Using Media Server 1.10.51
PC is an Intel Quad Core 9550 with 6Gb RAM running vista 64
Network Adaptor is Intel Gigabit
Problem Description -
I have 2 PS3's one of which stands next to my PC and is connected to the network via cat5 cable directly into my router. All movies stream perfectly well to it.
(BTW, media server is not transcoding the movies as they are all in mp4 ps3 compatible format - all its doing is streaming them)
My 2nd PS3 is in the living room and is networked via Comtrend 200Mbps Powerline Adaptors.
Its the 2nd PS3 giving the problems - 1080p movies stutter *terribly badly*.
You can see from the setup, that the same movie stream perfectly to the PS3 directly connected to the network but stutter over the Powerline adaptors, hence the problem is the powerline adaptors.
I need some advice on how to fix the problem.
When movies are stuttering, my powerline adaptors 'green' light changes to orange or sometimes red indicating a problem. My network connection on task manager shows about 10% avergae throughput when I'm streaming a movie. 720p movies are generally ok.
These adaptors are advertised as coping with up to 200Mbps and HD movies, so why can't mine cope? I swear the problem is worse now than it ever was before - 1080p movies stutter every few seconds all the way through.
Any advice? (the powerline adaptors are plugged straight into the wall and not via extension or surge protected sockets).
