Troubleshooting - PMS - Renaming PS3 Media Server
Error: There is no option to rename PMS in GUI. I want to run more than one PMS instance in my home network and identify them easily.
Solution: There is no easy solution. One has to change sourcecode and compile PMS in order to get a renamed version of it.
I thought I would share my experience with this, hopefully it hasn't already been posted elsewhere (I did a quick search and didn't find anything).
You can rename your media server (after it has been installed) by following these steps:
1. Open C:\Program Files\PS3 Media Server\pms.jar with WinRAR.
2. From within WinRAR open the resources folder and extract PMS.xml (keep WinRAR open).
3. Open your extracted PMS.xml with notepad and enter the name for your server inside the <friendlyName> and </friendlyName> tags.
4. Save the PMS.xml
5. Within WinRAR, select "Add" from the top toolbar and navigate to your customized PMS.xml
6. Exit WinRAR.
7. Test your work
Hopefully this helps someone, let me know if I have made any errors.
