I'm using the Playstation (3) Media Server version 1.20.412 and I can't seem to speed up the transmission of music across the network. I'm actually having 2 problems. One, I can't seem to get a playlist created that will work and play one song after another.
The second problem is the speed. Whenever I load a song, it takes about 40 seconds for it to load and start playing. That's way too long for a simple mp3. These are only 112 Kbps mp3 files. Nothing fancy.

Is there something I should be doing to the files or the settings on the server itself to speed up the transfer?

Also, are there any other media server alternatives? I'm doing this testing on my netbook in preparation for setting up the media server computer.

I guess I really need a recommendation for another playstation media server. The one I'm using keeps freezing and crashing my system and I'm forced to power off the machine to get it back up.
