Weird start/stop

Postby infiniter » Tue Apr 10, 2012 10:49 pm

Searched for this kinda bug, but did not find like this, so I'll post a new topic.

I am playing a game on my PC (hidden object), while PMS is serving files to my PS3, which I'm watching while playing. So PMS works in the background. At first I thought it was about priority, but it wasn't.
Problem: the files automatically stop and start again from time to time.

But there is no real stop/start coming from the PS3. Sort of phantom commands are these or whatever causes the events. Quite annoying. Mostyly only 2 seconds long.

My specs:
- Win 7 x64 pro on AMD 4core with 8GB
- Latest stable release of PMS with MEncoder to PS3
- LAN, 100Mbit

I am getting this as well.

Update: For me this only happens when the files do not require transcoding. If i force transcoding on avi files i no longer get the stop/start events, or at least they are greatly reduced

I am seeing this as well, possibly hundreds of start/stops per session. Thought it was network issues until i checked the log. Is there an open issue regarding this?
