What is your opinion on where my slow-down is in my system? - thanks
I am working on getting 1080 streaming in the home. I have been happy streaming my wired Xbox 360 in 720 but since I bought a GoPro, I am itching to stream the 1080. What should I upgrade 1st? Where am I getting my major lag issues from?
1) I have a Panasonic 50 - plasma that maxes out at 720. I know the TV will only play in 720...I assume there is lag created when a 1080 vid is selected.
2) PC...I have an older PC (wired of course) in which local media is stored external drives (USB 2) - Do you think the USB 2 is slowing everything down? This is just a standard run of the mill pc and not a media server. Should I build a media server 1st?
3) I just bought a Roku 3 as a cheap fix for this...It plays the 1080 but buffers quite a bit with the output to 720. I also moved a couple of files to the internal HD to eliminate the USB from the questions. Again, the 1080 files play as 720 but buffer quite a bit.
I was looking at LG and Samsung 'Smart' TV's today....would that be the place to start? (Running Plex?) What is my best plan of attack here? What would you guys do? Also looking to upgrade my AVR to an HDMI stitching model to help streamline everything (probably Denon x3000 for zone 2 capabilities). Thank you VERY much!
