Windows 7: All my Movies not showing up

16 Jan 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Thanks for quick reply and advice which I will try out - one thing I do notice is even when it is working the PS3 logo never appears in the Media Server status window as the instructions say it should, just a big wall plug.... strange.

Anyway, as always, I am grateful for the feedback and I'll post back if I can get it to work better.

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

Hmmm... If your seeing the wall plug and not a big green checkmark and a pic of a PS3 console on the main page then I would assume the server is being blocked somewhere along the way. A way to see if thats software blocking it is start the PS3 media server in "Safe Mode with Networking" and see if you get the checkmark. If not then I would look toward the router blocking or not giving the proper IP addy to the ps3. I assigned a address to my PS3 inside the router along with all the other comps, Iphone and Ipod devices.
You look in the network settings of the ps3 console and in there it would tell you if you what IP addy and MAC address the ps3 console is using and go from there. It will also show you in the console Network settings if your connecting to the network or not.
In the console settings maybe disable, reboot the PS3 and re enable the media server, who knows maybe it farted.
There is a help tab in the media server and scroll down to a FAQ section and that might help you out or lead you in a direction that will help solve your problem. They have a forum also in that help tab. You could post your issue and see what they say.

Hope you get it working properly cause its just awesome to be able to stream into our TV upstairs instead of all huddling around the computer monitor like the good ol days.

All working now - basically once I got the correct network settings all went well....

Now the Media Server logo appears on the PS3 and the files look the same as on the PC which they
did not do before and you always had to search for what you wanted.

Happy days - thanks for all of your replies and helping me get it working.
