My first post (long time lurker...)
First of all: Great software! PMS made my PS3 useful.
I'm running v1.10.51 on a i7 920 (not OC'ed ...yet) computer with 12 Gb RAM, 64-bits Windows 7 RC, 100 MBit cabled network all the way from PC -> Router -> PS3.
I've understood from other threads that an i7 920 should be more than enough for transcoding 1080p without stuttering. But it isn't, in my case. I've concluded that 100 Mbit cabled network isn't enough for stutter-less (is that even a word?) playback of 1080p material with the following quality setting: keyint=1:vqscale=1:vqmin=2 /* Best Quality */
. (If I reduce it to keyint=3:vqscale=2:vqmin=3 /* Good quality */
everything is fine.)
I am going to upgrade the cables to 1 Gbit/Cat 5e in a few days, but I just started wondering: Is anyone else with a similar computer and network setup experiencing the same, or should 100 Mbit cabled network be sufficient with the best quality setting as long as the CPU can handle it?
I'm using Mencoder only (need subs), HT-version, and I've set a transcode buffer of 600 Mb, 4 cores, 6 channels 5.1 audio and DTS/FLAC -> LPCM enabled. Everything works, except for the mentioned stuttering of 1080p material which stutters only at the best quality setting.
Thanks for your thoughts on this.
