psms not showing on ps3

Postby Apollo21 » Fri Oct 05, 2012 2:55 pm

Hi
i wonder if anyone can help,ihave read all the tutorials, and loads of posts but its hard to find anything specific.
I have recently set psms and xbmc up on my Laptop and they work fine,I decided that if i had it on my PC, it might be faster as its wired,here is where im at.

1/ps3 wont detect anything.

2/In ps3ms I have detected ps3 renderer ,this can only be done if i select ( dont automatically allow devices to play my media )i can then switch on allow media to be played ,and this does not change anything.

3/I think windows is detecting my pc as the place to play xmbc instead of ps3 but as i have only started using these prgs a week ago i really dont know where to start,maybe someone else as had this prob.
An extract from my config


thumbnails = true
image_thumbnails = true
alternativeffmpegpath = C:\\Program Files\\PS3 Media Server\\win32\\dvrms\\ffmpeg_MPGMUX.exe
engines = pmsencoder,mencoder,tsmuxer,ffmpegvideo,ffmpegaudio,mplayeraudio,tsmuxeraudio,ffmpegwebvideo,vlcvideo,mencoderwebvideo,mplayervideodump,mplayerwebaudio,vlcaudio,ffmpegdvrmsremux,rawthumbs
mencoder_ass = true
mencoder_fontconfig = true
mencoder_ass_defaultstyle = true
uuid = af9c1fb6-fee2-4987-b70a-4eab73981d52
renderer_default = Playstation 3
prevents_sleep_mode = true
renderer_force_default = true
maximumbitrate = 0
python.path = c:\\Python27\\python.exe
rtmpdump.path = C:\\PROGRA~1\\PS3MED~1\\win32\\rtmpdump.exe
pmsxbmc.db.video = C:\\Users\\MadMonk\\AppData\\Roaming\\XBMC\\userdata\\Database\\MyVideos60.db
pmsxbmc.db.music = C:\\Users\\MadMonk\\AppData\\Roaming\\XBMC\\userdata\\Database\\MyMusic18.db
network_interface = eth3


im prety sure the problem lies with wmp,i am not sure, but im going round in circles if anyone could help i would appreciate it so much.

kind regards

Apollo

As you were directed earlier in the other thread, follow the FAQ post regarding connection issues:
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3507&start=20#p34933
Go step by step and check every single point. If you have questions about a point, give Google a search or post them here.
And if you do want help here, you should post your debug.log - viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3507&start=30#p38484
I provide NO application support via PM or email, so please post your question to the forum per the Forum Rules.

Hi
thanks for your reply, i think your being a bit harsh,as i said i ama new user,all i was asking for was a bit of help and i havent figured out how to post debuglog yet.if you dont want to help fine ,but i was told best place to ask was here within the other thread.

Just as a matter of interest the links you gave me i have been through several times,i dont understand alot of it, all i wanted was help in plain english,so i can understand.

Terse maybe, but I don't think harsh.
Without being able to sit at your computer with you, there's not really much more we can do other than interpret the information you provide and provide you with recommendations.
The first FAQ post that was provided gives an extensive list of common recommendations if you want to troubleshoot for yourself, and the second FAQ post tells you how to give us the additional information needed for us to directly help you.
Again, if you have a directed question on a specific recommendation or a step in providing the debug.log, go ahead and post it here.

Hi
Again thanks for your reply ,i understand what your saying,but i am a new 66yr old user and not clever enough to troubleshoot myself .
My main problem is i cant get wmp to show on ps3 ,having recently set pms ,xmbc ,and wmp on ps3 without much trouble,i think if i could get wmp to stream to ps3 it would solve the problem to a great degree, i have tried the obvious without any joy. Firewall,Services and a few other things,i just stumped.
i have been troubleshooting the prog ,and windowsin my own way ,for the last 7 days .

Sounds as if you're clever enough already. Have you tried asking help from a friend who is more tech savvy?
You wouldn't be the first to have someone over to help with setting everything up properly.

The FAQ links that meskibob posted should cover everything one needs to know.
If there is anything we can do to improve the information there, let us know.
