PCH-A110 not seen from Ps3mediaserver in Ubuntu[Solved]

Postby MickeA59 » Tue Sep 01, 2009 8:28 am

Hi !!

I have installed latest build and after this also the svn build of Ps3mediserver togheter with builds of all the muxers encoders. on Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop
From PHC i can see the ps3mediaserver and shared media from it.
Allthough when starting ps3mediaserver it fails to recognise My pch and sets unknown renderer.
I have checked firewalls etc . Disabled. Running on direct link(no wireless)
How do ps3mediaserver recognice the pch via upnp ,Wich info is it looking for when searching??

Best regards

Mikael

I had a similar problem with my istar mini (essentially the same as a popcornhour for our purposes) when I first installed 1.11.356 on my Ubuntu 8.04 system.

When I tried the same release on a windows xp box, it came up right away.

I'm not sure what I ended up doing, but I eventually got the linux version of PMS working successfully with my NMT. I would start by doing the following:

1. Delete debug.log from the root of your PMS install (it gets pretty big and can be a pain to scroll through)
2. Fire up PMS
3. Start up your player, give it a few minutes to boot.
4. Go to "media sources" and confirm that PMS is not showing up.
5. Check out debug.log and see what you can find out.

When my istar mini connects to PMS, I see the following in debug.log:
Code: Select all

Your issue could be network related, or it could be related to the user agent string that the A-110 is returning, or something completely different. Check out /renderers/PopcornHour.conf to see which user agent strings PMS is looking for.

Post back and I'm sure I can help you get this working.

Thank you for the inspiration.
When looking for the debug file i recognised it wasnt any.
Changing the permissions for the folder and starting ps3mediaserver
and know the debug file was there and it recognised my pch.
So the problem was permissions to the diffrent folders.
But without what you wrote i have missed this so common linux issue.
So Thank you.

Regards
