Great work yours. I appreciate this project, with ability to read NTFS HDD would be the best.
I am preparing an icon, background music and presentation for your project. In a few days I show you
Thanks for this contribution a greeting Jero_Forne

sorry for my English. Multiman uses some libraries to read NTFS HDD.
I think it does psl1ght. I'm not a programmer, but I think these are the libraries.
I hope it will some of this. The read-only NTFS achieved, good for watching movies.
If this is not good, I can talk to Deank (creator of Multimar) to give me the libraries. from what I read is that it is compiled with psl1lght.
When I have time I pass the error with codecs. Well we are in contact.
Thanks for your work is good.

In https://www.lonelycoder.com/redmine/boards/15/topics/189?r=449#message-449 have more information of ntfs suport..
Multiman work with NTFS to play music or copy file to internal HDD.

Also it seems there is an example compiled with psl1ght.

How about put your disks in a NAS DLNA compatible. Ethernet > USB
Also I dont think, in all cases, softwares have to support lacks of any OS.
Dean brings NTFS support on Multiman, but a fine way will be a NTFS support on PS3 directly. Through another CFW or some Pkg...

I'm using my PC as a NAS as it comes to media.
Watching video on my PC is certainly not equal to watch it on my TV via PS3/Showtime or PMS.
Depends on your TV size maybe.
It seems you really need to be able to use showtime with an external HDD, but I still dont get it completely. I can't get the practical in copy/paste file from PC to HDD when you could just stream.

You can connect the HDMI / RGA from your PC to your TV ... this is not the problem
The issue is the convenience of just using the ps3 with showtime and have a Media Center, without relying on a PC capable of transcoding the video.
The HD on my PS3 is 320GB, which is very little to 1080p HD movies. Besides the delay of 1 GB per minute to make the transfer whenever I need to see a movie download directly from freshly external hard drive.
I used a media player (Xtreamer) and this was linux and NTFS has perfect perfectly reproducing 1080p videos directly from an external disk. (all media players are capable of it) - at the moment is a limitation of the PS3, which has been circumvented (in a very precarious) by multiman, and may indeed be implemented by showtime. - So I posted a reference to the open source Linux NTFS drive.
Do not get me wrong, but if you want to discuss options to get around the problem / recommendations on what the best way to watch movies on TV, I suggest we take discução to the forum because here we are in a bug report / new features.
Thank you, I hope you do not misunderstand me. (sorry for my google english)

I get your point, it's nice to be able to discuss it.
Ok, to focus on the NTFS ticket, I just don't think that's a very good work around to do it like Dean did for multiman.
The thing is Dean think multiman like an OS in the OS. With software in it. He integrates emulators and showtime, and drivers like NTFS driver.
Showtime is just a software, that should focus on its main purpose: playing media.
NTFS support should be bring by a pkg that extend PS3 fs' drivers or through a hook up for multiman which have a NTFS driver embedded.

Well, just to post my opinion, I hope some day it is possible for showtime to have ntfs support. I have all the content on an external hard drive near the ps3 with two partitions, one fat32 for the ps3 and another ntfs with movies, to play them on the ps3 I use multiman and copy them to the internal hard drive with the file manager. So basically the only way you can't play easily the 1080p movies is with the internal hard drive through a ftp connection or with a pc conected to the ps3. The ntfs support would make the ps3 with showtime an excellent stand alone home theather.

I have a suggestion that would be easier to implement than NTFS and make people with external hard drives happy.
Split the large files into 2G chunks before copying them onto the external FAT formatted drive. Use a naming convention, like:
Then, in Showtime, when it sees a bunch of files like this, it should combine them into one entry, and hide the fact that they're split files from the user.
There could be a small cross-platform utility to split them, this would be easy.
