    still avoiding RTSP is slightly faster then using RTSP, using latest SVN.

    Found some stutter when timeshift file shifts to another file.
    Made the TS file as large as possible; but when TS-file is full and shift to a new file; live-tv stutters.
    Attached Log files.

    I have seen the same problem with bad stutters when it moves to another file. I had to go back to RTSP because of this.

    I don't have this problem (not that I have notices anyway)... And I also watching live 720p - which would worsen it - since it shifts files more often...

    But then again I use an older build than you probably (1.0 SVN 22029).

    Gents,

    remember there is a huge difference in how well the windows file sharing network performs.
    And this greatly affects the performance when not using RTSP.

    vista and win7 both use the SMB2 protocol, where as XP use the older and slower SMB1.

    When I use a win7 client on a win7 server (smb2->smb2) then it is infact performing better than RTSP mode.

    If one of the involved PCs are a XP installation, then SMB1 will always be used instead.

    So plz report ur findings when doing true smb2->smb2 performance.

    but the problem they descrive is still the problem i mentioned in this thread a long time ago. Sometimes even with smb2 <=> smb2 windows get's problems with SMB cache and delivers an old index file to the client where the new bufferfilenam is missing.
    I had made a patch for that but nobody was interested.

    All my computers are Vista or Windows 7. The computers are connected using gigabit, and I have tested the raw network performance to around 500 mbit continious transfer rate.
