Setting up a digital home network with your VAIO Stream photos, video and music from your VAIO notebook to a PlayStation3 console… What you need: • A VAIO Notebook with VAIO Media Plus software (included on most VAIO models sold since around mid-2008) • PlayS A PlayStation3 console with up-to-date system firmware, connected to your television • router. A network router Most homes with broadband Internet already have a suitable modem/router. Routers with wireless networking capability (e.g. 802.11b/g/n) are ideal for this purpose as they let you place DLNA clients anywhere in your home. NOTE: Most wireless data transfer speeds are not as fast as the wired equivalent, meaning playback performance for high resolution photos and, especially, video may be slower than expected. set- Media formats supported by this network set-up PlayStation3 supports an increasing range of media file formats, including: • Video: MPG, MP4, DV-AVI, DivX (except v3.11), AVCHD, WMV • Audio: WAV, MP3, AAC, ATRAC, WMA • Photo: JPEG, BMP, GIF, TIFF, PNG The following formats are not supported at this stage: Protected content, lossless audio formats (including Apple Lossless, FLAC, etc.), RAW image files, VOB video files. ____________________________________________________________________________________ What to do 1. Connect your VAIO to your network. In most cases this is simply is a matter of connecting to your wireless network (entering the security key if required) or plugging in an Ethernet cable to the network port on your VAIO. Connection options are available in the Windows Vista Taskbar (normally found next to the clock on your VAIO screen). 2. 2. Connect your PlayStation3 to the same network. PlayS From the PS3 console’s main menu, navigate to Settings (the toolbox icon), then ‘Network Settings’ – ‘Internet Connection Settings’ (Check that ‘Internet Connection’ and ‘Media Server Connection’ are enabled in this same Network Settings menu while you’re there) Select Wired or Wireless to suit your connection, and follow the steps in the wizard. Now that both your VAIO and the PS3 are connected to the same network, you need to set up media sharing. VAIO Media Plus and DLNA make this simple: 3. Launch media sharing on your VAIO Tap the ‘Windows’ key on the VAIO keyboard to open the Windows menu and type “Plus” in the instant-search box. VAIO Media plus should appear at the top of the Programs list – hit “Enter” to launch it. 4. Run the ‘Easy Setup’ wizard on your VAIO The first time you run Media Plus, you should use the Easy Setup function. Follow the steps in the online help wizard to enable media sharing on your VAIO. This will enable sharing of default media files and folders (for example ‘My Music’ and ‘My Pictures’ on your VAIO). analyse 5. Find and analyse the media on your VAIO VAIO Media Plus starts finding and analysing your media. This may take several minutes, depending on how many files are available. As this completes your media will be available in the music, video, photos and TV menus in the Media Plus interface. 6. Add any additional media If some of your media folders are not available in Media Plus, you can manually add these by selecting the ‘Share Folder Settings’ in Communications Settings under the Settings Toolbox icon in the Media Plus interface. 7. Share the media on your PS3 Navigate to any of the media menus (photo, video or music) on your PS3, and select ‘Search for Media Servers’. After a short search, the console should find the VAIO Media Plus server on the network. Enjoy your new digital home network! Having set up your VAIO and PS3 - you should now be able to view all your VAIO photos and video, and listen to music on your TV and home theatre system (through the PS3), by navigating to the music, video and photo menus in the PS3 menu. You can also view different media simultaneously on the VAIO and the PS3. Disclaimer: As each home network has its own security settings, data transfer speeds, and hardware capabilities, this set-up guide cannot be guaranteed to work in all network environments.
