Corei7 + Windows 7 64bit = PERFECT

Postby ayembee » Mon Feb 09, 2009 4:07 am

I admit, I'm living a little dangerously by running the 64bit Windows 7 beta, but you know what? This PS3 Media Serverworks PERFECTLY. I enabled 8-core decoding (i have a 940 quad with hyperthreading) and I couldn't be happier. It's stable, simple, and effective. TVersity has been uninstalled forever and will never, ever return to my filesystem. Every file format I have thrown at it works, and 1080p transcoding is smooth as you could imagine. I setup a dual-boot with Ubuntu 64bit this weekend, and will install it under linux too, so no matter which OS I happen to be using at the time, we'll always be able to access our media over the home ethernet.

A huge thank you to the developers! Simply awesome.

are you able to run it as a service?

For me this is not possible. When run as a windows service, the PS3 won't see PS3MS. Only when I start manually, it will work perfectly.

am using Core i7 920 with Win7 64bit :)

Hi 5

I got the same setup (but a 920) and everything works flawless.

@wjharing; haven't tried running as a service, i tend to load it once by hand and leave it at that (will try it out and see if it works, could be a handy way to run it...)
