HI, can we get a list of system specs from all of you? It would be nice to see what setup works. Here's mine.
2 Xeon 5410 at 2.33ghz (that's 8 cores
1 TB sata II drive dedicated storage
1 gigabits network connection to switch, then 1 gigabits connection to PS3
windows server 2008 x64
java 6 update 13
Core AVC 1.9
Avisynth 2.58 with VSfilter.dll loaded
ffdshow rev 2734 XXL
Haali media splitter 188.8.131.52
Comment: Using Avisynth/Mencoder engine. 720p, 1080p mkv's run smooth with settings MAXED out on PMS. 600mb buffer stays full, no cap on bandwidth.
