WD TV Live HD Media player (firmware 1.01.24)
Linksys WRT54GL (Firmware 4.30.12)
- Synology DS210J (DSM 2.2-0965; Build Date: 2010/01/25)
Laptop with Vista SP2 (Wireless)
PC with Windows XP SP3
Only the laptop is wireless connected.
The Synology is configured with 2x 1.5Tb harddisks (RAID1). Mediaserver (DLNA) is activated. All video’s are placed in the \video share. (and automatically available through Mediaserver). The \video share has 3 configured users, all with password.
If I access a movie via the network share, I can play the movie. (Although DVD menu’s are missing: WD Fix this!!!)
If I access the same movie via Media server, I cannot play the movie. Message: Media type isn’t supported, check the manual.
If I play the movie via the network share, every 10 minutes (average) the movie has some problems. Dissorted images, interupted sound etc. Sometimes the movie seems to play about 2x faster for about 3 seconds. Sometimes a short part of a scene is skipped (about 1/2 a second).
This problem occurs every movie.
Most of the movies is in the VIDEO_TS/VOB format.
If I connect via USB, these problems also occur, but less frequent.
How can I improve the performance / quality problems?
What is the best (in theory) method of watching a movie: Media server or network share?
What is the best method of filetype. VOB, ISO, or other formats. (I mean, what format is played best by WD, without interuptions etc.)
