    Yeah.... uhm. You're a bit late on this. I've been using this for ages when I sit downstairs with my ps3 and I've got a movie I want to watch.

    The xbox can't be wireless connected on a mediaserver, but it requires a ethernet cable. You also need xbox live for it though.
    I once followed a guide to make my banned xbox360 into a mediaserver, but it wouldn't work without xbox live.

    oh thats strange lol, oh well it sounds u got it working now though :P unless u own both a xbox and ps3.
    the 1080p releases of sword art online from horriblesubs (anime) look amazing on my sony bravia television in vivid mode lol. (dont worry i will buy it once they release a dvd collection, which is probably still years from now on lol) not a single stutter either. im gonna rewatch all my anime that are not for sale anymore, or not for sale yet :P or just too darn expensive to buy like all eps of bleach and naruto lol. hellsing ultimate 5 till episode 9 isnt for sale in my country yet either so i can watch those too now :3

    Sounds unnecessary. I've always just used the hdmi cord from the ps3 and connected it from my laptop to the back of the TV, or if its my macbook I use a DVI adapter.

    with this you dont need that hdmi cord :P and u dont need your laptop either since all files are accessed from your ps3. (the laptop just needs to be on)
    i can just go chill on the couch, grab my controller and access my video files on my pc

    I wasn't aware of this. I'm going to look into it.

    Aw. Its pretty sweet. I don't mind paying the $8 a month for the convenience. Its not that I am morally against piracy nor that I don't know how to do it. Its just that I'm too lazy to even steal things LOL. What has this digital age done to me!?

    PLEX Media Server > PS3 Media Server. PS3's Media Server has far too much CPU usage.
