The PS3 supports a gigabit connection. You need Cat6 cabling for full gigabit, and Cat5e for 300mbit. Cat5 maxes out at 100mbit. Also, make sure your router supports a 1000Base-T connection.rozel wrote:I am using a Wired Ethernet Connection - should be a gigabit connection but only seems able to connect at 100Mbits - is this something to do with the PS3 ?
If everything is setup properly in your network/firewalls, the order shouldn't matter. In the router, make sure that UPnP and Multicast requests are allowed. No port forwarding is required. In the firewall, make sure that TCP/UDP is allowed on the port PMS is using (default 5001), and that it automatically accepts incoming requests from the PS3 (to do that on mine I had to put the PS3's IP into the list of "Trusted Zone" IPs)rozel wrote:1. In what order should I turn everything on - pc, then PS3 then PS3MS ?
You should be able to begin browsing folders immediately. Once again, check that your network is setup properly, as issues with just browsing the files indicates that something is not right with your UPnP settings.rozel wrote:2. How long should I then wait before I trying to find files on my PS3? More often than not I get DNLA errors (I'm not sure what those mean) and I have to resort to turning everything off and back on - when you want to watch a film, this can get frustrating, but after a few minutes PS3MS finds the PS3 and to play safe I then wait 5 minutes before finding files - is this normal ? Just now I quit PS3MS and turned it back on only for it NOT to find the PS3! Usually a restart or power down and power up sorts this but why is this necessary?
Use the "Jump to..." option in the PS3 playback menu (accessed via Triangle button).rozel wrote:3. How can you quickly go to a point in a film, say 45 mins in? I am aware you can do this but not sure how
I believe PMS will soon have the option to prevent sleep mode.rozel wrote:4. I have sorted out my Power saving settings - I noticed that when it went to sleep, the film froze! but today the PS3MS program has shut down by itself twice ? - any thoughts ?
