HFS Info:

HFS aka HFS HTTP File Server will give you the ability to copy files to your PS3 and stream videos directly to your ps3 it also can be used for much more than this but this is what i use it for also with the modification. i have made you will be able to upload videos you have on your PS3 to your PC.

i have set everything up for you it should be a simple matter of loading. HFS up and adding your files to it you will also need to create a Upload folder on your pc and drag it over onto HFS and right click the folder and set it up as a upload directory so you can upload pictures and with my mod videos from your PS3 to your PC.

i've set the HFS website up as localhost if this doesnt work change localhost to your pc's ip address, for example change localhost to and everything should work perfectly to make it easier for you to change the ip address ive set it up so it reads the website address from the root of your ps3's hdd so please put the hfs.xml in the root of your ps3's hdd so basically it should be put in /dev_hdd0/ this will allow you to easily remember were it is if you need to change the ip address.

Here are the files:

The PS3Ultimate TV Video Bypass contains the which you install using multiman this will allow you to upload your videos from your PS3 to your PC.

v1.09 Changelog:

With 1.09 I've updated most of the app from the themes to the movie links and movies. I've also added a links section to tidy the main section up. Ive also added new content including ps3 xil for those who want to use it to add custom channels and tidy up the ps3's main XMB or if your CFW has removed them, then they should be available again. I've also changed the update to a direct link but most of my time and effort has been focused on the movies section.

I decided to release this update a little sooner than I was going to, so remember I'm working on this everyday, so keep checking for updates but remember it can be a slow process and I'm working alone. So please be patient and if you have just installed this update remember to also download and install a theme so everything is up to date.

Sorry if I making a dummy question. Do I replace the original files from /dev_flash/vsh/resource/explore/xmb/category_tv.xml or just add the file category_tv.xml in /dev_hdd0/vsh/resource/explore/xmb/

try to replace from /dev_flash the system won't let me even erase the existing one.

Adding in /dev_hdd0 still see TV category empty.

Can some one point me to the right direction?

Yea, I have ABC IView, Plus7 and SBS On Demand and that VidZone on my OFW PS3.

On the CFW355 I have ABC, Plus7 and PlayTV. I also moved Showtime there but I would like SBS on demand but cant work out how to get it there.

I now have Crackle. Which reminds me its time to crackle. LOL

Oh, I could only get Crackle working as the others said they can't be played to international users. And the others were in foreign languages so I couldn't understand what was going on. Probably telling me I cant play then as I'm an international user. There is Plus7 but I already have that.

I edited the files and now I only have crackle as that's the only channel I wanted anyway.

Is there a way to add the official channels? On OFW 4.21 there are more channels than 3.55 has and I can't seem to get the new ones installed to CFW.

I remember a similar app named PS3 Channels Creator. You would have to make your own XML file and it would appear in the "TV" tab in the XMB. You would have to enter the website though and it would just take you there on the PS3. Good to see RazorX still contributing to the scene.
