I'm fairly confident that there are no programs out right now that would allow me to sync/stream my itunes library from my mac to my ps3(like connect360), but I was just wondering if anybody was aware of any programs in development that can do this? yes, I know it might be possible by installing linux, but I am more interested in listening to my itunes music on my mac while playing games on my ps3.

Yes. The PS3 uses UPnP for media sharing. Fortunately, El Gato has a UPnP Server for mac (fifty bucks, sorry its not free). It probably works pretty well. I just got a PS3 yesterday, so I can't tell you how well it works, but theres a 30 day trial, so feel free to check it out. Its called EyeConnect:

Hey moo, I was wondering if you ever got your ps3 to sync with eyeconnect. I tried it out and it works (as far as both devices seeing each other) but I can't get any of my music, pictures, or videos to play on PS3. It keeps saying there is a "connection error" or something. Please let me know. Thanks.

There is no easy way on a mac to do this that is free. Unfortunately, the best way to set up media streaming to the PS3 is through a pc only software called Tversity. It trancodes all your videos to the PS3 on the fly. (You do need a fairly powerful pc to do the trancoding though). Best of al, Tversity is free and is a snap to setup.

Well, I guess I can get boot camp and xp installed on my mac and try it out. Thanks for your tip.
