Seems that people think the stutter (chugging) is network related. I don't think so. If it was, then the problem would happen when the echo was set to output 720p, but from what I am seeing it only happens when the echo is set to 1080i or p. My assumption is that the raw file is served to the echo, and that the echo takes that file and ouputs it at the resolution option selected. It seems unlikely that the server pc is actually transcoding the file to the echo resolution setting.In other words, the recording is streamed to the echo as a raw file, and the echo converts to 720p or 1080(i,p) as defined in the settings, so the same number of bits are going from server to echo, regardless of echo resolution setting.
Sure seems like that would be the way it would work, but I might be wrong.
I just dont want people wasting time tinkering with network config if that is not what causes this (which I doubt since my old DMA2100s work fine off the same switch as my stuttery echo).
