PS3 Media Server and Windows 8

Postby thomZ » Tue Nov 27, 2012 7:45 pm

Hi everybody,

I've been using PSM for a while and I think the software is really great.

Nevertheless,I've recently updated my computer with Windows 8 PRO and PSM can't find my PS3 anymore. So when I run the program from the .exe, I keep the huge red cross and the PS3 isn't find.

The strange thing is that when I run the program from the .jar file, everything works like a charm.

Does someone have the solution to that problem ?

Thank you very much.

2. Ensure Windows Media Player Internet Sharing Service is running
3. Go to Tiles view
4. Put cursor in upper right hand corner to get side menu
5. Click settings
6. Click Ethernet Icon
7. Right Click on Network
8. Turn Sharing ON

9. In PS3 Media Player Force IP address to
Forcing port is optional if you run a netstat -a and don't see PMS running on port
change it to a diferent port.

After changes about PMS was able to find my playstation
