I am running mediatomb on my ps3 via a debian server, When i connect to the media server it displays the contents underneath. maybe try disconnecting from the media server and re connecting...only other idea is mediatomb had some string I had to put in during the config did the xbmc wiki have the ps3 info?

well from what i gathered around people were talking about how xbmc was easy to use and install it works fine on my computer im just wondering why i can't access the files on my ps3 there has to be some thing thats blocking the files beacuse even if the ps3 werent able to play said files they would still appear. so my guess is that theres a file that needs configuring that didnt get configured automaticly with the gui end or somthing on that idea. or is that u need a login /pass to acess the server? becuase i am not promted to when i acess it via ps3? or maybe the ps3 needs configureing to acess the files except i can't find anything in the system tool's etc.. that relates to media server files it just asks enble/disable media sever xbmc. id rather fix this issue i have with xbmc than installl another media server that would probaly give me the same issue im having. plus if you got a flat tire on your car would you just call someone to tow your car and spend x amount of dollars or just carry a spare, some tools and fix it yourself?

im actually not sure what happend but my problem is solved and the media server is indeed running. i really didnt do anything all i did was install mysql gui tools and then i ran xbmc again and turned on my ps3 and opend the media server and magically the files appeared. it must beone of the miracles the penguin produces .
