PMS on Win8 64bit always freezing

Postby Berserk » Mon Jul 15, 2013 3:08 pm

Hello,

I've setup PMS on my computer and it works but after 20 minutes or so it always freezes up , this has happened 5 times and alwyas with another video file. It also disables my network on my computer completely. I can't go on the internet unless the pc has been restarted.

My computers specs (just new from june 2013):

Intel I5 4570 3.2 GHz
8GB DDR3 ram
NO videocard (just the the igpu)

I have windows 8 64bit and I installed PMS (latest version) along with the latest version of Java 64bit

ANy ideas why PMS keeps freeing after 20-30 minutes? Did I forget something?

Ok please someone help me!

PMS just doesn't work for me. I've updated PMS to 1.90, I've updated java to the last version and installed the 32 bit AND 64 bit version for my windows 8 64 bit pc.

The problem is when i stream a HD movie after a couple of minutes, the network is disconnected and also on my computer the connection is lost to the internet in general!!
I have to reset the computer to re - enable internet. I have a wired network.

What do i do wrong???

here is a debug log if that helps

Nothing in the log indicates that PMS is having networking troubles.

As far as I'm aware, there is nothing PMS can do to upset your local network. It opens a port and broadcasts that it's alive, and when your PS3 connects some info is sent back and forth:

Code: Select all
INFO  2013-08-03 21:31:46.831 [main] Created socket: /192.168.0.100:5001
DEBUG 2013-08-03 21:31:46.909 [main] Sending ALIVE...
...
INFO  2013-08-03 21:32:08.369 [UPNPHelper] No IP filter specified, access granted to /192.168.0.200
INFO  2013-08-03 21:32:12.853 [pool-7-thread-1] Checking IP: 192.168.0.200 for PlayStation 3


This in itself cannot lead to your computer losing its connection to the internet.

So the question is: exactly what is causing your connection loss? And how is that related to traffic from PMS?
Maybe the FAQ contains some tips for your particular setup. If not, try googling for similar problems.

Yeah I know the log doesn't mention the connection is lost but the PS3 says there is a network problem and stops playing and when I check on the computer the whole internet connection is lost (no ip)
BUT PMS program still has a checkmark on the PS3??

What are the best sttings for "bandwith", " transcode buffer" when you know I have enought cpu power, RAM and a wired connection? And I read somewhere that you can fiddle with java heap size??

The PS3 always mentions this error: 80710723 Possible Port Error - Try opening ports , TCP port: 80, 443, 5223 and UDP
port: 3478, 3479, 3658. or add Ps3 to DMZ

I have already put my PS3 in a DMZ a week ago but still gives me that error

I had exactly the same problem but with Windows 7. I rolled back to PMS 1.72 and it worked out perfectly fine for me. Updated to 1.90 and it still works

i also tried everything with DMZ, ports, routers, switching, static IP, firewall, AV

Didn't you do anything else? It is just weird, only with running PMS the network disables on my pc. I 've put PMS in the firewall exceptions. What are your other settings? Buffer? Bandwith? did you force ip? Tell me please because i'm getting frustrated. On my previous computer (old computer from 2007) it ran fine, except 1080p films but my new computer with haswell i5 processor should handle it fine now. I just think my network settings are not calibrated correctly.

Oh yeah I must mentions, Plex media server also freezes playback and disables my network connection

bump.

I checked what actually happens on PMS on the computer: the buffer fills and a couple of seconds after it's full the bitrate drops do 0 MB/sec and then the movie on the ps3 stops playing, and on my pc the internet is disabled (yellow mark on network icon) and I have to restart the computer...

I didn't do anything besides reinstalled Windows. Installed PMS 1.72 and then performed the newest update of PMS 1.90. I removed to old version via control panel/uninstall applications
