Slow streaming

I have my replay connect to my home network via Ethernet
but it seems unable to stream fast enough.
The only way it plays continuously on my PC is if I set videolan
to run at 25% speed. This of course eliminates the audio.
Any hints or tips to increase throughput? I have a
DLink DI 714P+ wireless router and both the PC and
RePlay are connected via Ethernet. Right now I am thinking
about making up a new Cable (it's a 60 foot run) to see if
that helps.
Regards,
JR

Wireless is often too slow for streaming. There seem to be other
factors that I don't know about. If you want to watch the show on a
PC, can you copy it to the PC and play it there?

I would definitely try that. I've had problems bad cables before, even
cables that ostensibly tested okay with a network tester. The
router-to-replay connection may be falling back to 10 mbit, if it's a
bad cable.

Yes. I've had bad cables too. Some would work, but require a lot of
retries (slowing the connection down).

Yes, I have no problem copying shows to the PC and watching them
later. I do this with movies and video tapes I want to record to DVD.
I have read here that many ppl are streaming from the replay to a PC
and watching the show as it streams and wanted to try it.
I do have an Ethernet cable tester and the cable tests good.
I guess b4 I do much more I'll make up a new cable and see what happens.

Most network switches have a "collision" indicator. Watch it while
streaming.

What transfer speed do you get between computers over that cable? It
may help to install a network speed monitoring program, such as
DUMeter (http://www.dumeter.com/).
