Ok, i think the reason it was running slowly was because i simply transplanted the HDD with windows on into a new machine - it was nothing to do with PMS, it was a network/OS issue. I have just reinstalled Windows Home Server fresh. Network transfers are much faster and i can stream no problems from server to computer.
But now when i install PMS it doesn't show up on my PS3. The router settings are the same since the machine has the same IP address. So the only things that can be different is either the windows Firewall or the PMS settings. I've checked the firewall and it has PMS as an allowed program. I've forced PMS to use the correct network card (yes its a gigabit, as is the router) but i just can't get it to show on the PS3. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times but to no avail.
I haven't installed it as a service, rather i have just added a shortcut to the Startup folder. But i don't see how that should have any affect on it working once started
Here's the last few lines of logs:

The 192.168.2.9 address is the PS3. does that help?
