I am looking to stream music and movies to my home cinema any idea of how I can acheive this. The ideal is to stream video from a study to lounge around 30 metres away and music to 7 rooms over 50 metres maximum.
If you are using an all-Windows7 environment, a good deal of this media sharing/streaming should happen automatically via Homegroups (assuming the netowrk infrastructure is in place, as has been mentioned.)
How much network bandwidth is required to stream HD content? I have seen advertisements indicating that Wi-Fi (11g or 11n?) is sufficient. I am trying to configure my main computer (100Mbps) to stream to a Zino (250Mbps about 30 feet away) and still seeing choppy output.
The Zino processor is only 50% utilized but I wonder if I really need a 1 gig network connection.
