slow mkv playback in media center

hey I got this fella who watches shows over the network and when he watches most of them they are ok, but their a couple shows he watches
and they stutter or occasionally freeze and their the same video format from the dvd's. like dukes a hazard the audio and don't sink right.
I did a codec pack and it worked for a short time but he cn watch other shows in same format and their fine. its a Lenovo dual core laptop with win 7 and 4 gig ram and is pulling shows from media center off another pc.

Sounds like a media player/codec issue. Especially if the "codec pack" solved the problem.

To rule out a transport issue, move one of the files with issues to the laptop and playback directly from the laptop HDD.
