Streaming from Easystore server

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Not sure if this would be the correct forum but here goes...


I recently purchased a acer easystore server with 4 x 2tb drives to hold all my movie backups. Most are 1080p video and are wired with cat 6 cable through a gigabit switch to a Seagate Theater + media player. I have looked up the specs on the media player and its not a gigabit connection. My problem lies when I go to play these files over the network it stutters every 5 seconds. I know the media player should play these files perfectly as my brother and dad both have these same models and play their large files over a wired network via a home server just fine. Is my weak link here the server? The main reason I bought this thing was to watch the 1080p movies on my tv and so far the only thing im getting is frustrated.

Any advise or tips would be greatly appreciated.

How large are the videos?
Unless they're straight blu ray dumps the ~12 MB/sec from 100 mbit should be enough..

The files range from 2gb to 40gb with the majority falling between 6-10gb. The sad thing is that its twitching on the lower end of that spectrum (2-4gb). I've tried to unplug everything except the media player and the server from my switch to see if anything else was hogging the bandwith with no luck.

This may be a separate issue but the file transfers via cat 6 cable are slow as hell. They transfer at 13-15mb a second. Hell a simple USB can sling files faster than that.


Did I buy a bad model server?

You stated that the box doesn't have gigabit..
12.5 MB/sec is the theoretical maximum for 100 mbit.

Did you purchase the cables outright or crimp yourself?
