Did you make this change as indicated in the documentation?

Have you opened the appropriate ports in your firewall?

Allow Outbound:
TCP: 80, 443, 5223 and UDP: 3478, 3479.

Port Forward inbound
TCP: 9293 and UDP: 3658

Most major Linux distributions, Fedora included, enable the firewall by default. You will need to port forward on your router if you need access from the outside (for example if the PS3 is in the DMZ).

ah ha, i have turned off the fedora firewall and now the ps3 can see mediatomb.

Now its just a matter of adding my media.

can this be done as simple as

mediatomb -a /my/path/to/media ??????

Yes, you can add the path via command line, or if the web server is enabled, you can connect to http://localhost:49200/, and perform the addition by clicking on the '+' next to a directory in the filesystem, or the circled '+' to add the directory as an autoscan directory (self updating on file creation).

You have to transcode content that is not in a format that the PS3 wants.
