Well, 100 Mbps = 1.25E7 Bps = .698 GBpm, so, for a 10 GB file, you're looking at ~14 minutes, assuming of course you have a full, constant 100mbps (shouldn't be too much lower than this though), and that nothing else on your system is limiting (like your CPU transcoding the MKV)

If an MKV file is muxed / copied onto the PS3 hard drive in this way, will the movie movie play from the hard drive in 24 fps (assuming TV is compatible)?

iirc 24FPS will only work with MKV's converted to AVCHD and played back from USB with folder structure replicating a BD-Rom.

Aww... Dang, I went to http://www.speedtest.net/ and my download is 2.81mb/s. Mathematically speaking, it would take 50*15 mins? Half a day to copy over a file?!

Thanks - I was hoping it might be otherwise but what you say makes sense.

...That is your internet (WAN) download speed, which has nothing to do with your available intranet (LAN) bandwidth. Unless you're using a super old computer, router, and ethernet cable, you're going to have atleast a 100Base-T (100mbps) connection (the 100Base-T standard was approved in the mid 90's ;))

And if your Comp is less than a couple of years old it's likely it will have 1Gb ethernet. If so you can just plug a standard Cat5e ethernet cable between the 2 and copy it across at 1gb speed. ;)

Cat5e maxes out at 350mbps. You need Cat6 to get the full gigabit bandwidth.
If interested, a nice little overview of the different cables can be found here: http://www.connectworld.net/syscon/support.htm

Not exactly correct.
1000BASE-T works even with cat5 (it was designed for cat5 but pushes the cable to it's limits), and benefits from the higher specs of cat5e.
1000BASE-TX needs cat6.

The main difference between cat5e and cat6 for Gb speeds is usable distance.
Actually cat6 cabling has more available bandwidth than the one used for 1Gb speeds in normal conditions.

cat6 and cat6a is more usefull for Gb over 1000BASE-TX, larger distances, or 10Gb over copper.
But of course, there's nothing wrong in using cat6 for gigabit.

Huh... Fair enough.
Learn something new everyday I guess ;)
