    Total noob question here:

    I'm trying to set up the media sharing ability of my PS3 and home computer. I've got WMP 11 set-up as a DLNA server and when I go to share the media it recognizes an unknown device (my PS3 - I assume). Now my computer shows up on the PS3, but when I click to view the media it shows the following statement,

    "Access to the media server is not allowed. It is possible that the system name for this PS3 system "PS3-XXX", has not been registered. Check the settings for the media server."

    How do I "register" my PS3 name? What exactly does that mean anyway?

    Any help would be appreciated.
