I also would like to share my Experience with forum-mates, not sure if this is right place in forum, but please advice or move it.
I'm using latest BETA build to date: 1.20.409
Right now, I have laptop Acer Extensa 5620:
Core 2 Duo, T5450, Bus Speed: 667, 2 MB Cache (http://processorfinder.intel.com/detail
2GB RAM 800Mhz
Radeon 2400 HD w/256MB Dedicated
Sony BRAVIA 46W5500
Wireless router from Trendnet, 100mbps wired and 54 Mbps via Wireless G.
Tried three ways:
a) Laptop connected to router by Wireless, TV connected router via Cable
b) Laptop connected to router by Cable, TV connected router via Cable
c) Laptop connected to TV directly by Cable
Did see a little performance improvement while using way B and C just a little, but didn't help any way .
File formats tried: mkv (Matroska, h.264), avi (mpeg4, mpeg2), wmv.
Approaches that I've tried:
DVDRip, TVRip, DVD 5/9, avi: Runs smoothly All ways
720p: Works smooth when works, but most of the time TV Says "Can't play video", I think because of some buffer
1080p Mostly does not get played at all, but when works Audio stutters a lot, video stutters like it is playing 15-20 fps, watchable if very needed, but not enjoying at all.
Somehow .mov files don't work for me at all, maybe you could help me to set it up to work?
