I use a PS3 too, but drive it from my mac using Medialink software http://www.nullriver.com/products/medialink.
It can transcode video formats that the ps3 doesn't support on the fly which is pretty cool (but means it just breaks if you try to fastfoward/rewind)
I use ethernet-over-power adapters (200M/b) between the ps3 and the router (gigabit/802.11n)

mostly works as intended, can stream 1080p over 11n no problems. Its a little wobbly and requires occasional server restart on the mac, but the wifes figured out that part now too (go to mac, open system preferences and restart medialink )

It can see our itunes library and iphoto library, including all playlists/albums etc too, which is pretty nice , I have some large usb drives hanging off the mac where my library lives. I also have a maxtor nas drive which the ps3 can also see and play video/music from but the upnp server in it isn't so good. (no thumbnails, silly ordering)

travelling in my tricked out combie
on a, bullshit trial, bird in a gum tree,
i met a strange lawyer, he made me nervous
  he took my songs and stole my breakfast

                and i said oh! you come from a land down under?
                where you write a song and a man can plunder
                when you hear does it make you wonder?
                you mustn't hum, you mustn't play covers

got sued by a man down under
(he had), some copyrights and my song he plundered
i said do you speak(a) my language?
he just smiled and gave me a legalese sandwich,

                and i said oh! you come from a land down under?

Dying in a den in Bombay
(with a) slack jaw, and not much to say
i said to the man "are you trying to exempt me
from playing my tune in a land of plenty ? "

                and he said NO! you stole that riff down under
                the flute solo it makes me wonder
                these rights we bought to plunder
                the tunes you make in a land down under

Some amateurs assist these kinds of projects via sites such ash http://www.galaxyzoo.org/ which is a site that asks you to classify galaxies into types such as clockwise-spiral or elliptical etc. I know I like doing this as the skies around where I live are very light polluted so its nice to assist in some way I can, and there is just so much data to go through that all eyeballs are appreciated
