the speed you are seeing is real and nothing to worry about unless your network cant support a transfer so high, you can adjust a max bitrate speed and quality settings in ps3 media server config if you have issues if you dont nothing to worry about its working as intended.
Ok, I have no problems with the connection, used to come to 87Mb / s and collapsed. Change transcoding parameters quiality and now I can get to have peaks and falls 182 streaming.
It was more of a technical curiosity, since I work well.
But, if I'm using my server PC, and it plays MKV fine, that would have to transcoded too?

Ah thanks that was a question that had also, not Megabytes are megabits.
