There have been several people with video stuttering issues but I cannot find an answer in those posts to my problem.
I used to have content streamed from my Mac’s external drive to my WD via a wireless N USB. Content did not stutter. I recently installed CAT6 throughout the house, running to a patch panel, connected to a switch. Now nothing plays correctly, all the files stutter no matter what size or format (Divx, MKV, MPEG etc.)
In theory, a wired connection should be doing a much better job than streaming wirelessly…this is very frustrating.
The DIVX files it plays smooth for 2 mins until the stuttering becomes brutal is 1.4GB for 40 mins.
I cannot find a file that can play on this unit smoothly for me.
All my other machines/devices on the network are fine and running full steam.
Has anyone had trouble ilke this with wired connections? I am running the latest firmware.
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: I know the WD only has 10/100 ethernet capability
