I recently built a nice htpc but have noticed that during playback of blu-ray content, either 2D or 3D, there is what I would describe as a buffering issue where the movie gets real choppy and the hard drives are running like mad. This happens if I'm watching blu-ray from disc or from hard drive.

I don't know if it's a paging issue or what, but my specs are:
  • 64 bit Win7
  • Windows Media Center, SageTV
  • GeForce GT240 video card
  • nVidia beta 3d drivers
  • 4 x 2GB DDR3 1333 OCZ Gold memory
  • AMD Phenom II 3.4GHz Black Edition CPU
  • MSI 890GXM-G65 Motherboard
  • 6 x WD20EVDS 2TB SATA drives
  • Auzentech Hometheater X-Fi HD sound card

I have it set up such that my applications sit on one drive, and my content on other drives. I should point out that I have enabled hardware acceleration and the graphics device is given exclusive control.

I had considered putting up the resource manager while watching content to see what's going on but in the interim was wondering if this community may have some insight.

Many thanks.
