I've had this with previous versions. Basically the media server starts up and doesn't find the PS3 and I see a NullPointerException error and I rescan the media library lots of DLN errors follow.

My Java version is the latest. There appears to be no indication that this program requires 64bit Java (I'm running 32bit) since I am on Vista 64bit Home Premium. 64bit as it says on Sun site is only if you use the 64bit version of IE which I don't.
My system is hooked up via a Ethernet cable to a DLINK 625 router. Wireless N router. I know that PS3 is not N. I'm not blocking anything I can see the ports are active to and from the router.
I read other threads on the forum by searching and the only one that seems to giving any success is actually running it 'As administrator'. I've tried running it as a service but there doesn't appear to be anyway to get to a configuration panel without re-launching the application. Then on uninstall it doesn't remove the service or the Program Files in the PS3 Media Server folder. To remove the service I ran this in an administrator command prompt..

Be nice to use this program without having to hassle around with it almost every time I reboot. When it works it's fantastic. The only other problem I have is the MP3 media art gets mixed up. Aerosmith for an AC/DC song for example. Hehehe.
Glad to provide whatever information you need if it helps to resolve the problem.
EDIT: I found this thread too but I see no .625 version available.
