Straight to the point, i've heard somewhere that you can use the PS3 as a media streamer. Currently mine is connected to my wireless network for updates and its sole purpose is for gaming 10% of the time and Blu Ray 90% of the time. I'm quite keen to get the most out of my equipment but feel i haven't really scratched the surface of this. Can anyone elighten me on this or any other features i may not have discovered?

Thanks in advance

You can connect to your pc using Red Kawa File Server, download here http://www.redkawa.com/fileserver/

Some files won't stream but those can be saved to your PS3 hard disk. You can convert MKV files using MKV2VOB and these will stream to your PS3 with surround sound.

If my thinking is right, your wireless network is live all the time. If you go into the setting on the PS3 you will find one that will scan for music, video and photos (the PC has to be on to do this though)a oain if you want to stream all the time. Once the scan is complete it will automatically find your network and pc and the content will then be available.

OK. Firstly, you cannot use the PS3 as a media streamer. Use can use it as a media client. The PC or some other network attached Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) device will do the streaming.

So, assuming you are using a PC as a media server, you need to get software installed onto it to do the streaming. I use TVersity as it allows on the fly transcoding of .flac files to PCM (a format supported by the PS3).

Once the software on the PC is configured, it's simply a matter of searching for the media server on your PS3 and Bob's your uncle.
