DLink NAS DNS-320 with 2 @ 2 TB drives in RAID0
Gigabit unmanaged switch
WDTV LIve Streaming (current firmware) (wired)
MKV files encoded with Handbrake (h.264) running from a network share on teh DNS-320
Essentially streaming my MKV files is problematic at best. Right now I have had limited success in getting any of those files to stream (the WDTV essentially “locks up” while trying to play these files and takes forever to queue them up. Netflix and everything else seem to stream just fine and I can stream my MKV files to other devices without any problem whatsoever.
My bottleneck seems to be network related on teh WDTV live as speed tests show the DNS-320 is operating within limits.
I have the option to set up the DNS-320 as a uPNP Media Server, would I be better served running it that way instead of from the shares (which are technically samba shares)
Also … I have been contemplating getting a WDTV Hub … would that handle networking better than the WDTv Live? I have another room the WDTV live can go in to as that room just needs to stream netflix and such.
Thanks in advance
