I created a new directory on C: on the install drive (the source files were on E:, if that matters). In the new directory I copied 300 files of the same type (MPEG-2). Started PS3MS, went to the PS3 (which is 6 feet from the router) and after a long delay the file names eventually showed up. Quit PS3MS.
I then copied an additional 100 files into the new directory and restarted PS3MS. This time the PS3 reported the "Media Server Error: A DLNA protocol error (2006) has occurred" twice, followed by the usual "There are no titles". Quit PS3MS. After closing PS3MS, several minutes later JavaW.exe was still hogging the CPU, so I killed the process.
I then removed 50 files, now down to 350, and although the "Media Server Error: A DLNA protocol error (2006) has occurred" did display once, the files eventually showed up. Looks like there is a limit. And, that limit seems to be between 350 to 400 files per directory.
The limit isn't with the PS3 because using an older version of PS3MS doesn't have this problem. Perhaps the file names or whatever is taking place, happens sooner with the older versions. The newer versions take their time and are timing out the connection to the PS3. Perhaps there needs to be a keep-alive sent or something for it to work correctly?
Looking up "Media Server Error: A DLNA protocol error (2006) has occurred" doesn't yield any useful information as to what exactly is a DLNA 2006 error. If I was to take a guess I think it means the connection failed.
