I'm trying to ge my PS3 hook up into my network to access files, ie: Music, videos, photos.
I have the home networking setup already for PC's.
Using the DLNA client feature
You can now display images or play music or video files that are stored on a personal computer or digital video recorder with DLNA Media Server functionality over a network.
What is DLNA?
DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) is a standard that enables digital devices such as personal computers, digital video recorders, and TVs to be connected on a network and to share data that is on the connected DLNA-compatible devices.
DLNA-compatible devices serve two different functions. "Servers" distribute media such as image, music, or video files while "clients" receive and play the media. Some devices perform both functions. Using a PS3™ system as a client, you can display images or play music or video files that are stored on a device with DLNA Media Server functionality over a network.
Playing DLNA Media Server content
- To use a PS3™ system as a DLNA client, you must first enable [Media Server Connection] under (Settings) >
- Within the network you can connect devices that are compatible with DLNA such as Sony Room Link, Microsoft® Windows® XP, or Microsoft® Windows Vista™ personal computers that have Windows Media® Player 11 installed. For details on setting up a DLNA-compatible device, refer to the instructions supplied with the device.
When you turn on the PS3™ system, DLNA Media Servers on the same network are automatically detected and icons for the detected servers are displayed under (Photo), (Music), or (Video). If you select an icon, you can play content that is available for shared access on the DLNA Media Server.
Searching for DLNA Media Servers manually
- You cannot play copyright-protected content.
If you select (Search for Media Servers) under (Photo), (Music), or (Video), you can initiate a search for DLNA Media Servers on the same network. Use this feature if no DLNA Media Server is detected when the PS3™ system is turned on.
The Search for Media Servers is not finding my home network. Also, I have to have WMP11? That software is fucking junk.
