I am running PS3 Mediaserver (1.10.5) on a Windows Home Server (WHS SP2) with an e7200 CPU, 2GB RAM and 1Gb LAN
I have set quailty to 'highest quality' although my screen is only 720p
When I stream .m2ts files I get stuttering whenever the bandwidth exceeds 80Mb/sec. I have observed speeds > 300Mb/sec so don't think this is a network limitation.
My CPU seems to be 'peaking' at 70% which I think is the problem. I have tried a number of encoder options without no notieable change. If I pause the movie for 20 seconds and then hit play it runs for about 15 seconds then starts stuttering again.
I also tried running PS3 Mediaserver from my Vista PC which is a Q6600. The streaming was slightly better although I noticed stuttering above 100Mb/sec.
Please could you advise me on the optimised quality settings. Alternatively should I upgrade to a faster CPU eg. e8600.
Thanks for a wonderful program.
