even a debug.log produced.
When started from its own folder, by cli or click, I have both renderers and a debug.log with all output.
I tried to mend things by appending a path to .bashrc (export PATH=/home/frank/pms:$PATH) but to no avail.
Ionic's suggestion : bash -c 'cd /home/user/pmsps3/; sh PMS.sh' works well (Thanks !) and one can use this even in the menu launcher.
This proggie is like a wonderfull butler, for me it serves:
- from my Ubuntu server through NFS : almost anything
- from my pc likewise
- from a connected NTFS USB-drive, which is mounted again with MP3FS, FLAC's as MP3's (Bravia does not know FLAC)
- it all to my TV set !
The only thing that does not work very well are videos from the webchannels. (althoug some shady content does work ; French news channel) but that's probably up to Sony's proprierty stuff.
