Just got a TV Live Plus mainly so I can watch HD movies off a computer in my basement on a TV on the 1st floor of my house. Got it hooked up to my TV via HDMI, had a couple firmware updates when I started it up so I did those, then I started testing files and stuff. I had read that it takes a couple days to tinker with settings and whatnot to get it working just right but to be honest there aren’t really all that many settings on the device to tinker with.
So, I have it running with a wireless adapter (ASUS USB-N13) off a wireless router provided by my ISP (AT&T U-Verse). The computer I have it pulling files from is connected to a D-Link switch which is plugged into the router. I can get into all of the files fine, it plays smaller, non-HD .avi files just fine, plays the music off the computer just fine, etc., etc. Even when I start up an HD movie (x264 1080p .mkv files - average around 10GB a pop) it looks beautiful and plays perfectly. After about 60-90 seconds, every single time, the video starts stuttering and the audio cuts out completely.
Is this strictly a networking issue where the files are just too large to be streamed reliably over the wireless network or is it something else? I was pretty set on trying hardwiring after I read a bit of the forums here but I activated my Netflix account on the device as I was reading on here then went and sat down to try some Netflix stuff. I had one movie where I guess Netflix determined my connection was too slow (goes back to maybe the wireless connection?) and played the non-HD version but I tried an episode of Lost in HD from Netflix and it played in HD and played perfectly.
Any help is appreciated, I don’t have too much of an issue with hardwiring but I don’t want to do it if I definitely don’t have to if someone else here has run into similar problems and knows the fix. Thanks again for any help.
