I decided to fire up the PS3 and run PS3GRID again. I run it from the HD. Anyway, I am getting "not available for your type of computer". Has something changed? Is the PS3 no longer supported?

I think this is a fresh (sunday related) issue

I'm crunching with PS3 without problems since june 2008

I have the same problem since yesterday...
One PS3 already has no work, the other two will run dry in a few hours. I already sent an email to Gianni and Ignasi yesterday, but got no reply...

Hopefully it is already solved. It has to do with the modifications explained on this post http://www.gpugrid.net/forum_thread.php?id=800
The problem was that the scheduler was considering the PS3s as "non-reliable" by those means, and they got no more WUs. However, there was a disabled option in the project configuration file to tell the scheduler to send PREFERABLY to reliable hosts but not UNIQUELY as it was happening.

Please confirm it is solved.

Thanks,
ignasi

Thanks Ignasi it's working again! :)

But one question -
Two of my PS3s are fresh installed with YDL 6.1 and haven't had any computation error since then (Well one had two "no reply"). Shouldn't they (or at least the one without any error) be a "reliable host"? Or aren't they reliable because they can't return a WU in 24 hours because some WUs take longer than 24 hours? So a PS3 actually can never be a reliable host? Just trying to understand... ;)

Yes, as the WU takes 24 hours on ps3. That is the case. A ps3 will never be considered reliable by the server. This is a limitation of the server which consider all the applications the same.
