Would buying a PS3 solve my problems?

Postby Alex » Sun Aug 23, 2009 10:58 am

Hi All,

I am strungling to get streaming to work. I currently use PS3 Media Server with my Pioneer PDP-LX5090H TV's build in home media gallery. However everything goes wel with 720p material. When I try to play 1080p stuff I get stuttering image. The best results are when using FFMpeg/Avisyntch transcoding option. I use a wired network Gigabit (however tv is 100Mbit).

My question is would buying a PS3 solve my issues? So basically what I want to know is; If you have a Gigabit LAN and stream using a PS3 in 1080p is that working for you? What is and what is not?

Or should I go for a dedicated streamer like the popcorn hour.

Thanks in advance,

Alex

It may be your tv just can't handle the signal. Even if you're network is Gigabit, if you're TV can only accept 10/100 MBps, it won't make a difference, the network speed is limited to the slowest connection. It seems that most 10/100 MBs networks and connections are limited to 720p...mine included...

I know this be a bit off before you commit to a £250 buy, would it not be best to try borrow a PS3 for a bit and see if this resolves your issue.

Yes I will borrow one in a short while from a friend.

But I was curious if some of you had any experience with it.
