Another PS3 has not been found

Postby ward » Tue Mar 10, 2009 4:37 pm

Hi, I know there are a couple of similar topics around but none of the fixes I've read about in them has worked for me.

I have a computer running Linux and Mediatomb where everything work fine with streaming to my ps3 (so that rule out some possible errors).

I use a wireless router where both my Macbook (Leopard) and ps3 are connected wirelessly. I've tried different combinations of forcing my the server ip and network interface with no luck and the firewall in osx is turned of. I've restared PMS a number of times and rescanned both in the program and on the ps3. Everything leading to the same error message: "PS3 has not been found"..

What else can I do to get this working? :)

Here is the lower part of my DEBUG.LOG

Try explicitly specifying the interface. That is, set it to look only at the wireless or ethernet adapters. Go to General settings -> Force networking on interface: -> en1. You might want to try another interface then too.

Thank you for your answer. I've already done that, but I did it again now just to be sure. No luck :/

Are there any settings in OSX, other than the firewall, that could interfere with the connection between PMS and the ps3? The firewall-tab under Preferences/Security doesn't really give that much information of what's really going on. It would be interesting if I could see somewhere when my PS3 is broadcasting/scanning the network for media servers.
