Buffering Problem with BD-ISO
I'm starting to have a problem with BD-ISO, as to where every 10-15 sec the movie buffers. Now I know its not a bandwidth limit because im running
Synology DS1511+(Nas) > D-Link 24-Port DGS-1024D Gigabyte Switch > Boxee Box.
All my movies are stored on the nas (I'm also getting the TrueHD audio lost but ill make another post about problem later.),
And to me it almost seem like the boxee box was running out of bandwidth so i ran a few test on my nas and was getting 60MB/s+.
So it was not the nas. That made me start thing it was the Boxee Box so i ran a test on it and it was capping out at ~6MB/s,
now i know the boxee box only got a 10/100 card (what in the world was linksys thinking! *palmface*) but come on only ~6MB/s
did a factory reset and still the same even tried re flashing the firmware still nothing. So im wondering is anyone else having this problem? and/or
is there a fix for it.

When you say "ran a test", what exactly did you do?
Most people I've seen doing network (wired Ethernet) transfers to a drive connected to the Boxee Box via USB report anywhere from 8-11MB/s. There are always exceptions, of course.
If you can increase the read buffer on your NAS, that may help. I've seen a couple of people report remarkable performance gains when streaming to the Boxee Box in particular after increasing the buffer from 64 to 256.

By doing that all traffic ingoing and outgoing are ran through the pc. the pc is running du meter (du meter is a program that shows you the speed of the traffic that going in and out the system)
