Getting Mediatomb to work gracefully with my PS3

I have spent some time working with MediaTomb on Fedora Core 9, trying to get it to work seamlessly with my ps3. After a lot of trial and error, I have managed to get a pretty comprehensive configuration that plays 99% of all my media. Now granted, I don’t have every form out there, but of the media that I do have, I can play most of it.

I did extensive searching on how others set up MT and found lots of conflicting and disjointed information. I will try to detail my setup here for everyone to copy and start using MT with their Playstation 3’s.

My environment is this:
Intel Core 2 Quad Core Q6600
4GB Ram
250GB Storage
Fedora Core 9
Mediatomb 0.11.0-1.fc9 (from yum)
Playstation 3 60GB

Config.xml
Without further ado here is my config file.
