Symptoms:

I've highlighted the "pauses" in bold. What generally happens is the audio pauses while the video continues, the video will then pause while the audio catches up and then the stream will continue as normal.

The file is being sent directly, it's not anything to do with transcoding, as there is no transcoding going on. It's simply being served to the PS3.

Sometimes I will get error 80710092 (I believe) coming up while this is happening, sometimes it doesn't show anything at all.

Rebooting my PC often helps with how often it happens but nothing I have tried stops it.

I've checked out every FAQ I can find and tried everything to cure it, I've reformatted my PC, I've installed PMS and Java from scratch with nothing else installed. I've swapped out the PS3 with an old 60GB model, an old 20GB model and a more modern 120GB slim model. I've went through 4 different routers trying to sort it out. Nothing has made any difference. Oh, I'm connected via cat5 cable, everything is set to 1gb connection. I don't have any speed issues and can happily stream the largest of HD files.

I read somewhere that this "fault" was being looked at, but I haven't seen much else on the subject. Am I really the only person suffering this behaviour now? Any ideas what I can try to cure it?
