I'm new to the whole streaming thing so please have mercy. I bouht a new Buffalo WZR 300GN N router which has a built in media server. I also have a hauppage tv capture card which I am using to recrord tv in divx fornat. I 1 hour recorded show is approximatly 1.8 gig and I am copying that file to the nas on the router. The video plays back smoth on my pc but when I stream it to the xbox it is choppy. I am using my laptop as a wireless bridge to my pc and I am seeing around 20 - 30 Mbps throughput while stream to the xbox and that is dedicated 100% xbox. No other devices are accessing the network. I would think 20 -30 Mbps should be plently of throughput to not mae the video choppy. I've tried using a free video converted to reduce the video size to around 600 mb and that file plays back fine but I have to reduce the quality and would prefer to not have to spend an extra 15 minutes to convert each video after it is recorded. Am I just fooling myself and thinking that 20 -30 Mbps should be enough throughput or is something else going on?
