Hi, I am completely new to media servers and streaming media so please bear with me. I have PMS set up on my desktop computer, which is wired internet into a router. The PS3 is also wired into the same router.
I enabled Network Discovery (I'm on Vista) and restarted PMS, but I get the big red X button display and says the PS3 has not been found, even though it is on and connected to the internet. Nor when I navigate on the PS3 and "Search for Media Servers" does it work - I get the error message "No media servers were found."
The PMS "Traces" tab seems to indicate that all is correct, and says I should see the server appear on the XMB...so I have no idea what I am doing wrong. Do I need to set something up on the PS3 to enable media server streaming? Any help would be much appreciated!
Here is the Traces tab log:
