I'm running the dlink moca's, had them up and running since Oct speeds are good, windows transfer speeds are 11-12 MB/s, Qcheck returns throughput around 60Mbps. But I'm not having any luck streaming BD's. I've replaced all the splitters with the 2Ghz , there were only two splitters in my house, not amps, my house is wired with RG-59 and the cable is roughly 14 years old, I'm guessing I have roughly 150 feet of cable between the adapters, I've purchased an actiontec POE filter as per the information here, http://hfc.jdsu.com/blog/jdsu
, still no luck. I was doing a file transfer and watching my network activity, and it was peaking at 100% utilization, so thats a good sign close to 100mb's of utilization, when streaming BD's, is network utilization is around 30Mbps, and with some peaks and valleys, and this is good, there's plenty of pipe left, but why can't I stream a bd with XBMC or boxee buffering, I've tried streaming the m2ts file using media player, and its almost like there is not buffer at all, playing straight from the source.
I'm streaming from a media smart whs but I've also tried to stream from a vista PC. no other connections are live on the moca adapters durning the testing.
I even connected two PC's directly, one vista, the other windows 7 with nothing but the moca's, a crossover cable on one end, 1m RG6, and a cat 5 e cable, made a direct connection, and could not stream without buffering
I was thinking about trying the netgears out, there's plenty of pipe for a bd, and I can only assume that there is something up with the Dlink's firmware or something specific to my moca units that maybe causing the issue. Oh, and I have comcast not satelite

So, can some one with a similar config, confirm that they can stream a BD (full BD, unmolested) from a whs using moca to an HTPC running XMBC Dharma or boxee, or what ever your pleasure, and I'll continue my quest with the Netgears.
