Highly recommended and completely gets rid of the headache of mkv files. Granted it takes a little CPU power and a little bit more hard drive space, but well worth the lack of headache in my book!

When playing the file in mpeg 16, the file id on the PS3 will say mpeg2 until you watch the video where it says mepg1. Then after changing the mpeg to 2, the file doesn't work.
Make sure you are doing a full restart of the Tversity server before doing this. Otherwise it will not refresh the profile.xml file that is in use and it will just fail.
Let me know what happens; there may be another cause, too.
After going through each thing case by case. It seems when I configure the max video bitrate in the config file above 8000000, the file wont play. I know back in 0.9, I was able to have both mpeg2 and my bitrate @ 20000000 and have no problems. For now, I have left it 8000000 but some of my HD problems have problems streaming where as at 20000000, it had none.

In your directions what you described sounded exactly like FFDShow.
I want to make this work, the 360 sounds like a vacuum cleaner and we prefer the interface of the PS3.
Today I'll reload the server completely and start a new.
I've played around with so many things, including Nero Home that I've installed and uninstalled 4 programs so best to start clean.

Sounds like a router or firewall issue. Keep in mind, if Tversity server IS running, you attempt to access it and it drops, for some reason your network is not allowing the PS3 and Tversity to properly communicate.
You need to make sure your ports are correctly forwarded, your router allows UPnP and that your firewall is giving access to the Tversity program for internet and the port is also forwarded in the firewall.
Tversity.com & the install program now recommend that you disable the service labled "UPnP Device Host" to be disabled. This is because the Tversity server basically does the same thing, but exclusively for Tversity.
Please let me know if this works; if it doesn't, I need a detailed description of how your router is setup, and the name brand & model wouldn't hurt either.
Also, and this seems like an obvious move, but is not enabled by default, go into your PS3 settings /Network Settings and make sure Media Server Connection is enabled. In theory, you won't be able to see the Tversity Media server if it is NOT, however I have heard that this is sometimes not the case, and possibly due to a recent firmware update, the setting gets changed to Disabled, but the server can still be seen but not accessed.
Same as before, I could find the Media server but after selecting video in PS3 it's disconnected and it won't connect anymore (even after fresh install).
Have followed your guide to the letter, don't know where the problem is.
Router: Sitecom 300N Wireless
Network: Wired (connection PS3 via Homeplug powerlink - internet no problem)
OS: XP Pro
Via services I can not start TVersity as well, it tries but gives messages 'started and stopped, some services stopping automatically when no ..........'

Now I get "Data is Corrupted" instead of the rights error. On the 360 I get "Data type is not supported"
When I play it in TVersity it downloads and plays fine in Media Player.
So I know I'm getting closer.
Any thoughts of what I might have missed?

I went to download 2.40 but it seems Sony is still having issues with it and no sense as when it will be available. So, I guess I will wait until it is available to try any further testing, unless you have any other suggestions.
The reason I use a switch is because I was just connecting my media Server PC and my PS3 without the router so that I could stream without stuttering. The rest of my house network uses the router in the network. But if I can get the stream to not stutter using the router than I will include my media PC and the PS3 in the same network. If this makes sense.
The dlink router is actually what is connected to the modem/internet.
The switch is actually a hub that I use as a separate local network between my media PC and my PS3 which I can connect the router to if I choose to.
Is your hub connected to the router, and via the hub to the router is how you access the internet?
If so, both your PS3 and PC connect to the hub, THEN the router. Keep in mind, the ROUTER ASSIGNS AN IP PER CONNECTION/PORT. I.E. If both your PS3 & PC connect to the hub, then from the hub to a *single* port on the router, then you are only getting *1 IP address* to connect to the internet for BOTH PS3 & PC.
Why do you use a hub?
I'd suggest connecting BOTH the PC & PS3 *directly* to the router & on separate ports, otherwise you are sharing an IP with both (most likely) as the router can't assign different IPs to individual ports on a hub. Your hub MAY assign a separate IP, but once the connection leaves the hub to the router, its only on 1 "pipe".
This is NOT true. Using DHCP, a router will assign addresses to every device connected to a hub or switch that is then connected to the router.
If both devices are connected to the hub and the hub is connected to the router, they BOTH get IP Addresses.
Easy to check, on the ps/3 look in the network setting, or sign into ps3 network, either will tell you it worked.
On the pc, go to start,run, cmd, type IPCONFIG and look for an ip address and gateway setting for your pc.

Installed TVersity RC1 with the TVersity codec pack, restart.
installed the Haali Splitter at that link, restart.
added a folder with .mkv files to TVersity, ran to my ps3 to watch a .mkv file and i get "The data is corrupted" message
so for some weird reason, the XP codec pack is the only one that will work but the audio is all messed up. do you have anymore suggestion?
