So behind on posting...

So after having my PS3 for years (well, after having _a_ PS3 for years. This is my second one after the first one died.) i finally got around to figuring out how to use my computer as a media server. It took a couple minutes of searching for a guide and flipping a couple settings on my computer, though i have a vague impression it's a bit harder if you're not using Windows 7.

Of course then there was figuring out how to add stuff to Windows Media Player. It seems there's no way to add individual files for streaming? I have to select a specific folder and everything in that folder tree will be automatically added? Kinda annoying.

So what prompted get around to it after all this time? I wanted to watch Megamind. For the fifth or sixth time. But i wanted to use my computer for something else at the same time and the copy on our DVR is missing the first 10 minutes :)
