Great tips. Where did you get the bitrate limitations? From my experience, they will handle up to 8000kbps.

These are all workable solutions but the DTV receivers and their Media Share function is so limited that I wouldn't invest $1 in streaming media to them unless it was the only solution available. You can't even FFW or Rew content. Get a WDTV Live or Roku instead.

Did some homework and now I see where you're coming from. What is the difference between bridge mode and not bridgemode? What does bridge mode really do? What is the best solluti… Seems like Apple took some liberties with the idea of a bridge to simplify networking multiple devices for the average person. Those guys.... sometimes......

I'm not sure if there were supposed to be graphics involved with your chart. Useful nonetheless. It would be additionally useful to see the actual connections between all devices and whether they are wireless or wired.

A bridge is used to combine to small area networks. A router without DHCP turned on could be a bridge, Access Point, Repeater or just a switch.

The more I read this, the more I am convinced that there are some network issues going on. You'll have to forgive me since I'm not familiar with the Apple ecosystem so I am not sure which device specifically does what. It sounds like you are connecting the Airport Extreme via ethernet cable to the D-Link DSL Gateway and using the Airport Extreme as you'd main router. You ...

Where it is happening across all devices, I would first point at your wireless network. Choppy is the first symptom of inadequate network bandwidth. Are you broadcasting a wireless N signal or G? Keep in mind that if you have connected a G device to an N network, it will default your entire network to G speeds which are simply not adequate for HD streaming and barely usab...

I keep Native on because I don't want to lose the progressive scaling from ESPN, Fox, etc. In my opinion, 720p is still better for high action. If you remove Native and set it to 1080i/p then your ESPN broadcasts get scaled in the box from 720p to 1080i, adding interlacing (bad). Then when the 1080i signal hits the TV it is again deinterlaced and the TV guesses what shoul...

Interesting. I stumbled upon this thread after having been gone for a month or so. I was having a similar issue with my HR24s after a major upgrade to my Mezzmo DLNA server software. I have been working with them for more than a month to figure this out, thinking it was the software upgrade. Now it appears that it may be an issue with the software/firmware upgrades to the...

Plex does basically the same thing as Tversity. If you already have your library set up through Plex for your Roku devices then you shouldn't need to do anything else from a library standpoint. You just need to make sure that Plex recognizes your DirecTV Receiver and has a profile for transcoding everything to MPG2 for them.

Skip the individual ethernet connections at each boax and just get a CCK or CCK-W, if you can (SWM or non-SWM). If you don't have a SWM, forget the CCK thing and then good luck getting a DirecTV agent that will be able to figure out how to enable MRV on your account.
