Yea I know all about how to stream over the internet to another PC. The whole point is to be able to stream over the internet to a TV without a computer for someone not very tech savvy.

Is there some other device other than the WD Live (that's roughly the same price) that would accomplish what I'm trying to do?

I read that you can use a MyPlex account to stream your videos to a Roku device outside your network. Anyone have experience with this?

Me. This is how I stream to my dads Roku. I was thinking I had to forward ports though, but I may be wrong.

Yea that's no big deal though. Do you have any feedback from your dad as to the quality of the streaming?

Hey Tycoon, did you have to mess with your Plex Media Server settings at all to get the streaming to work right to the Roku you set up for your dad? I seem to be having issues where movies constantly have to buffer every few minutes and I've tried different settings under "Remote Quality" but it seems to do it on almost any setting.

If you have got it working with no buffering issues, can you tell me what the system specs are of the server you're running Plex Media Server on? I'm using a Q6600 with 4GB or RAM. The movies I've tried streaming are just AVI files but they are big (over 1.5GB) and I do see my CPU usage spiking up to max at times during streaming but it's not constant. However I don't have any issues with buffering over LAN so that makes me think it's not the CPU limiting me. I'm confused at this point haha.

I guess my question is, if the CPU was not able to handle the transcoding wouldn't that be the case regardless of if it's over LAN or WAN?

EDIT: Scratch that, it does the same thing for both local or WAN streaming. I tested both my WAN and LAN Roku's with the same few movie files (the ones originally giving me trouble over WAN) and they do the same thing in both scenarios. First off it takes a good 30-60 seconds to load the video and then every few minutes it pauses with the "Loading, please wait" status bar. Now I at least know it's not a bandwidth issue so it must be either my server not handling the transcoding of certain files well or a setting in Plex.

EDIT #2: It appears to be an issue with just a few out of my 300+ movie files, and of course they are two of the ones I want to watch now haha. So frustrating.
