I recently bought a WD TV Live Plus. I use a Seagate Go 320GB USB drive. The drive has 37% free space and is regularly defragmented. The HDMI and USB cables are standards compliant and of high quality (Belkin). My HDTV is 720p.
I am experiencing problems mild to moderate stuttering during playback of large, high Bit rate, 1080p .mkv files. These are high quality, expertly encoded, dxva-compliant Matroska files. They play smoothly on a Seagate Freeagent Theatre Plus+ HD Media Player.
I have experienced this issue with Firmware 1.05.04_B and 1.06.16_B.
The frame rate of the files is fine (23.976 fps). According to MediaInfo, all other numbers are within spec.
So, I;m wondering what is the maximum video Bit rate, expressed in Mbps, that the WD Live supports?
