Media Sharing - Network Device names list

Hi there.  Just a question regarding the media sharing functionality on z10.


In the media sharing settings, selecting devices button will display a list of devcies on the current network.  Does the z10 retreive those names directly from the device itself or is that retreived from the network router?


I have a Playstation 3 in which I am connecting to - however in the device list on my z10 it displays 'Unknown Device' with IP an address.  Not very user friendly as I have many other devices on my network which I might connect to.


I've tried changing the PS3 system name with no luck (I think this is specifically a PS3 issue).  However, next i'll try to name the PS3 on the router if that is where the z10 gets its list details from.
