I also have an Airport Express I use to stream my music from iTunes. How could I set up the Airport Express so I could plug in an ethernet cable from the Airport Express directly into the PS3?

Thanks.

Use the settings in the attachment. Of course you will need an existing wifi network (like an Airport Extreme).

Thanks Redlum for the attachment. I will get that a shot and see how it works. Will having an Airport Express hooked directly to the PS3 help maintain a good bandwidth?
Will this setup work?
from the wall -> cable modem -> Airport extreme -> hooked directly into iMac -> Airport Express -> hooked directly to PS3

Yes, that should work. Your PS3 will basically have 802.11n then, with the note that the Express is limited at 100mbit unfortunately.

Streaming up to 100mbit should provide adequate speed for streaming 720p mkv right? How about 1080p?

Yeah, one sidenote, I believe only the newer airport expresses have 802.11n so keep that in mind if you're using an older model.

100mbit is plenty for 1080p, well at least its sufficient as I've never had anything stutter on me. 1080p mkv's and all that work perfect. It'll eat 720p alive.

Thanks for your input. What settings do you have on PS3 Media Server? What is your setup at home?

Thanks.

Oh, the most helpful thing was to upgrade to the beta floating in the forum here. It's version 1.1.1 I believe? Whatever, it's the new one.

Attached the 2 pics of settings.

My computer is:

Mac Mini
Core 2 Duo 1.83 ghz
2GB Ram
Let me know if you need any other stats.

Oh I'm going in hardwired
Mac > ATT uverse router > PS3

Let me know if you need anything else.

My equipment is the following:

Mac Mini (Early 2009) 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 4 GB RAM
Airport Extreme Basestation (Early 2009) Wireless N
Airport Express Express Wireless N Extender
PS3-596 Fatboy 40GB OS 3.01
PS3 is approximately 10' away from Airport Extreme w/ no obstacles and maintains a consistent 54mbps connection w/ Airport Extreme @ 100% signal strenth
PS3 is connected via HDMI to Denon AVR-3808CI

I have been reading with interest the challenges some are having with wireless streaming of 1080P content. I'm pleased to say I experienced none of the issues that are causing others frustration. I have caused the recent PMS Mac betas to do some heavy lifting and it works flawlessly every time. Using the TSMuxer, I recently watched Terminator.Salvation.2009.Director's.Cut.720p.BluRay.DTS.x264-WiKi 7.04GB and Inglourious.Basterds.1080p.BluRay.x264-METiS 11.74GB, both with DTS 5.1 in the stream, using 1-1-2 with no stuttering or pauses. I offer pictures of my settings and invite feedback (good, bad, or indifferent)!
