I'm still missing something I guess because I don't understand why the HDD on the PS3 would have any effect on streaming videos from another device to the PS3.
The drive on my pc that is streaming to my PS3 is a 2 TB NTFS drive. My understanding is that the PS3 will not read any drive directly that is not FAT32. So if I had an external drive that was formatted NTFS and want to play files from it on my PS3, I would have to hook it up to a PC and then stream the content over, as opposed to just directly connecting said drive to the PS3 via USB.
