I've been playing around for awhile now trying to get the mix right. I have a windows 7 PC 1.8gz dual core with 1gb of RAM running ps3 media server.
I've got alot of 720p and 1080p content that I've tried to stream to the PS3. Some works fine others stuttered stop/start etc. At first I blammed the poor PC specs so starting using my macbook pro.. same issues but the macbook wasnt even stressed. So then I thought network and limited the bandwidth as it says in the help file... still no love. I've tried wireless and cabled connections.
I checked the PC performance while streaming at the memory was almost maxed but the CPU was only about 20%. So I'm wondering if its just the codec of the content I have?
Some files I can stream via DLNA that run fine such as AC3 etc etc but I have alot of MKV. I have also converted some content using mtsmuxer but that takes alot of mucking around..
Need some fresh ideas lads. I sometimes watch stuff straight of the TV via the vga cable but I only get stereo sound and its a waste when I have a PS3 with HDMI and optical sound to my amp.
This was a new years resolution to get this sorted :). I love the coverflow that windows media center provides but no hdmi.... and I'm cheap I dont want to pour money into a new PC.
