So long as you've got myth's upnp plugin installed and you connect the PS3 to your network, the PS3 will automatically find the myth box and allow you to browse and watch recordings on your TV. Works like a charm for me.

The last I checked, there are problems with Mythfrontend on PS3 Linux 
due to the restricted access to video adapter.

I'm just about to try OpenSuSE 11.0 RC1 on my son's shiny new PS3, 
bought of course purely for HIS enjoyment; I would never think of buying 
any of my children gifts that were really for me.

I'll let you know how I get on with mythfrontend in that setup.

As other people have noted, mythbackend's UPNP mediacentre support 
allows PS3 to play video (MPEG and DivX) from a mythbackend, however no 
live TV etc.


Finally - A spam blocker that actually works.
