PS3MediaServer Requires Reboot Each Time To Work

Postby frizat » Sat Apr 11, 2009 6:22 pm

So my PS3 Media Server was working flawlessly, i had it setup as a Service in VISTA and it loaded everytime i loaded my computer. All of a sudden, my PS3 could no longer see it (i think this was around the time i updated to 2.6 on the PS3). Now to get my PS3MediaServer to work i have to reboot my entire computer, while leaving the PS3 on, and then it works.

The only other thing i can think of that is affecting it might be that I have a VPN connection to my work the computer that runs PS3MediaServer? Any suggestions hints ideas? It's very frustrating to have to reboot everytime i want to use the PS3 Media Server

I included my Debug Log

I've got a similar problem :(

1- your computer specs (cpu, memory) and the precise server version you're using
CPU Core 2 Duo E8500
Memory 4GB DDR3
version 1.10.625
windows Vista

2- the network connection you are using for streaming your files (wifi, homeplugs, ethernet 100Mbits, or gigabit)
I'm using a gigabit lan connection via a 3com switch.

3- detailed infos on what's not working
PS3MS only works after a clean reboot of the entire OS. And then, after some while it just doesn't work any longer. PS3MS does still find the PS3 and the PS3 still finds PS3MS but there are a couple of things differently. First, browsing files and folders on the ps3 seems be having slowdowns/hickups. When working, this does not occur. Secondly: When trying to stream a video, most of the time I will get a network error after a time of patiently watching a black screen. It does transcode/remuxes but network activity stays really low.

It seems some process is not terminated properly because files like debug.log stay locked. And after some searching, it looks like Java's Jushed.exe is the process locking the files.

4- if you're transcoding some videos, which engine are you using ? (mencoder, avisynth/mencoder, tsmuxer)
I have tried mencoder, avisynth/mencoder and tsmuxer
