Windows 7 64-bit
Quad Core @3.20gHz
1.5GB NVidia GeForce GT540 card.
I have been having this issue all week trying to transfer a file over using v1.72. Initially I had the PS3 wirelessly connected through my router. The file in question would stop copying at exactly 222MB.
The following are all the different troubleshooting I performed, all failed at 222MB:
Created a Dump File for PMS
Set processor affinity to realtime on the PMS process.
I attempted to DMZ the PS3 on the router.
I replaced the file with a new one in case of file corruption.
I hardwired the PS3 to the router with PC wirelessly transmitting.
I hardwired the PC with the PS3 wirelessly transmitting.
I hardwired both PC & PS3 through router.
I restored the PS3 to factory settings, including an HDD full format.
I uninstalled PMS and reinstalled.
I uninstalled PMS and reverted to v1.5
I hardwired from PC to PS3 sans router with a crossover cable.
I played with the video transcoding settings even to the lowest quality.
As mentioned earlier all these attempts failed at the same point in the transaction. Finally last night I did one change in the PMS that allowed me to copy the files over:
Change the max audio channel output from 5.1 to 2.0 and the AC3 bitrate to 384 (from 600 something default) and finally uncheck the DTS playback.
After these changes the issue was fixed and I was able to copy the file over. I believe the issue might be related to a bottleneck when processing the audio through my integrated sound card.
Since I don't have a 5.1 system I dont miss the extra channels, hopefully this helps someone else with the issue.
