Works fine here. NetBSD-current/amd64 with mediatomb from
pkgsrc-current. The PS3 is connected over 100mbit LAN. I have not tried
the WLAN.

The only problem I have is that I have to set a scan rate for mediatomb
on the shared directories. Because of imaginary performance issues (??)
I do not want to have this set too often.. This results on newly
downloaded files not immediately shown on the PS3. I have been dreaming
of adding kevent support for mediatomb so it can listen for changes in
the supervised directories.. :-)
