@iscarelli: ...no, I don't know (that unit still has a warranty sticker). What you can do is check other homebrew software that uses network (uLE etc.). If that won't work either that it's a definitely hardware problem. In order to write a new driver for that hardware I need to analyse SMAP.IRX and DEV9.IRX modules from some official titles where networking works first...

The Start-up Disc have this files? If I send this files to you can you take a look?
It's hard to find an older model to buy. And SMS network is very useful!
@iscarelli: ...this is really pretty strange. This means that PS2 producer has dropped backward compatibility with all titles (games) that support online gaming. Are you sure that the problem is software related? Could it be the case that something went wrong during modchip soldering? Could you try another unit (friends etc.)?
Not immediately, as I'm currently pretty busy at work and with firewire implementation (that will probably take ages). Note, that if you'll share these modules then you'll probably violate some license crap...

I will try to find another PS2 to test.
I test with Battlefield 2 and it works fine.
Mod Chip can cause this problems with SMS?
Do you mean part of the Xvid files?

Edit: I've extracted the 1st 10 seconds of the file so that should be OK; it's for educational purposes after all.
For me it works fine in SMS 2.6, but only plays the audio and subtitles in SMS 2.8.
SMS also seems to crash (blank screen) if you try to play a file when you've reloaded SMS after using the "Exit SMS" menu item to get back to the boot browser, but I'm pretty sure that's an unrelated issue as it happens with both versions.

Today I viewed some AVI's in a series using SMS. But then I reached one AVI which SMS simply ignored, as if the filetype had been invalid. And from SMS's point of view, that was evidently the problem. It so happened that the final character of the episode title ended in a period, which apparently threw the extension scanner out of whack. My only conclusion is that SMS uses left-to-right scanning in searching for an extension, when the only reliable method is right-to left scanning.
The first tests were made with an older SMS version (2.6 rev1), but I also repeated the tests with SMS 2.8, and I guess all versions have the same error. Fortunately it is easy to work around the bug by renaming such files, but it needs to be fixed by rewriting the extension scanner.

@ADW: I just tested your file and it works perfectly fine here on my v12 with SMS 2.8 via samba share. Don't know what could be wrong.
best regards Jones23
Just had to revert to 2.7 because an episode of Dirty Sexy Money did not display video for me with 2.8. Sound only.
Details: S01E03 The Italian Banker (XviD.avi)
File size = 367,644,476 bytes

I can provide more details if required.
Thanks for testing it Jones23.

Perhaps it's a PS2 version issue.
I forgot that there was a SMS 2.7, I'll try my file on that later to see if it works as it sounds like you're getting the same problem that I am.
