Sony BDP-S570 Stuttering over Wifi

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I got a Sony BDP-S570 recently and decided to stream videos over my home network instead of building a htpc. It uses significantly less power, and costs me less, and it's easier for my parents to use...

Anyway, I have it connected over Wifi to a Netgear WDNR3300 router. That router is acting as a wireless AP only, and runs to a gigabit switch that goes to the other computers in my house.

The computer that I'm streaming off has a gigabit nic. It is my sig rig. My rig is running Mezzmo and transcoding the video so that my Blu-ray player can play it. I can transcode a 2 hour video in 30 minutes so my processor is not the problem. My hard drives are in a RAID 5 that can output to 150 MB/s sustained and 270 MB/s peak. My rig is not the slow end.

The player is connected via 5 Ghz wireless N through the Netgear router. It has an 85% signal strength (which I know really means nothing because it's not a dB rating, but hey, it likes the signal quality) so the wifi shouldn't be the slow point.

The theoretical slowest part of this system is the router's ports. They are only 10/100 ports, however at the worst possible conditions I should be able to stream 50 mbps through it.

So all streaming works perfectly, until the bit rate gets above ~18.2 mbps, then the video stutters until I pause it for a few seconds to rebuffer, or the bit rate drops.

Does anyone know how to possibly eliminate this issue, apart from wiring the player, as it's at a part of the house that I really don't want to wire to.

depending on the quality of the movies, the wifi probably cant handle it. i would try using some type of front end loader to cache the movies.

read this on AVS

"Have you tried changing the channel on the wi-fi router? 99% of wi-fi routers come by default assigned to channel 6 so you, along with everyone else, are essentially competing for the same radio bandwidth. Also, I've found that USB dongles generally don't work well, might be better to look into a wireless PCI card instead.

802.11g has an Ethernet rate of about 25Mbps, so it should be enough to handle video. A lot of times problems are related to radio noise and signal strength. Most of the time just replacing the antenna's with higher gain antenna's will solve that problem."

Um, not only have I changed the channel (I'm on 129 right now) I changed the frequency to 5 GHz. I also have no interference from neighbours as my closest one is half a mile away. I'm also running an N network so my bandwidth should be about 6 times that of a G network.

Maybe I should ask a mod to move this to the networking section as I realize now that this isn't really about the player as it's about the network.
