Media Server doesn't recognize my PS3 Please Help

Postby abr111 » Tue Jul 21, 2009 6:24 pm

Hey guys, so i've been using PS3 Media Server for a while now and it's always worked fine. I have two computer and they both recognized my PS3. Now, i moved my PS3 downstairs to a new tv and it's right next to my wireless router now. But the media server will not recognize my PS3 now. It doesn't work on either computer. The program says "PS3 has not been found. Is it on? You can also check traces and/or configuration, or also the debug.log file". I'm on windows vista and using media server v1.10.51. Please help me.

That's odd, with your PS3 next to your router is it now wired to router not wireless? That may assign it a different IP and if you used the IP filter option then PS3MS wouldn't see it. Or if you had port forwarding set up and changed connectin type same problem.
I'm no network genius just puzzled lots of problems before.

No it's not wired. I'll move my PS3 back upstairs later and see if it works.

OK, if connection type wasn't changed then apart from your routers DHCP assigning a different IPI have no idea. You could try reserving an IP for your PS3's MAC address, give this to PS3MS and try that.

Well what i did was log onto another account on my computer and it worked from there. For some reason it just doesn't work on the other account, maybe because i installed the program into a different directory on that account.

You must have some setting or piece of software running differently between accounts, presumably they are both administrator? Bit of a nuisance having to change accounts to watch something. Media sharing off/on? Sorry at tthis point I'd be guessing.
