There’s definitely a bug that causes certain video formats to consume way too much bandwidth.
I’m just trying to figure out why you get STUTTERING on DVD Video_TS and most others don’t… Presumably we’re all having the same bug that makes it consume more bandwidth than it should, but that’s not been verified… And if that IS the case, then the only thing that makes sense is that either the HUB or the NETWORK is unable to cope with that errant bandwidth demand.
I suppose it’s entirely possible that your Hub can’t cope with the 30-40 megabit per second demanded by the WD. Is IT wired or wireless? Have you tried streaming them from a higher-end server like your PC?
It makes sense that none of the other devices or formats have problems, because they are (again, presumably) using only 1/4 of the bandwidth the WD bug causes. It also makes sense that streaming them via MEDIA SERVER, or playing the individual VOB without menus causes no issue, because the bandwidth required is again only 1/4 what you’re consuming when you play them in DVD-mode.
My SMP takes about 40 seconds or so to boot up from COLD. Yes, there are two different Splash screens… The WD Logo with a cloudy scene, then my TV goes blank for a few seconds, then the WD Logo + “LOADING…” and a different cloud scene… then the menu.
It only takes about 3-5 seconds to boot up from Standby.
