Truly amazing, and not to kiss your a$$ too much but we are very lucky to have someone like yourself looking at this stuff for the community. I have come to expect anything and everything from WD and this device, and the pros have so far outweighed the cons enormously, so even with issues like this I simply love the HUB and its capabilities. I have already forgotten what it was like to be flipping CDs/DVDs.
Since you do not see this when you are streaming to a computer can we assume that it is not an issue with the standard video codec but something in the WD application layer code that is requesting the same packets over and over again, even though it already has them in the buffer? Incredible that WD would not see this in their own beta testing, but again, nothing is shocking with these devices or WD’s R&D team and priorities.
Thanks again for the research, and you have motivated me to investigate what is going on over my own home network. Yesterday I did a bunch of read/write testing based on the threads on speed complaints to start tracking a baseline. Today, after reading your above post I have just installed Wireshark and am ready to start playing around with it, (like I need more projects in my life, especially ones like this since network analysis doesn’t get you that far in fine wine sales) :smileyvery-happy:
Thanks again for all you work
