In mythtv-setup, do you have the actual IP address of the backend or is 
it set to localhost/  I recall now that I had to change this 
to the actual IP.  Once that was done and mythbackend restarted, I was 
able to see it in my PS3.  I also had to install Mythvideo and Mythmusic 
so that I could adjust the directories to be able to see them on my 
PS3.  As for HD, I capture from firewire on a Motorola DCT6412 but when 
I play back on the PS3, I get no sound so I suspect I'm going to have to 
set up a transcode job or something.  I haven't really done much 
troubleshooting on that part yet since I have my frontend right next to 
my PS3.

Hope this helps,
