stability and responsiveness of serviio

Hi,

Contrary to everyone else I seem to find the Samsung software a lot more responsive on my ps63c7000 especially when skipping forward/back. So I think there must be something wrong with my config.

Is there anything I can do to tweak this performance? I'm finding that the film drops out when I fast forward/rewing too much on serviio and very often it refuses to play a file on the 1st & 2nd attempts saying the file is unsupported and then it plays on subsequent attempts. The desktop running the software is a nettop running xp home with just an atom processor but the cpu load is always very low.

(additional info: the same thing happens when I use my bluray player too and everything is connected locally via a 100mb/1gbit switch.)

Any help very much appreciated.

Wired or wireless?

Have tried wireless in the past but now all wired on a gigabit switch and still the same. I've performed a network test using a fluke device and all is apparently good.

Re: stability and responsiveness of serviio

have you ever tried comparing the transfer rates between the nettop and a full computer. I have a WD My Book World Edition that the actual network interface slows transfers down. The network interface was the weakest link. Do a google search and you should be able to find some freeware that will test the transfer rate. or you could run a download test from http://www.dslreports.com using the same download test location and compare the rates.

Re: stability and responsiveness of serviio

I've already run an iperf test on the net top interface to my nas and am getting pretty good transfer speeds of 500mbits+ between the devices. I've also recently installed the software on another desktop with a lot more grunt but the situation is only magically better. Am I the only person getting better performance from the original samsung software here?
