Stuttering via dlna, usb, or from the internal hdd? i transferred a bunch of mkv files to the hdd. will check them out tomorrow night to see how they're playing. mkv over dlna was a no go, although xvid was fine.
fwiw, i loaded the nero mediahome software on my pc and everything is recognized and running.
UPDATE: well not quite so great. i set the 590 up to transfer 5 files (mkv) overnight, and when i checked this morning, the player read ERROR and it did not copy anything over wireless to the internal hard drive. will try a reboot tonight. i thought all would be well last night as the status tab in nero mediahome showed the transfer in progress to the 590. i also have my router upstairs in a bedroom and the 590 in the basement. will be moving it upstairs closer to the router.
also, i was able to play several dvds with AVCHD files pretty flawlessly. i had inconsistent results with my other players: some of those discs would play only on one machine, some would play without ffwd, etc (among my other players: Panny 30, 60, Sony 350, Memorex 2510). but the LG played them all and ffwd/rew worked on three that i tried with no lag, etc.
ultimately if this is an all in one to replace a blu-ray and WDTV, and it decodes DTS internally to playback mkv's with DTS on my bedroom TV (something the WDTV won't do), i'll be happy even if the streaming isn't capable of dealing with large mkv files.
