2. Ensure Windows Media Player Internet Sharing Service is running
3. Go to Tiles view
4. Put cursor in upper right hand corner to get side menu
5. Click settings
6. Click Ethernet Icon
7. Right Click on Network
8. Turn Sharing ON

9. In PS3 Media Player Force IP address to
Forcing port is optional if you run a netstat -a and don't see PMS running on port
change it to a diferent port.

After changes about PMS was able to find my playstation

Has this solution worked for anyone trying to stream from Windows 8 to PS3?

Does this enable everything that we are used to with PSM on Windows 7?

I appreciate the help from this forum. Thanks.
