Every time I run PMS since the last update the system asks me to reinstall JRE, although it is already installed. I have searched on the forums, downloaded another PMS.exe from some other similar thread, and I am using that now, but this still happens. Any suggestions?
1080p bitrates can get that high (say a VC-1 version of the Planet Earth "flock of cranes" scene), so Gigabit probably is your best bet. However, bitrates getting that high (when the PS3 is reporting them) can also be a sign that your PC isn't able to keep up with the transcode...snowsurfer wrote:On the other hand, when streaming a 1080p, DTS encoded *.mkv, I sometimes have some glitches in the sound. Looking at the display option on the XMB I see that this happens when the bitrate jumps from the usual 60ish Mbit max for video, to a strange sounding 200-300Mbit. The file itself is okay since it is not glitched when watching it in GOM Player. I am on 100Mbit Ethernet right now, would a move up to Gigabit fix this? This would be a matter of slotting in another Gigabit switch downstairs, I already have one upstairs, so that wouldn't even be too expensive. Also, is it normal that the maximum throughput for my network in PMS is usually up as 75-78 Mbit, but after these glitches happen, PMS reports it at 140-150Mbit - which is impossible.
Depends on the file. A H.264/DTS .mkv that just needs an audio remux (using TSmuxer) will work just fine. A full video transcode (using MEncoder) could potentially be too much for your system, like in the example I listed in my first response. The way to tell will be to look at your CPU usage and the PMS transcode buffer (on the Status tab of the PMS GUI) when the file is stuttering.snowsurfer wrote:As for the other issue, while transcoding the proc usage doesn't go all the way up - I'm on a Q6600 at 3.2 GHz, 4Gb ddr1066 with tight timings, Vista Ult 64bit on a velociraptor and the files on a WD Black Edition, all fresh, kept up to date, clean....I know it's not bleeding edge any more but it should be able to rt transcode this and much more, right? :S
