PlayTV advertises that it can be done, but no instructions on how (the website tells you how for a PSP, but not the Vaio). I've seen quite a few forums of people asking how, but no answers.

After some scratching around, I found the software (my Vaio did not come preloaded, found a link on some hacker site, that gave me the file name [EP0000220888] which google gave the sony download http://www.sony.com.au/support/download/395216).

This required the DirectX ooptional components, so I run the DirectX 11 i.e. Win 7 only (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&dis...).

Found a update pack on the Sony NZ site [EP0000230483] so installed that.

From the PS3, select Settings, Remote Play Settings, Register Device and select new, an 8 digit code presented.

Started the Remote Play application on the Vaio and entered the code, pair confirmed.

Now stuck will message "The PlayStation System could not be found. Check whether the PlayStation system is in remote play standby", turned on the remote play standby and turn off as per this forum http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-3-General-Discussion/PS3-PSP-Remote-Play-issues/t....

Connected again and the remote session started up the PS3 and screen advised that Remote Plat was in progress and the screen rendered on the Vaio

Final note: for internet access, set a static (or reserved) IP on the PS3. Start it up and let it connect to the PlayStation network (external IP is lodged with the PSN), set you router to forward TCP&UDP on port 9293 to the PS3 IP address, then start the Remote Play application, signon and let the connection establish.

I tested this using Vodafone network (N8 to Vaio using USB) back to the home network. If you are doing this, warn the folks at home so they are not surprised by the PS3 randomly starting up when the remote play is launched.

ps. Now that I have this working I realise this is not a PlayTV (FreeView) feature, it's a generic PS3 feature, i.e. when it's going you can watch FreeView remotely, or recorded material, or any other PS3 function, i.e. you could play a game or play media from DLNA, i.e. anything it can do locally, but at 576 rather than 1080.

Note: PlayTV does not provide the PS3 with an upgraded codec, i.e. HE-AAC material will still not play from another source, only material teh PS3 has recorded itself.

Yeah it's important to remember that PlayTV is software that runs on the PS3 and uses a plug in usb tuner.  It's not native to the PS3 as such, meaning it still takes 30 seconds or so to start up, just like a game etc.  Good point.

This was more a reference to using the PS3 as a media player, rather than the device startup time. I have a Panasonic FreeView PVR which has an inbuilt DLNA server, therefore the PS3 can see content on the Panasonic however, it could not (and still can not) play HE-AAC content, i.e. TV 1, 2 & Prime.

no worries, I fully get that and was actually just agreeing with you.

PlayTV is software and can handle those audio formats for shows you view and record from within PlayTV. PlayTV does not upgrade the native media players in the PS3. Thought I'd reaffirm that for other readers was all.

Just wanted to say thanks for this info. I just got a new Vaio, and have a PS3, and had read about this remote play feature. But it came without remote play on the Vaio. So I installed that, downloaded from the sony asia support website, but then it wouldn't work. I knew it was a DirectX issue, but I didn't know about that web runtime installer, which solved my problem.

Cheers!

An additional update has been made available http://www.sony.co.nz/support/download/442263 [EP0000242243.exe
] which upgrades Remote Play to 1.1.0.12240 (previous upgrade was to 1.0.2.06212).

Note: install this while you have local access to your PS3 as the upgrade removed any existing registrations.

Some further updates. If you have the previous version of RemotePlay (namely 1.0.2.06212) you may be best to uninstall it and install 1.1.0.12240 clean. I found the previous version opened unexpected Windows theme dialogues, which 1.1.0.12240 does not when installed clean.

With the recent PS3 updates which include HE-AAC CODEC I can now play FreeView content from my Panasonic DVR (via DLNA), previously I could only play material recorded with PlayTV.

Since PSN network was restored after last years outage I also found my PS3 activation was listed as active on the website, but I needed to activate it again to get it working.

For a new setup the steps are (without using UPnP)

On the router
  • Set a reserved IP address for the PS3
  • Port forward UDP & TCP traffic on port 9293 to the reserved IP address
On Vaio
  • Install Remote Play
  • Start remote play (while connected to the same local network as the PS3) and select register device and leave at this screen, proceed to PS3 steps
On PS3
  • Start the PS3 and check Settings -> Network Settings -> Settings and Connection Status list, verify the reserved IP address defined in the router has been applied
  • Create/login PSN account
    PlayStation Network -> Account Management -> System Activation -> PS3 System, and activate the PS3 as a game device
  • Settings -> Remote Play Settings -> Register Device, a code will be provided, enter this on the Vaio to pair the devices
  • In the same menu (Remote Play Settings) select Remote Start and set to On
  • Turn off the PlayStation, the green standby light should be on
Back to the Vaio
  • Connect via Home Network, the PS3, the PS3 should beep and start, once started it should render on the Vaio (note: no credential challenge will occur)
  • Use the keyboard to shutdown the PS3 (default is arrow keys and ‘Z’ to select) and close Remote Play
  • From a separate network (i.e. not the local network), open Remote Play and select Connect via Internet, this will challenge for PSN credentials, once entered, the connection should work as per local network

Note: I've not been able to get this to connect remotely for a while now. Tried logging a support request with Sony (you can imagine how far that has got me).

So the PS3 team blame PSN, PSN blame Vaio ... you can see where this is going.

So I created a VPN connection to home to eliminate PSN not knowing where my PS3 is from the equation, the challenge now is that I have two connections in my Vaio (WiFi and VPN), does anyone know how to force the Remote Play software to look at the VPN connection?
