During the hollidays I was visiting some friends for a round of junkfood and movies. As one of my friends was showing off his new tv I noticed how his menues looked a lot like what I get when accessing my PS3 over the network. I know however that he does not own a PS3. so I got curious. It turnes out that he had installed a PS3 media server on his PC.
I had never heard about the PS3 media server before, so I looked into what it has to offer. It turnes out that it is a free application that makes it possible to allow access to any folder on your network through the PS3. This was a limitation that had annoyed me immensely when using the PS3 to access media on my LAN (my Synology NAS box actually was the one giving me a hard time), so I quickly downloaded and installed the media server on my own box. It worked without any questions asked, and solved the one thing that I was not happy with when using my PS3 to play movies and music. So I can only give it my clear recommendation.
