Description

It happened when I was testing with the old skin (which I still prefer over the new one).
I switched to network play, and had thousands of mp3 files in front of me.
I played for a while and then changed from List (xperience) to list and then back.
Then movian reported in red that memory was low.

While scrolling down the PS3 shut down. Maybe this error is also present in 5.xx I don't know

I attached the logfile maybe you can do something with it. I'll try to replicate it in 5.xx

To add: this is Movian running under Multiman

Another crashlog. Tried again and further memory drain while scrolling the list of thousands of mp3 files and again a crash.

I've encountered the same fatal shutdown in the newer 5.0.20 version. First the system reports to be low on memory then it shuts down or quits to XMB.
It seems like quite the same error I emailed Andreas about. It occurs when browsing very large directories with either movie files or music files in it.
Like thousands of files. Movian has the option to quickly scroll through those files by pressing Dpad left (5.xx versions) or right (4.xx versions) and then down.
This works fine initially, you can fly through thousands of files and play some music in the background. After a while the system reports to be low on memory and then quits or shuts down the PS3.

If I need to test more and/or log go ahead :)

  • Subject changed from Fatal crash on playing music in Movian to System run out of memory if browsing folders with thousands of items

This is kind of a known issue without an easy fix unfortunately.

Ok too bad. I'll try to avoid heavy UPNP directory browsing then.
