Blu ray rips across the network

I have a WD Live Plus and overall I’ve been rather happy with it. I do occasionally have some issues with stuttering on large Blu-Ray rips with a .mkv file. Sometimes this is remedied by turning the WD off and then back on but not always. Is this something I will just have to live with or is there anything I can do about it. I am playing these rips through a wired network connected from my computer to the WD Live Plus. The cables are cat6. I do not have these issues if I play from a local drive connected to the WD and that to date has been my workaround. I’ve read some other posts with issues similar to mine but I was wondering if there were any more current information about this.
