I am able to stream 1080/60p at an average of 28Mbs wirelessly (from my laptop, the blu ray is wired) with absolutely no problems via either DLNA or DMR.
I recently bought the new Panasonic BDT110-at first a total flop streaming. But then I upgraded to windows 7-worked great. Then I reinstalled windows 7-did not work.
I realzied that Windows Mesh- the new network windows 7 program- is a total disaster.
With Windows Mesh my network was only working at 25-38% capacity tops, when my network has the capability of functioning at 54Mbps, therefore topping out at about 20-21 Mbs. Fast enough for my 1080/60i clips, but NOT my 1080/60p
After I uninstalled Mesh, I am now able to stream via either method again and the network shows it is operating at anywhere from 45-60% usually around 54-55%-thus demonstrating a successful rate of an average approx 28Mbs, with variation based on the particular scene in question, as is the case with my native footage.
Now, this is home video taken on my Panasonic SD600-but as my cap is 54Mbps, there should be absolutly no problem with a 1080p at 40-50 Mbs, I just do not have any to test personally
Honestly, these blu ray players are amazing for streaming. They can stream via network drives, DLNA, or act as Digital Media Renderers (by far the best method, basically acting as a wireless HDMI cable, but even better). They have excellent user interface for netflix, etc. Plus they can actually play blu ray discs, upconvert your SD movies specatularly, play AVCHD discs, SD cards, USB ports for external hard drives, etc, etc...so...I think hey are awesome.
