Hi and welcome to the forums,

You have misunderstood what Plex Media Server is. It is not (at least for the moment) not designed to work with anything else than Plex. PS3 might see the instance but I can not play anything from it.
PMS serves online content to Plex, and if Im not totally mistaken also plays a key role in the bonjour solution where other Plex instances on your network can see other Plex instances sources.

Just get ps3mediaserver and point it to the same dirs as your plex media.
