I'm really pleased with the easy-to-use interface of the PS3 Media Server. I am new to this all so it was a great surprise! I instantly connected and was able to browse my older Apple Powerbook without any issues, save one.
I tried queuing up an album of MP3s (stored on my Powerbook) on the PS3 and there was a ~30 second delay before each track played. For a lack of better term, I imagined this is the data "buffering" as the PS3 prepares to play each track. Is there any way for me to adjust a setting that would help prevent this from happening? I haven't tested video streaming yet, hopefully there's no issues there.
