I know this is mute topic but I've spent about 25 hours so far trying to get this fixed. I've read all the posts and googled the hell out of it but (sighs) I can't get ps3mediaserver to find my PS3.
Here is the scenario:
My goal is to stream HD movies from my bedroom IMAC running OS X V 10.7.2 It's a 3.06 GHz Core 2 Duo with 4GB 1067 MHz RAM.
I have a few MKV movies and a lot of eyetv HD movies on the computer that I'd love to stream to my PS3 computer to watch on my HDTV at will.
At first, I tried a few media servers (including PS3MS) with a wireless connection. The connections were fine, but the streaming (when accessing HD movies on EyeTV) were so choppy they were unwatchable. But, I'm not satisfied with watching them in a watered down quality so I searched the internet for the best streaming solution. I found out that it was best to ditch the wireless stream and wire up. So I bought an ethernet cable with RJ-45 plugs and did a DIRECT connect from the PS3 to the back of my MAC. Still with me?
I configured the PS3 to enable media servers and all that fun stuff and whala! I have an internet signal and can receive some media servers. I experimented with MediaLink which was good quality but the video on HD movies stuttered a lot. I tried Playback and also EyeConnect which also produced as choppy video as I got with a wireless connection. My DL speed is around 20Mbs.
I did some more research and found out that good ole PS3MS delivered a stutter-free picture if you set the buffer to around 600. This seemed perfect for me.
I installed version 1.50.0 and have had the roughest time getting it to recognize my PS3. MediaLink and any other show up fine but PS3MS doesn't recognize the PS3. I've uninstalled the others, removed the processes for EyeTV (because the first error in Traces was an "Address already in use" conflict that I solved by shutting down EyeTV's processes and launching PS3MS.
So fine, now I get:

The closest I came to having the software find anything is when I launched it with EyeTVHD and it recognized that as being a renderer.
I'm at my wits end. I just want to watch HD movies from my MAC in my living room without a USB. Can anyone help?
