PMS Not Detecting PS3/Xbox360 on Win XP

Postby Lakart » Mon Dec 20, 2010 2:08 pm

Simple, Installed PMS on Windows XP and it doesn't detect my PS3 or Xbox 360 or any other media device. I have it installed on another computer(running win 7) and it detects the PS3, 360 and several other things on there fine. UPNP is enabled, java is installed & up to date, tried changing network settings and changing the port. The bit at the end of the Trace is what I think might be an issue but I don't know anything about those sorts of things so I can't tell what might be wrong.

1) Intel Pentium 4 3.4GHz , 3.24GB mem, Win XP SP3 v1.20.412
2) Streaming to PS3/Xbox 360
3) PC <- Wired -> Westell A90-750015-07 <- Wifi -> PS3
4) N/A
5) Doesn't detect media streaming devices.

It's not very helpful to post a link to a page and then not offer any extra information about what part of the page you are referring to, just saying.

Also, nothing on that page helped.

From that page:
meskibob wrote:PMS can't bind to the port/IP on the NIC:
Some other program is already using that port
= Check with "netstat" through the command line, and change the port in the PMS settings if needed

A software firewall is blocking javaw.exe (and wrapper.exe if running as a Windows service) from binding to the port
= Open the firewall settings and make sure the .exe's are allowed or the specific port is open

You forced the wrong IP address in the PMS settings
= Force the correct IP address (the IP address of the server) or clear the setting
Note: you should only have to the force IP if you've assigned multiple IPs to a single NIC

You opened multiple instances of PMS or a javaw.exe process got hung up:
= Close all open instances of PMS and then kill any* remaining javaw.exe processes
*You may have other programs using javaw.exe, so exercise due diligence in killing the tasks.

It's not very helpful if one doesn't actually read and try the provided content (it's not that big of a post, and if you actually read the beginning you can limit the scope even further).
Now, there may be an issue that leads to your error that isn't covered on this help page, in which case it'd be very helpful to actually determine what that issue is so it can be added. But I have not seen any issues yet that aren't covered by the points above or resolved by more fixing systemic issues with one's entire computer.

Except the fact that I TOLD you that nothing on the page helped, as in I didnt just look at it and decide "oh screw it theres no point" but actually attempted fixing it through what the page explained.

As in A) Port not in use, B) IP address not incorrect, C) multiple instances of PMS not present and nothing else using javaw.exe

Fair enough. My apologies.
A quick google seems to indicate that this error usually pops up through java not being able to access/modify the multicast settings on the network interface. Are you using any sort of multicast forwarding or is multicast disabled on your NIC? I haven't seen it come up in this fashion before, but do you have any sort of software firewall or protection program that might block multicast modifications?

I apologize too, I was being an ass.
I don't know of any multicast forwarding going on or any software firewall or protection program that might block multicast modifications. Another computer(my win 7 computer) on the same network is running the same antivirus and interacts with the same router and has no problems using PMS.

As for if multicast is disabled on the NIC I don't really know how to tell if it is or not.

It should be under the driver/device settings through the Device Manager.

Another thing to check is your Java install, whether it's fully up-to-date or you could try with a different repo.

Java is installed & up to date. I can't find the option to disable or enable multicasting...
