ill start with my setup
Drbo 5N connected to network and (5) WDTV SMP connected to it
everything works great, i do nothing fancy i use the large grid view(think its 10 movies show per page) with thumbnail pictures only, no data movie sheets or any of that. every box is wired via Cat6 Ethernet.
so now my problem.
my movie collection is getting large. I like my folder with all the movies in it, but i would like to keep my main folder and branch off and add Genre folders or maybe Actor folders. i know shortcuts do not work which **bleep**, so i used playlist.
both .pls and .m3u and the playlist actually load and work fine. my problem is they lag, once loaded when i am browsing through the playlist as i change the page i get liek a 10 second delay.
im just wondering if there is a way to get rid of that lag.
now i do not use Media Library. i have that turned off, honestly just dont understand it and way back when i had alot of problems found it best to keep it off. i do have an External drive i will be trying to test if Media Librarry makes my playlist lost smoother. but in the mean time i thought i would ask here and see if anyone else had any experience with this subject, any trial and error advice or maybe there is just a plain simple solution.
also i am using Playlist Creator 3.6.2 using Relative Paths.
any help is appreciated, i know there have got to be a ton of people out there in the same boat. and it could be as simple as using the media library option.
