In order to help you need to

In order to help you need to connect with the account root.
Then you can make the test manually with the following command:
NAS> cd /usr/pms/
NAS> export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java
NAS> export PMS_HOME=/usr/pms
NAS> ./PMS.sh
GUI environment no available
Switching to console mode
[main] TRACE 15:42:21.020 Starting Java PS3 Media Server v1.20.412
...

If it s working just make sure your pms start as root

For me i have one problem regarding the mkv file. Since the PS3 cannot read mkv i thought that pms will help me to read them but i can t find the solution. If someone can help let me know.

Syntax error

When running:
./PMS.sh
I get this error: "/usr/java/bin/java: line 1: syntax error: unexpected "("

What do I do wrong?
