Internet Access Neccesary?

Postby Lequestion » Sat Dec 10, 2011 8:14 pm

Greetings.

I have been using PS3 media server for a VERY long time.
A few questions tho.

Is Internet access necessary?

Or can I simply use my pc+ps3?

Also...some of my HD movies freeze (720 and 1080) and im on a wireless G network.

Might that be the issue?

Thanks for the forum and the media server as, again, I use it all of the time and think its a great product.

No. Only if you want to web stream.

More than likely. The PS3's wifi adapter is known for being garbage. Combine that with a probably max thru put of about 25-30 Mbps, and trying to stream HD material.

Here is a general guideline on reducing stuttering. Rough minimum specs/equipment/network needed for various forms of streaming.

Here is another one. A little more in depth, with actual tips reported by other user to help diagnose/reduce stuttering.
