Hello. I have a WD TV Live and an AC Ryan streamer. Both connected to the same GB switch, and both set to stream from my computer (Win 8). Both streamers work fine, but i have noticed (when wtching my Ethernet load in Windows 8 Taskmanager (ctrl-shift-esc)), that when I stream a DVD movie (vob-files) via the AC Ryan streamer, it uses 6-8 mbit/s bandwith. Playing the same movie via the WD TV LIve it uses 17-18 mbit bandwith.
Anyone have any ideas why the bandwidth usage is so much on the WD TV LIve? (Firmware 1/2013).
Streaming the movie via a laptop with Windows 7 uses the same bandwith as the AC Ryan box (6-8 mbit approx).
Same movie, approx. same time in the movie, bandwith use:
