After many many hours of tinkering and trying different things I finally figured out how to stream high def 1080p mkv’s and m2ts’ without a hickup! and without having to edit/encode or change any of the bitrate.
this may already be posted on here some where but i wanted to post to help others out as i seeked help.
I have an WD HD TV Live, I had a buffalo mini n doggle. I have a Netgear wireless N router and a Linksys wrt54gv2 5.0. Here is what i did. The dongle didn’t do shiot for me. Everything i threw at it stuttered with live wd hd. Everyone keep saying to hard wire it with a lan line to stop the stuttering. So i turned my linksys into a wireless bridge. I used DD-WRT ( http://www.wi-fiplanet.com/tutorials/article.php/3639271/DD-WRT-Tutorial-3-Building-a-Wireless-Bridge.htm)
and flashed my linksys. After finally completing the flash and getting it up and running i put the linksys behind my tv and connect a lan line in one of the 4 ports on the router and connected other end to my WD HD. This instantly stopped all stuttering. If you choose to do this follow the instructions very carefully so you don’t brick your router. but basically it turns your router into a wireless hub (No lan line connecting routers). They both work together off of the same network.
My first test was Batman the dark knight which was almost a 12 gig m2ts file. it’s average bitrate is 10,000kbps with spikes of upto 35,000kbps. I made it halfway through the movie without a single hickup or stutter before i moved on to testing other movies. As of yet I have tested about 18 1080p and 720p m2ts and mkv’s without any issue.
Let me know if this works for you!
