BTW, you already have this topic, no need to start a new one. As such, that new topic has been merged into this one.
It was nothing to do with the WAN bandwidth your ISP provides (T1 falls into that category). Setting up a gigabit LAN on your home network simply involves having network devices that support a 1000Base-T connection (PS3 does, your PC may just have a 100Base-T NIC) wired together (through a switch or router usually) with Cat5e or Cat6 ethernet cables.ujin wrote:If you don't mind my asking, what is a gigabit LAN, is it like t1 internet land line? Sorry, noob here!
The CPU comment is directed towards your trying to use a wireless connection. When you used the wired connection, PMS was able to reduce the CPU load by increasing the bandwidth required to stream the file after it was transcoded. The more bandwidth you make available (this is why I suggested gigabit), the less stress PMS has to put on the CPU.ujin wrote:So you reckon it's my cpu that can't handle the bigger 1080p file?
How come it can handle the 7gb 1080p file(smaller size due to it being a 45 documentary) while it can't handle the 14gb size(bigger due to it's a 2 hr movie)?
Simple streaming of formats PS3 natively supports: MP3/JPG/PNG/GIF/TIFF, all kind of videos (AVI, MP4, TS, M2TS, MPEG)
