I am using the latest revision of ps3 media server on my laptop (dual core 2.4 ghz gateway fx gaming laptop) through a dlink dir-655 router. I have absolutely no issue streaming tv shows and movies that are on the laptop. When I play mp3 files they will play for a little while and then abruptly quit like the buffer is running out and it needs to fill before it continues. This issue is the same as the link below but their fix is to change mp3 streaming to 48bit (under ps3 music settings). I am unable to find an option for 48 bit but there is one for 48khz. When I change to that option I get no sound at all. Anyone else with this issue or can tell me what to change to get it to work properly?

Like I said in original post. I get no sound when i change it to 48 khz. Do I need to change something else to get sound when it is set to 48 khz? Have ps3 running to NAD t747 via hdmi.

What is your network setup, wired or wireless or both? Are the mp3's drm'd?

Both of our computers are upstairs and are wireless. The router was moved downstairs so that the ps3 could be hardwired for gaming.


The mp3's are not drm'd.

Hmm, you shouldnt have a problem streaming mp3's with that setup. HD video might be a problem going from wireless to the wired ps3, but audio should not. Try uninstalling PS3 Media Server, and download the newest version from their site.

I appreciate you keeping up on this sitlet. Help is always appreciated. Unfortunately I was using a previous version with the same issue and uninstalled and installed the latest version that had come out recently. Still have the same issue. I am going to go to 48khz again and play with other settings to see if I can figure out what might stopping the audio when it is set that way.


If you have any other ideas...keep them coming. I really want to get this working. Maybe I just need to move to NAS or a external harddrive instead...I just didn't want to spend the money.

I switched back to 48 khz and for some reason I have audio this time. Must have been some glitch last time -- yes the volume was up and not muted
. I didn't have time to let it run awhile last night to check if it would stutter, but i'm expecting this to work.

This apparently is a common issue, and although changing the settings to 48 khz fixes the issue, im not happy. The other setting sound better and so I want to use it. Does anyone know of a way to play mp3's on the higher setting without the skipping?
